Workshop on Micromechanics, Statistics, and Hazards of Mechanical Failure, October 19-22, 2020

Workshop on Micromechanics, Statistics, and Hazards of Mechanical Failure, October 19-22, 2020

The interdisciplinary Workshop on Micromechanics, Statistics, and 
Hazards of Mechanical Failure (October 19-22, 2020) aims to establish 
a common understanding of the theoretical foundations and the practical 
characterization of avalanche phenomena and precursors to failure in 
mechanical systems, stimulating new interdisciplinary collaborations across 
different areas and contexts. List of speakers, schedule and info: Free registration:
Event organized by Centre de Recerca Matemàtica (CRM) and sponsored by the AXA Research Fund.

All areas of research will be given serious consideration.
We also expect a similarly open opening at the associate level to be approved soon.

Journée Systèmes & Matière Complexes (16 nov 2020)

Cher(e) collègue,

La 5ème édition de la journée Systèmes & Matière Complexes aura lieu le 16 Novembre 2020

Du fait du contexte sanitaire, cette journée se déroulera exclusivement en distanciel.

Comme les éditions précédentes, cette journée se déroulera en quatre sessions de présentations courtes de 4 min + 1 min de questions (trois planches maximum). Chacune de ces sessions sera précédée d’une conférence. Les orateurs invités pour cette cinquième édition sont :

François Boué, Université Paris Saclay

Francesca Chilla, ENS de Lyon,

Thibault Charpentier, Université Paris-Saclay,

Simona Cocco, ENS de Paris

L’objectif de cette journée est de permettre à la communauté systèmes & matière complexes de se rencontrer et d’échanger autour de ses thèmes de recherche qui sont, au sens large :

·      les systèmes désordonnés,

·      les fluides complexes,

·      la dynamique complexe,

·      les approches statistiques,

·      les matériaux multi-échelle,

·      les systèmes biologiques.

Une annonce ultérieure précisera le site d’inscription pour cette rencontre gratuite mais à inscription obligatoire

Nous demandons aux destinataires de ce mail de diffuser largement l’information dans leur laboratoire et plus largement à tout public intéressé.

Merci d’avance de votre aide.

Bien cordialement

Paper Submission is open !
P&G is to share the state of the art in the physics and micromechanics of 
granular media. P&G distinguishes itself from other meetings on granular 
materials by: (a) the mixture of disciplines, (b) single session talks, and (c) 
refereed conference papers published online before the meeting. Past meetings: 
Clermont-Ferrand (1989), Birmingham (1993), Durham (1997), Sendai (2001), 
Stuttgart (2005), Golden (2009), Sydney (2013) and Montpellier (2017).
