General Information

The International Summer School “Advanced Problems in Mechanics”

July 6 10, 2008, St. Petersburg, Russia

The International Summer School — Conference “Advanced Problems in Mechanics — 2008” is the thirty sixth 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.

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.

The special Young scientists section for students and PhD students will be held and financial support for young scientists is planed. The main goal of this 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.

Please consider a possibility to participate in the partner event: 6th Euromech Nonlinear Dynamics Conference (ENOC-2008, St. Petersburg, June 30 - July 4) . You will have a remarkable opportunity to divide your stay in two parts: several days in the city of St. Petersburg (ENOC-2008) and the rest of the time at the beautiful coast of the Baltic Sea (APM 2008). REGISTRATION FEE FOR THOSE PARTICIPATING IN BOTH EVENTS WILL BE SIGNIFICANTLY REDUCED.
