General Information

The International Summer School “Advanced Problems in Mechanics”

June 20 – 28, 2007, St. Petersburg, Russia

The International Summer School — Conference “Advanced Problems in Mechanics — 2007” is the thirty five in a series of annual summer schools held by Russian Academy of Sciences. The Conference is organized by the Institute for Problems in Mechanical Engineering of the Russian Academy of Sciences (IPME RAS) under the patronage of the Russian Academy of Sciences (RAS). The main purpose of the meeting is to gather specialists from different branches of mechanics to provide a platform for cross-fertilisation of ideas.

This conference is devoted to the 20th anniversary of the Institute for Problems in Mechanical Engineering of the Russian Academy of Sciences (IPME RAS). The institute was founded in 1986 by Vladimir P. Bulatov as a branch of Moscow Institute of Mechanical Engineering. In 25 june 1991 IPME became an independent institute, which nowadays became a St. Petersburg centre of research in area of theoretical and applied mechanics. The institute includes 26 laboratories carrying out investigations in various areas of mechanics and physics. 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 Institute has strong links with research organisations and universities in many countries. The conference “Advanced Problems in Mechanics” helps us to maintain the existing contacts and to establish new ones between foreign and Russian scientists.

This year we plan to hold a special “young participants section” for students and PhD students in the frame of the Summer School-Conference “Advanced Problems in Mechanics (APM) 2007”. Participants born in 1980 or later, are invited to make their presentations at this section. The main goal of the “young participants section” is to provide the exchange of experience and scientific communication between young researchers from various cities and countries, and the possibility to meet the scientists from the leading scientific schools of the world.
