17 - 19,2013

The 3rd European Conference on Computational Optimization (EUCCO) will be held at Chemnitz University of Technology, Germany, on July 17-19 (Wed-Fri), 2013. Previous EUCCO conferences were held 2004 in Dresden and 2007 in Montpellier. It is the aim of this conference to bring together scientists from the fields of algorithmic large-scale optimization, optimization with PDEs, and applications.

Confirmed plenary speakers are: Barbara Kaltenbacher (Klagenfurt), Christian Kanzow (Wuerzburg), Katja Mombaur (Heidelberg), Luis Nunes Vicente (Coimbra), and Andreas Waechter (Chicago).
Moreover, a number of invited focus sessions are being organized.

This is an invitation for contributed presentations.

8. - 11., 2013

3rd Int. Conference on Material Modelling, Warsaw, Poland

incorporating the

13th European Mechanics of Materials Conference

Important Dates
  • Registration Open: December 1, 2012
  • Abstract Submission: May 15, 2013
  • Early Registration: June 15, 2013
  • Paper Submission: September 30, 2013
Scientific Objectives

During the last decades material modelling has become a field of central scientific importance. Although there exist many workshops, meetings, colloquia, etc. on specific materials, and particular applications, here a single conference dedicated to material modelling with all its various facets is intended. To this end, the aim of the ICMM conference is to bring together researchers from the various fields of material modelling and materials characterization. The intention here is to cover essentially all aspects of material modelling. This will provide the opportunity for interaction among and exchange between scientists working in different subareas of material mechanics who otherwise would not come into contact with each other.

This conference is the third in the ICMM series. The first ICMM took place in 2009 in Dortmund, Germany; the second in 2011 in Paris, France.

Main Topics
  • Linear elasticity and viscoelasticity
  • Nonlinear elasticity
  • Plasticity and viscoplasticity
  • Strain gradient approaches
  • Nonclassical approaches like Cosserat and micromorphic   Atomistic/continuum transition on nanoscale
  • Granular materials and particle systems
  • Biomechanics and biomaterials
  • Electronic materials
  • Heterogeneous materials
  • Coupled eld problems
  • Creep, damage and fatigue
  • Experimental identification and material characterization
