NECZA His­to­ry and Meet­ing Phi­los­o­phy — NECZA is an out­growth of dis­cus­sions held after ses­sions at the 1997 Zeo­lite and Lay­ered Mate­ri­als Gor­don Con­fer­ence, Chaired by Charles Kres­ge. NECZA seeks to max­i­mize dis­cus­sion and inter­ac­tions between the sci­en­tists who are attend­ing the meet­ing. As such, the tech­ni­cal pro­gram tends to be a bit flex­i­ble with con­tri­bu­tions from a vari­ety of back­grounds.

Tra­di­tion­al­ly, speak­ers are encour­aged to pre­pare “provoca­tive” talks and to rig­or­ous­ly keep the time for their talk which includes 10 to 15 min­utes dis­cus­sion time. The audi­ence is STRONGLY encour­aged to “par­tic­i­pate” (even, for exam­ple, by bring­ing 1 — 2 over­heads relat­ed to the talks to open up dis­cus­sion).

The poster ses­sion and grad­u­ate stu­dent talks have been a sta­ple of NECZA meet­ings. This is a won­der­ful oppor­tu­ni­ty for stu­dents to ‘get their feet wet’ in a rel­a­tive­ly friend­ly set­ting.

We very much look for­ward to anoth­er fruit­ful and engag­ing NECZA meet­ing, made pos­si­ble by your par­tic­i­pa­tion. The NECZA meet­ing serves as a nice cap to the year’s activ­i­ties and we look for­ward to catch­ing up with you all and hear­ing about your nice work at this Decem­ber tra­di­tion.

Please for­ward this note on to your col­leagues, or any oth­ers you feel might have inter­est, and don’t hes­i­tate to con­tact us if you have ques­tions.

For reg­is­tra­tion and addi­tion­al infor­ma­tion, please con­tact Joseph Fedeyko (fedeyjm@​jmusa.​com) or vis­it our web­site at www​.necza​.org

We hope to see you at the NECZA meet­ing on Fri­day, Decem­ber 13th, 2013.
