University of Utah Mechanical Engineering Assistant Professor Pania Newell is hosting an AmeriMech Symposium this October.

AmeriMech symposia, sponsored by the U.S. National Committee for Theoretical and Applied Mechanics, were created to promote interactions among research in areas of interest in the mechanics of fluids and solids. These events bring together interdisciplinary groups to discuss topics of a specialized nature, especially those with a potential for impact on national priorities.

This symposia is entitled “Machine Learning in Heterogeneous Porous Materials” and will bring together members of the scientific community working on porous media, materials science, and applied mathematics. The group will be discussing the state-of-the-art in each community, promoting and accelerating multi-disciplinary collaborative research, and identifying challenges and opportunities within the field.

The symposia organizers are committed to promoting Justice, Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion throughout the workshop.
