Workshop Graphyz 2 (16-19 octobre 2022 )

Dear colleagues,

We are excited to announce that the second edition of Graphyz will be held on October 16-19 2022 at the Saline Royale d’Arc-et-Senans (France)
https://project.inria.fr/graphyz2/

The aim of Graphyz is to bring together the Computer graphics and Physics/Mechanics communities: various systems such as fluid flows, hair and fabrics, folds and crumpled sheets, bubbles and foams, programmable materials, snow avalanches, etc. are studied using different approaches: in graphics, the focus is primarily on developing numerical models that are visually convincing, efficient and controllable so as to serve narrative and artistic goals, while physics/mechanics is all about developing predictive mathematical models and confronting them to real experiments. We believe that there is much to learn and to gain from the interaction of these communities which have been expanding since the very exciting first edition of Graphyz in 2019 (https://project.inria.fr/graphyz/).


Important dates

  • Registration and submission of optional oral presentations: from 20th June 2022R
  • Registration deadline: 16th September 2022
  • Workshop: 16th October-19th October 2022

The registration will open on June 20th. It is free and includes on-site accommodation. The number of participants is however limited and the available seats are expected to fill up quickly. If you plan to submit an oral presentation (new for this second edition, see below), have your title ready before you register, ideally on June 20th.
The workshop will start on Sunday October 16th before dinner and end on Wednesday October 19th after lunch. Participants are required to be present during the entire period. The schedule will include comfortable time slots for informal discussions.


Keynote Sessions (to be presented in duets, except for the opening)

  • Validation of physical models: Florence Bertails-Descoubes (Inria Grenoble) & Sébastien Neukirch (CNRS – Sorbonne Université)

Contributed oral presentations

Graphyz2 will also include sessions with contributed oral presentations. The goal is to foster discussions and collaborations by showing ongoing work of interest to both communities.
Upon registration, you will be given the option to submit a title and a few lines of abstract. Abstracts will be selected based on their interest to a mixed (computer graphics and physics/mechanics) audience. There is no obligation for the presenter to have a record of published work at the intersection of these two fields. Student presentations are warmly encouraged.
Particular attention will be given to the following themes on which La Saline is committed on the long term:

  • medical applications
  • musical applications (motion and gestures capture)
  • biodiversity, sustainable development & landscapes
  • architectural monuments & digitization

Submissions on topics not included in this are welcome as well, such as

  • computational architecture, structural mechanics
  • slender bodies, shells, cloth simulation
  • granular materials
  • biological applications (plants, locomotion)
  • sport

Looking forward to seeing you soon at the workshop!

With kind regards,

Applied Mathematical Challenges and Recent Advances in the Micro-Mechanics of Matter 2022 , 1-2 September 2022 in Bristol, UK

Understanding the mechanical behaviour of solids, liquids and soft and biological materials requires insight into phenomena at different length scales (from bacterial films to volcanic flows). They are both a scientific challenge and an important technological problem. An overarching framework is provided by the name “micro-mechanics”. Combining techniques from continuum mechanics, dynamical systems and statistical mechanics, micro-mechanics uses knowledge of their microscopic structure to make predictive models of the mechanical properties of liquids, solids and soft matter.

Mini-Colloque sur la matière granulaire aux Journées de la Matière Condensée

Les Journées de la Matière Condensée se tiendront à Lyon cette année (http://jmc2022.univ-lyon1.fr/fr/pages/jmc-2022-home). Plusieurs Mini-Colloques concernent les dynamiques collectives pour la matière condensée (MC5), ou considéré de manière plus générale (MC6). Nous avons proposé un minicolloque intitulé « MC7 : Comportements collectifs de grains en interaction avec leur environnement« . Ce mini-colloque vise à rassembler des contributions tournées vers l’étude des matériaux granulaires dans toute la diversité des situations dans lesquelles ils peuvent se retrouver. Doctorants et chercheurs expérimentés dont les travaux scientifiques concernent ces thématiques sont donc cordialement invités à participer à ce minicolloque.

La date limite pour les soumissions d’abstract est fixée au 15 Avril. 

A bientôt, 

Guillaume Dumazer, Guilhem Mollon et Olivier Bonnefoy

Dear colleagues,

We would like to bring to your attention the summer school « Disorder in Complex Systems « , to be held at Institute Pascal of Paris-Saclay University (France), from June 7 to June 17 2022

The website has been updated and is available at

https://www.institut-pascal.universite-paris-saclay.fr/en/scientific-programs/disorder-complex-systems [main page]

https://indico.ijclab.in2p3.fr/event/7771/ [detailed information]

This intense two-week school is intended for graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, and professionals seeking to overcome traditional disciplinary boundaries in the fields relevant to the physics of complex systems. The school covers basic concepts, tools, and current topics relevant to the problem of disorder in complex systems. These include glassy systems, nonlinear dynamics, scaling, soft matter, and other topical areas or case studies.

Lectures are taught by the faculty of Paris-Saclay and guest leading educators and scholars from other renowned institutions. Formal classes and seminars, are complemented by discussions and activities hosted by the laboratories of the University.

An internship program following the 2-week school is also offered to a smaller subset of selected participants.

Tuition for the program for the selected academic participants is free of charge and it covers participation, course materials, on-site accommodation for the non-Francilian, and lunch meals.

Application is now open and should be posted before April 15 2022 via the website according to the instructions provided:

Les Houches Summer School on « The New Mechanics »

Dear colleagues,

I have the pleasure to advertise the « New Mechanics » Les Houches Summer
School,
organized next August by Pierre Verlot, Hubert Krenner end myself.

The School is motivated by the development of ultra-sensitive mechanical
systems over the past 30 years,
in areas such as atomic force microscopy, macroscopic resonators,
biophysics, the statistical physics of non-equilibrium systems…
The school will cover these expanding fields, both from a theoretical
and an experimental point of view.
Participants will also have the opportunity to discover the basics of
experimental physics
by designing, building, soldering, interfacing  and operating a cm-size
mockup of an AFM.

See more details about the school at
https://houchesnewmech.sciencesconf.org/
or
