APM 2011 Advanced Problems in Mechanics


  International Summer School-Conference

IPME RAS

Scientific program




Scientific program and the plan of the conference are available in MS Word format.
Also, the program of Russsian-Indian seminar is avaible (in pdf).

List of Abstracts , List of Posters and the special Young scientists section for students and PhD students are availible.

Presentations devoted to fundamental aspects of mechanics, or spreading the field of applications of mechanics, are invited. We are particularly keen to receive contributions that show new effects and phenomena or develop new mathematical models. The topics of the conference cover all fields of mechanics, including, but not restricted, to

  • mechanics of media with microstructure
  • nanomechanics
  • molecular and particle dynamics
  • phase transitions
  • computational mechanics
  • wave motion
  • nonlinear dynamics, chaos and vibration
  • dynamics of rigid bodies and multibody dynamics
  • solids and structures
  • fluid and gas
  • mechanical and civil engineering applications
  • aerospace mechanics

A number of leading researchers in the above fields will be delivering keynote lectures.

Four different forms of presentations are offered, namely, plenary lectures (40 minutes), presentations at minisymposia (20 minutes), short communications (20 minutes), and posters.

The working language for oral presentations is English. Regrettably we can not provide simultaneous translation, and due to the international nature of the conference all the oral presentations must be in English.

The working languages for poster sessions are English and Russian.

Attention: each participant may only give one oral presentation. The number of posters for each participant is not limited.
