Scientific programme

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

    • complex media: micropolar theory, chemomechanics, acoustic metamaterials etc.
    • nano-, micro- and mesomechanics
    • geomechanics
    • phase transitions and nonlinear elasticity
    • plasticity
    • solids and structures
    • mechanical and civil engineering applications
    • fluid and gas
    • wave motion
    • computational mechanics
    • nonlinear and multibody dynamics, chaos and vibration
    • problems of the oil and gas sector
    • Minisymposia:
      1) Minisymposium on biomechanics
      Organizer: Olga S. Loboda (Peter the Great St. Petersburg Polytechnic University, Russia)
      2) Minisymposium "Advances in micromechanics of materials"

      8) Minisymposium "Nonlinear waves in continuous media"
      Organizers: Vladimir I. Erofeev (Mechanical Engineering Research Institute of the Russian Academy of Sciences or MERI RAS), Alexey V. Porubov (IPME RAS, Saint Petersburg)
      9) Minisymposium "Mechanics of glassy and ceramic products and technologies"
      Organizers: Vladislav Golyatin, Alexander Dotsenko (Corning Scientific Center, St. Petersburg, Russia)
      10) Minisymposium "Mathematical modeling in petroleum engineering"
      Organizers: Vitaly A. Kuzkin (Peter the Great St. Petersburg Polytechnic University; IPME RAS, Russia), Alexander M. Linkov (IPME RAS, Russia; Rzeszow University of Technology, Poland), Liliana Rybarska-Rusinek (Rzeszow University of Technology, Poland)

A number of leading researchers in the above fields will be delivering keynote lectures:
(preliminary information)

Four different forms of presentations are offered, namely, plenary lectures (35 minutes), presentations at minisymposia (25 minutes), oral communications (20 minutes), and poster presentations.
The working languages for oral presentations is English.
Attention: each participant may only give one oral presentation.
