This is the latest in a series of conferences dedicated to the use of X-ray, electron and optical coherence for phase retrieval and coherent scattering, imaging matter as well as probing structure and dynamics. The conference first took place at Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory, in May 2001, and is now held every 2 years. It is traditionally held in a waterside location (Palm Cove 2003, Porquerolles 2005, Asilomar 2007, Warnemunde 2010, Fukuoka 2012, Evanston 2014 and Saint Malo 2016) which encourages a relaxed
Conference chairs: Ian Robinson, Yong Chu.
Save the date: Conference from June 25 to 28th 2018.
Draft programm is available in the document below. Further information on the conference will follow soon.

ICEM18, the eighteenth International Conference of experimental Mechanics organized under the auspices of the European Society for Experimental Mechanics (EuraSEM) in July 1-5, 2018, in Brussels- Belgium, will bring a unique opportunity to get acquainted with the(se) latest exciting developments in the field of experimental mechanics. A unique opportunity to meet and interact with renowned international scientists and experts from academia and industry. It is the aim of the conference to provide a forum for discussion, exchange of new ideas, for the establishment of new friendships and collaborations and for the dissemination of recent acquired knowledge in an area of utmost scientific and technological importance.
Focus on one special session: Thin films and nanostructures: mechanical and associated functional properties
Organizers: Damien Faurie (Université Paris 13 Nord, France) and Megan Cordill (Erich Schmid Institute of Materials Science, Austria).
Deadline for abstract submission: November 30, 2017

Subject of the session: Nano-objects such as ultrathin layers, quantum dots, nanoparticles, nanowires, are at the heart of an intense research activity, because of their specific properties and their potential use in a vast range of applications. It is of prime importance to understand how these properties can be modified by stresses, independent whether they are externally applied or a consequence of growth or processing including local re-arrangements of the atomic structure and chemistry. Several answers were recently obtained through the development of experimental devices allowing for fabricating nano-objects, measuring strain fields at the nanoscale or structure-chemistry relations determined with atomic resolution. Besides, simulations begin to reach the point of closing the gap with experiments, opening the way to fruitful comparisons. Overall, investigations indicate that mechanical properties dramatically change when characteristic dimensions are reduced to the nanoscale. However, there is still a long road to be able to make routine measurements, to predict behaviors from simulations and models, and to fully determine and understand the mechanisms at play in these objects. The objective of this symposium is to present latest results in this multidisciplinary field, and to stimulate discussions to overcome the current state of the art. More specifically, we welcome submissions related to:
- Mechanical properties at small scale, such as elasticity, plasticity, fatigue and fracture
- Development of methods allowing for local fields mapping or mechanical te
- Coupling between growth, stress and composition in nano-objects
- Modeling and numerical simulations
- Strain-engineered physical properties
- Christoph Kirchlechner (Max-Planck-Institut für Eisenforschung, Düsseldorf, Deutschland & Materialphysik, Montanuniversität Leoben, Austria)
- Hosni Idrissi (Université Catholique de Louvain, Belgien)
- Jon Molina Aldareguia (Madrid Institute of Advanced Materials, Spanien)
- Sandrine Brochard (Université de Poitiers-CNRS-ENSMA, Frankreich)
Organizers: Prof. Gerhard Dehm (Max-Planck-Institut für Eisenforschung GmbH), Prof. Olivier Thomas (IM2NP Aix-Marseille Université), Dr. Laurent Pizzagalli (Institut P’).
Abstract submission deadline: December 1, 2017.

The 10th European Solid Mechanics Conference, organized by the University of Trento and the University of Bologna, will be held in Bologna, under the auspices of EUROMECH, during July 2-6, 2018.
The ESMC is the major event for the solids mechanics community in Europe and provides a unique forum for scientists and engineers to exchange ideas on the current state-of-the-art in the mechanics of solids, on new concepts and ideas and to identify new research directions. The General (contributed) Sessions for this conference have been organized into nine main areas. In addition, more than 50 Mini-Symposia will be organized in a range of specialized topics.
Focus on one Mini-symposium: 4-1 - Experimental Micromechanics and Nanomechanics
Organizers: Gerhard Dehm (Max-Planck-Institut für Eisenforschung), Jon Molina-Aldareguía (IMDEA Materials Institute), Miguel Monclus (IMDEA Materials Institute)
Description: Micro and Nanomechanical testing methods have become extremely important to characterize the mechanical behavior of materials. There has been a rapid expansion of available testing strategies in recent years to examine elastic, plastic, and fracture properties of materials at small scales, with control of loading mode, temperature and atmosphere, including imaging in real-time. This symposium aims to bring together the rapidly growing micro- and nanomechanical testing research community, particularly in the areas of:
- Testing of nanostructures, thin-films and coatings
- Interface phenomena
- FIB/lithography based nano- and micromechanical testing
- Time-resolved in situ SEM, EBSD, AFM, X-Ray/synchrotron and TEM mechanical testing
- Size effects in mechanical properties
- Deformation mechanisms in small volumes
- Fracture at small length scales
Deadline for abstract submission : November 15, 2017
