The final revised versions will be published as open-access papers in a dedicated volume on the EPJ Web of Conferences (http://www.epj-conferences.org) prior to the beginning of the conference on July 3, 2017.

Note that you need to create an account (different from that used for abstract submission and registration) prior to paper submission.
As we have a tight schedule, the time will be strictly adhered to. A computer will be provided if necessary for presentations in Microsoft PowerPoint, PDF or Keynote formats. Be sure that your presentation is uploaded to the computer well before your presentation and definitely no later than the session break before your scheduled presentation. Please also ensure that your presentation is run properly. Please inform your session chair during the session break of your personal information.
Time allotted for oral presentations
All contributors to the scientific program of the upcoming conference “Powders & Grains 2017” in Montpellier, including keynote speakers, speakers, and poster presenters are invited to submit video abstracts in relation to their contributions. The aim of the video abstracts is to increase the visibility of scientific work by conveying scientific results beyond the constraints of the written articles. Among all submissions of video abstracts, the members of the “Association pour l’Etude de la Micro Mécanique des Milieux Granulaires” (AEMMG) will select the three best contributions. Criteria for the selection are scientific contents, aesthetic aspects, and fun-factor. The winners of the Best Video Awards are announced during the closing ceremony of the conference. For instructions, please see
A poster space of A0-portait size (1.2m height x 0.85m width) will be provided. Posters can be set up at the beginning of the conference and can be removed at the end. The allocated poster time is associated with social hours. During the poster time, authors are expected to be present at their posters to reply to questions from the audience. Conference prizes for three best posters and a best video will be awarded during the gala dinner.
