Welcome to the 9th annual NEW.Mech!


NEW.Mech is a one-day workshop that aims to bring together the New England Mechanics community with an interest in exploring new research directions in the mechanics of materials and structures, and provides an opportunity to share the latest advancements in the field.

This year we will have plenary talks from three invited guest speakers, selected short talks, a poster session, and featured videos in the "Gallery of Mechanics". There is no cost to register, and breakfast, lunch, and reception are included. Students, in particular, are strongly encouraged to take part!
