The International Summer School “Advanced Problems in Mechanics”

june 30 - july 5, 2009, St. Petersburg, Russia

The International Summer School — Conference “Advanced Problems in Mechanics — 2009” is the thirty seventh 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.

A partner conference — the 3rd ADHESINT International Workshop on:
“Adhesive interactions between particles and surfaces at micro and nano-scales”
will be held on 1-3 July at the same venue under support of the Leverhulme Trust
(please contact for further details the Network facilitator Mrs. Maria Suarez-Alvarez Tel.: +442920875909)
