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