A highlight of the EOT activities aimed at researchers is the annual NEES Centrifuge Research & Training Workshop organized jointly by the NEES@RPI and NEES@UCDavis. The training locations alternate between the RPI facility and the UC Davis facility.
In FY07, the NEES 3rd Annual Centrifuge Research and Training Workshop was held at the NEES@UCDavis facility on November 6-9, 2006. Approximately thirty researchers attended the workshop, organized by the RPI and UC Davis centrifuge centers.
The highlights of the workshop were hands-on centrifuge experimental experiences, including: model preparation and construction, sensor calibrations and instrumentations, data processing and archiving, and conducting a robot experiment at high g.
