Scientific Program

Each day of the Congress begins with a Congress wide plenary presentation by a leader in the field of theoretical and applied mechanics. After an appropriate break for collegial interactions this is followed by invited and contributed abstracts in parallel sessions of minisymposia. There will be one parallel session in the morning (session-a of two hours), one parallel session in the early afternoon (session-b of one hour and 40 minutes), and one parallel session in the later afternoon (session-c of one hour and 20 minutes).

The minisymposia are organized into six technical tracks: (D) Dynamics, (S) Mechanics of Solids and Structures, (B) Biomechanics, (C) Computational Mechanics, (M) Nano- and Micro- Mechanics of Materials with Microstructure, and (F) Fluid Mechanics. These designations are to give some structure to the Congress; however, it is well recognized that the borders are not rigid and that contributions often bridge between these areas. The following Scientific Committee and Local Planning Committee represent these technical tracks:

  Scientific Committee Local Committee

The various minisymposia can be accessed via the above links. This will lead to a list of presentations and day and time information for each minisymposium.  In addition, a program at a glance list of times for the various minisymposia is available here.

A sortable list of presentations is also available here.

Proceedings of final abstracts for presentations will be made available to Congress registrants on a flash drive upon registration. All speakers must be registered.
