CISM School on waves, June 19-23, Udine, Italy

Dear colleagues,

From June 19 to 23, 2023, we are organizing a thematic school at CISM (International Center for Mechanical Sciences),, in Udine. This school will deal with recent advances in dynamics of heterogeneous media. The following topics will be presented:

  • high order homogenization,
  • interface correctors,
  • topologically protected interface modes,
  • multistable architectural materials,
  • topological optimization.

They are addressed to PhD students as well as to experienced researchers. The speakers are Guillaume Bal, Rémi Cornaggia, Richard Craster, Dennis Kochmann, Bojan Guzina, Bruno Lombard.

We hope to see you there!
