• The GDRi general School 2018 will take place in Cargèse, Corsica Oct 28-Nov 2. The (exciting) program of the school is online at : https://mecano2018.sciencesconf.org/program

    There are a few places left for poster presentations (title and abstract to be sent directly to marc.legros@cemes.fr). Poster presenters will have the priority for registration. The number of attendants will be limited to 65 persons in any case.

    The registration will be open from Sept 1 to Oct 15 and will be done directly on the Cargèse website (IESC). A link will be posted on the school webpage.As mentioned, no registration fee for this school. The world-record low fees (210/250€) are for double/single room and all breakfast/meals (except for 3 diners) and a few cool Mecano gifts.  They will be updated at the time of registration opening and will have to be paid directly to the IESC in Cargèse. 

    Looking forward to seeing you there

  • The Joint Research Centre (JRC) in Petten is looking for a Post-doc (24 months):

    Subject: "Exploratory Research Project Novel Micromechanical Testing Methods for the Characterization of Nuclear Materials/μMech."

    Description:

    The main activity concerns the development of novel micromechanical tests based on the in-situ deformation of metallic membranes produced by microfabrication techniques. The aim of the project is to develop a new methodology, including sample preparation, measurement procedures and data treatment and analysis, for mechanical testing of structural materials for nuclear applications.

    The candidate will be in charge of performing micromechanical testing ex-situ (using a nanoindentation set-up) and in-situ (inside a SEM). As well, he/she will be responsible for post-test examinations by electron microscopy, analysing the data and reporting.

    Application:

    The deadline for applications is 07 September 2018 and the link to apply is here:  http://recruitment.jrc.ec.europa.eu/?site=PTT&type=AX

  • A TMS symposium " Mechanical Behavior Related to Interface Physics", close to the themes of Mecano is organized by Jason Trelewicz, Erica Lilleoden, Nathan Mara, Siddharta Pathak, Jordan Weaver at the San Antonio TMS 2019. Abstract submission deadline is July 1st (so you can apply to the Mecano School first and send your TMS abstract the next day): More info:  http://www.tms.org/tms2019.

  • Dear member of the Mecano network, dear colleague, 

     

    The Mecano School, a once every 4 years event* will take place in Cargese, Corsica this fall, from October 28 to Nov 2, 2018.

    Lectures in the morning will be given by prominent personalities in the field of materials science/ mechanical behaviour at small scale:

     

    Jean-Noël Aqua, Daniel Caillard, Gerhard Dehm, Marc Fivel, Daniel Kiener, Gérard Michot, Thomas Pardoen, Laurent Pizzagalli, Gunter Richter, Olivier Thomas

     

    There are still a few spots for 20-30 minutes presentations in the afternoon. This is a unique opportunity to share your research.

     

    Last things:

    ·      This is a fee-less school, and only the lodging (less than 400€/5 days) will remain at your charge.

    ·      Registration will be open from Aug1st to September 30th, on the school website, but the number of attendants will be limited to 80, so you might circulate this, but moderately!

    ·      The deadline for oral presentation abstracts is set to June 30th

     

    More information on the school can be found here: https://mecano2018.sciencesconf.org
