Young scientists’ school-conference “Modern Ways in Mechanics” (MWM-2017)


Young scientists’ school-conference “Modern Ways in Mechanics” (MWM), which is held within the annual international conference “Advanced Problems in Mechanics” (APM), is meant for broadening scientific outlook of young researchers in the field of mechanics and also for organizing their scientific dialogue. It is supposed that students, Ph. D. students and young Ph. D.’s under 30 (date of birth is later than 31.12.1985) from all over the world, specializing in the sphere of theoretical and applied mechanics become the main participants of the conference. In order to attract the largest possible number of various scientific areas and schools, organizing committee suggests a partial compensation for the costs connected with participation in conference, as well as extensive cultural program. One of the major purposes of conference is transfer of scientific experience from well-known scientists to their young colleagues.


The 11th consecutive young scientists' school-conference “Modern Ways in Mechanics ” will be held in frames of APM 2017. The first experience of 2007 has caused a lot of positive feedback. For two years the conference was attended by representatives of Russia, Poland, Germany, Great Britain, Australia, etc. At the moment it is the only international young scientists’ conference in the field of solid mechanics in Russia. During the conference young scientists from different countries can communicate with each other, which promotes international academic relations. Due to the fact that the conference is taking place within the framework of the international conference “Advanced Problems in Mechanics”, young participants have the opportunity to share experience and exchange ideas with the scientists working in the same sphere.


Dear participants of the MWM’2017!

The APM’2017 Organizing committee informs you, that the format of MWM presentations has been changed.

This year the Young scientists’ school-conference “Modern Ways in Mechanics” will be divided into a few different sections according to topics of your presentations.
