Mechano-chemistry of active materials, SES, Madrid, October 10-12, 2018

Dear Colleagues and Friends,

The 2018 conference of the Society of Engineering Sciences (   will be October 10-12, 2018 in Madrid.  We would like to invite you to submit an abstract to symposium 4.6 – Mechano-chemistry active materials.  Abstract submission opens on February, 1 2018 and closes on April 2, 2018.

This symposium brings researchers from a variety of backgrounds together for an exchange of ideas related to theory, computation, and experimentation in the area of mechano-chemistry active materials. Hoping to support mixing of ideas as well as setting new collaborations, we are looking forward to getting contributions including, but not limited to, following topics:

  • Chemically actuated biological tissues
  • Mimicking natural actuators by chemistry
  • Degradation and aging effects in ionic membranes
  • Gels
  • 4D printed materials
  • Coupled mechano-chemical oscillators
  • Mechanics and shape control of thin chemically activated structures
  • Mechanics and chemistry interplay in shooting mechanisms
  • Swelling behavior of fibered gels
  • Shape-morphing systems
  • Hydrogel composites
