The Fourth Biot Conference on Poromechanics
will be held at Columbia
in 2009. Columbia
was the home for Maurice A. Biot during the period from 1937-1945.
Biot, who was affiliated with the Department of Physics, had very close
interaction with the colleagues in the Department of Civil Engineering,
Prof. Raymond D. Mindlin.
Conference will also emphasize on the theories and applications of
poromechanics to new and emerging fields, including life science, earth
science, and new materials, in addition to the traditional areas of
poromechanics such as geotechnical engineering, petroleum engineering,
In addition to
the historic links between Biot and Columbia University, New
City has many well known attractions that are especially appealing for
international participants. It is easily accessible from all over the
through three international airports: JFK, Newark Liberty and LaGuadia.
public transportation system, including the subways and buses, is well
