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
    • nano-and micromechanics
    • molecular and particle dynamics
    • biomechanics and mechanobiology
    • 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
    • Minisymposia (to be completed):
      “Theory and Simulation of Hydraulic fracturing and related processes”
      Organizers: Kuzkin V.A. (Peter the Great St. Petersburg Polytechnic University, IPME RAS, Russia), Linkov A.M. (IPME RAS, Russia; Rzeszow University of Technology, Poland), Rybarska-Rusinek L. (Rzeszow University of Technology, Poland)
    • Minisymposia:
      “Extreme loading on structures”
      Organizers: Narinder Gupta (IIT Delhi, India), Nikita Morozov (St. Petersburg State University, Russia).

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