Advanced course on Modeling of Localized Inelastic Deformation (LID 2017)

Advanced course on Modeling of Localized Inelastic Deformation (LID 2017), taught by Milan Jirásek, will take place in Prague, Czech Republic, 18-22 September 2017.

This course provides an overview of modeling approaches used in the mechanics of inelastic materials and structures, with special attention to an objective description of highly localized deformation modes such as cracks or shear bands. It is one of the RILEM educational courses. The course is intended for graduate students at the doctoral level, but it can be equally useful to motivated master students, post-doctoral researchers, or senior researchers who are not specialists in this field.

ALERT Workshop 2017 – extended deadline

The deadline for the submission of abstracts for the ALERT Geomaterials Workshop 2017 (28th Edition) has been extended up to May 31, 2017!

Please submit your abstracts by email directly to the coordinators using the Workshop abstract form (doc, odt, pdf). Since time for the presentations is limited, only a part of the submitted abstracts can be chosen for the oral presentations. Therefore, we invite you to submit your abstract as soon as possible. The presentation can also be submitted as a poster. The abstracts of the posters will be published in a separate booklet (ISSN registered).

ALERT Workshop 2017 – 2nd call for abstracts

The ALERT Workshop 2017 (28th Edition) will be held in Aussois from 2nd October to 4th October, 2017. Abstracts can only be submitted to the first and third session (Monday and Wednesday, respectively), because the second half-day session on Tuesday will be held by invited speakers only. Please submit your abstracts by email directly to the coordinators using the Workshop abstract form (doc, odt, pdf). If you wish to publish your presentation after the Workshop on the ALERT website, do not forget to agree by ticking the corresponding box in the abstract form. Continue reading
