The objective of the workshop is to bring together researchers with an interest in soft condensed matter and biophysics to discuss their work and explore collaborations. The one day workshops is held four times a year which offers the opportunity for discussion and exchange of ideas between students, post-docs, and professionals. An additional objective of the NECF workshops is to help the career development of students and post-docs by introducing them to the local academic and industrial research community.

The first meeting of the NECF was in December 1999 and meetings have been held at Boston University, Brandeis University, Brown University, Clark University, Harvard University, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, Schlumberger-Doll Research Center, Tufts University, University of Connecticut, the Universities of Massachusetts at Amherst and Boston, University of Rhode Island, and Yale University. Workshops typically consist of four longer talks, each about 30 minutes long, but with 45 minutes allotted per speaker to allow for lots of discussion. In addition, everyone who attends is encouraged to give a five minute update (soundbite) of their current work. Equally important is ample time scheduled for coffee and lunch breaks for informal discussion.
