Catania Workshop on Computational Mechanics and Applications of Generalized Continua to Materials with Microstructure 2015

Catania, 29 - 31 October, 2015

vendredi 15 mai 2015, par Samuel Forest

Catania, 29 - 31 October, 2015
Scuola Superiore di Catania
Villa San Saverio, via Valdisavoia 9 - Catania

organized in Catania by Massimo Cuomo, Giuseppe Mulone, Leopoldo Greco.

The first objective of this meeting is to bring together experts within Coss&Vita LIA in order to discuss topics of common interest and to develop jo
int research projects. This workshop is dedicated more precisely to the following projects of the LIA :
- Computational mechanics of generalized continua (COMECH)
- Non-linearity and Stability in Continuous Media (NLS)

It is also open to any subject related to applications of generalized continua or advanced materials.
The second objective of the meeting is to promote the actions of Coss&Vita LIA among fellow researchers and among master and PhD student.
