June 30 – July 5, 2014, St. Petersburg, Russia
The International Conference “Advanced Problems in Mechanics — 2014” is organized by the Institute for Problems in Mechanical Engineering of the Russian Academy of Sciences (IPME RAS) and St. Petersburg State Polytechnical University (SPbSPU) under the patronage of the Russian Academy of Sciences (RAS).
The conference is the 42th in a series of annual summer schools.
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.
