77th New England Workshop on Complex Fluids
Friday, November 30, 2018
Materials Research Science and Engineering Center
Harvard University

The workshop brings together researchers with an interest in soft condensed matter and biophysics to discuss their work and explore collaborations. The day will include breaks for lunch and coffee. Attendees are encouraged to present short talks (~3 minutes), and/or posters that highlight current research. Poster spaces are first-come first-served, and early registration is encouraged. The event is free.
