Instabilities in Solids and Structures (ASME – Nov 2019)

Dear Colleague:

We, the AMD IiSS Technical Committee organizers, are pleased to continue our long-standing tradition of arranging a symposium on « Instabilities in Solids and Structures » at the annual ASME-International Mechanical Engineering Congress and Exposition (IMECE). The Congress this year will be held in Salt Lake City, Utah during the period of November 8-14, 2019. Contributions on instability in both material and structural systems are welcome. As you are aware, this is a major mechanical engineering meeting with upwards of 2,000 international participants. Our Technical Committee has participated with success in the Congress since 1994 and we certainly would like to keep up this tradition.

Our symposium accepts ONLY « Presentation Only » abstracts and the « Presentation Only Abstract Submission » deadline this year is July 22, 2019.

Participation requires just the submission of an abstract by July 22, 2019. (This is a hard deadline; do not expect an extension.)

Upload your abstract at your earliest convenience; the symposium is in Track 11 « Mechanics of Solids, Structures and Fluids » as Topic « 11-37 Instabilities in Solids and Structures »

This year, we are pleased to continue our collaboration with the ASME AMD Technical Committee on Soft Matter. If you work on problems in this area that include instabilities, we encourage you to submit an abstract to our session.

Please let us know by return e-mail if you have any questions or concerns.

Sincerely,

Ryan S. Elliott

infos journées GdR mecafib (26-27 mars, Lyon)

Bonjour à toutes et à tous,

Les prochaines journées de du GdR mecafib auront lieu les 26 et 27 mars prochains à Lyon et porteront sur la prise en compte des phénomènes de variabilité dans les milieux fibreux. Pour nous éclairer sur cette problématique importante, nous avons invité trois chercheurs référents du domaine :
Dominique Jeulin (Centre de Morphologie Mathématique, Mines ParisTech), qui nous parlera de modélisation morphologique de milieux fibreux aléatoires, d’approche statistique du VER pour ce type de milieux, et de modèles statistiques de rupture adaptés ;
Maurice Lemaire (Institut Pascal, Univ. Clermont Auvergne), dont la ligne directrice de l’intervention sera de souligner que chaque fois qu’un modèle numérique est mis en œuvre, il faut se poser la question des incertitudes sur les données et sur le modèle ;
Christian Soize (laboratoire Modélisation et Simulation Multi Echelle, Univ Paris Est), qui nous parlera de modélisation stochastique des champs, d’identification statistique inverse, d’apprentissage probabiliste sur les variétés, et d’optimisation de design sous incertitudes en mécanique numérique.
Nous comptons sur vous pour venir les écouter, échanger avec eux, et par la même présenter vos travaux, qui plus est en lien avec la thématique.

L’ensemble de ces informations, ainsi que le formulaire d’inscription se trouvent sur le site web de mecafib à l’adresse suivante :

Nous vous attendons nombreux à Lyon!

Complex Motion in Fluids (Denmark, august 2019)

Please find enclosed the first call for the 9th summer school « Complex Motion in Fluids » (www.fysik.dtu.dk/CMiF2019) held in Gilleleje north of Copenhagen 18-24 August 2019, organized by us in collaboration with University of Cambridge, Ecole Polytechnique, and University of Twente.

The topics for 2019 include microscale acoustofluidics, acoustic tweezers, slippery surfaces, micro swimmers, and biomechanics, and they are presented by nine international lecturers each giving a 1-hour and a 1½-hour lecture (see the attached call). Traditionally, all attendees (PhD students, postdocs and researchers) are presenting their own research either in a 12-minutes contributed talk or at one of the two poster sessions.

The invited lecturers this year are
Michaël Baudoin, Université Lille 1 (FR)
Thomas Laurell, Lunds Universitet (SE)
John Bush, M.I.T. (US)
Julia Yeomans, University of Oxford (UK)

Granular materials and grain-fluid mixtures (juin 2019-StPetersbourg)

SYMPOSIUM AND CONFERENCE IN SAINT PETERSBURG (RUSSIA) NEXT JUNE

Dear colleagues,

I would like to invite you to submit a contribution to the mini-symposium on ‘Granular materials and grain-fluid mixtures’ which I am organizing within the conference

Advanced Problems in Mechanics

taking place in Saint-Petersburg, from June 24 to June 29 of this year. See the web site : http://www.apm.ruweb.net/

In addition to sharing ideas about the vastly evolving research theme of the symposium, and to enjoying the extraordinary city of Saint-Petersburg in the time of the ‘white nights’, this is of course a special opportunity to meet our Russian colleagues, members of a scientific community with strong traditions in mechanics and condensed-matter physics, who are very much interested in exchanging with foreign scientists.

The deadline for abstracts is March 15.

Looking forward to meeting you in Russia !

Best regards,

Jean-Noel Roux
