• There are still few places available for the Summer School on Experimental Nano-and Micromechanics, being held from 11th to 15th of September 2017 at the Max-Planck für Eisenforschung, Düsseldorf (Germany). PhD students and Postdocs are encourage to apply by sending an e-mail to micromech2017@mpie.de before the registration deadline on June 2nd.

    For reminder: The school is organized by Christoph Kirchlechner (MPIE, Düsseldorf) and Benoit Merle (FAU, Erlangen) and aims at providing a comprehensive overview on experimental nano- and micromechanical testing methods. Focus thereby is put on material properties which we can reliably extract from in situ micromechanical experiments. The school will deal with nanoindentation, methods to explore the small-scale plastic and fracture properties of materials and interfaces, frequently used characterization techniques with in situ capabilities and, finally, simulation techniques.

    Registration is limited to 40 participants. The participation fee is 250€ and includes a BBQ party and 3 lunches, as well as all drinks during the school.

    Further information can be found at www.mpie.de/2768772/scientific-events.

  • For this conference, the abstract deadline is extended:

    Oral abstract deadline extended to June 15th, 2017;
    Poster abstract deadline extended to June 30th, 2017;

    For Reminder: This conference will provide a forum for discussion of the latest activities in application of nano- and micromechanical testing methods and this is a continuation of the ECI series.

    Abstract Submission : One page abstract/s that include specific results and conclusions to allow a scientific assessment of a proposed oral presentation or poster are invited.

    Abstracts should be submitted electronically.

    Conference Chair : K.Durst, Technical University of Darmstadt

  • Many Laboratories are unaware of the existence of the Laue microdiffraction or these capacities which are superior to those of the past. In September we offer you an opportunity to take charge of the microdiffraction technique and bring it to the most effective level in the implementation of a campaign of measures well prepared and well conducted in the Data exploitation and results interpretation.

    The formation will be exclusively in French. Francophones are welcome.

    Deadline for registration: July 13th, 2017

  • The ISDMM Symposium is intended to bring together researchers in the area of the mechanics of defects (cracks, dislocations, inclusions, precipitates, phases boundaries, etc ...), as well as the mechanics of enriched or generalized continua (micromorphic, second-gradient, couple stress, etc ...), seen as a rational frameworks for the description of the effects of evolving heterogeneities and structural changes occuring at lower scales in macroscopically homogeneous continua.

    The abstracts submission for the ISDMM 2017 is now open on the symposium website : http://inl.cnrs.fr/isdmm2017

    Deadline for abstract submission : April 15th, 2017
