International Summer School-Conference “Advanced Problems in Mechanics”

June 21-25, 2021, St. Petersburg, Russia

In connection with the COVID-19 pandemic, the annual international conference “Advanced Problems in Mechanics” was held in an unusual online format last summer and in a mixed format last fall. It was an unforgettable experience that demonstrated that the conference can be successful even under quarantine conditions.
We are glad to inform you that this summer we are hosting another APM conference also in mixed format on June 21-25, 2021.

The special scientific session «Vibration in Science and Technology» dedicated to the memory of outstanding Russian researcher in the area of mechanics, applied mathematics and engineering, Professor Iliya Izrailevich Blekhman (29.11.1928—3.02.2021) will be held within the framework of the conference. Special talks with reminiscences about Professor Blekhman that will be presented at the separate session are also welcome.
Session Organizers:
Scientific adviser of IPME RAS, Corresponding member of RAS Professor Dmitry Indeitsev Professor of Structural Dynamics at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, Alexander Fidlin IPME RAS Head of Lab., IEEE Life Fellow, Professor Alexander Fradkov.

The International Summer School-Conference “Advanced Problems in Mechanics — 2021” is the forty nine in a series of annual summer schools held by Russian Academy of Sciences. The Conference is organized by Peter the Great St.Petersburg Polytechnic University (SPbPU) and Institute for Problems in Mechanical Engineering of Russian Academy of Sciences (IPME RAS) under the patronage of Russian Academy of Sciences (RAS).

nik2 The main purpose of the meeting is to gather specialists from different branches of mechanics to provide a platform for cross-fertilisation of ideas. The list of problems under investigation is not limited to questions of mechanical engineering, but includes practically all advanced problems in mechanics, which is reflected in the name of the conference. The main attention is given to problems on the boundary between mechanics and other research areas, which stimulates the investigation in such domains as micro- and nanomechanics, material science, physics of solid states, molecular physics, astrophysics and many others. The conference “Advanced Problems in Mechanics” helps us to maintain the existing contacts and to establish new ones between foreign and Russian scientists.
