Multiscale Innovative Materials and Structures - MIMS19

MIMS19 - February 28th - March 2nd, 2019 - Cetara, Amalfi Coast


We are very happy to announce the "2019 International Workshop on Multiscale Innovative Materials and Structures" (MIMS19) to be held from February 28th through March 2nd, 2019 in Cetara (Salerno), Italy.  The Workshop will be held at the Cetus Hotel located in a scenic venue of the beautiful Amalfi Coast (video).

Contributions related, but not limited, to the following areas are welcome:
Multiscale mechanics
Architectured materials and composites
Lattice materials and structures
Mechanical and acoustic metamaterials
Tensegrity systems at different scales
Granular materials
Smart materials and structures
Microstructure engineering

Preliminary programme

The "2019 International Workshop on Multiscale Innovative Materials and Structures " (MIMS19) " will be held from February 28th through March 2nd, 2019.

Deadline for Abstracts Submission is November 30 2018.

A special issue of Mechanics Research Communications will collect original, peer-reviewed contributions presented at the Workshops. Papers in this issue are aimed at bringing together researchers working at the forefront of applied mechanics, material science and engineering, and physics to further our understanding of mechanics of materials at different scales, and its application to the design, modeling, manufacturing and experimentation of innovative multiscale materials and structures. Submission deadline: 30 April 2019 - Acceptance deadline: 31 October 2019.


Keynote lectures

Davide Bigoni, University of Trento: "Slip surfaces, shear bands, and the dynamics of flexural lattices"
Fernando Fraternali, University of Salerno: "Novel acoustic applications of tensegrity structures"
Howon Lee, Rutgers University: "Micro 3D printing for tunable mechanical metamaterials"
Glaucio H. Paulino, Georgia Institute of Technology: "Origami engineering: configurational metastructures and metamaterials"
Anthony D. Rosato, New Jersey Institute of Technology: "Vibrated granular systems: From density relaxation to fluidizations"
Robert E. Skelton, Texas A&M University: "Tensegrity approximations in continuum mechanics"




The meeting room, the terraces and the banquet halls of the Hotel Cetus will host the scientific and social activities of the Workshop. The hotel is equipped with 37 rooms, all with sea view, air-coditioning and internet wi-fi, and offers a private beach, wellness and fitness centers.

Transportation services allow access to daily shuttles from/to Salerno. Accommodation at Cetus for two nights is included in Full Registration Fees. See also the following video.

Alternative accommodations are available at nearby hotels. Transportation services included in basic and full registration fees allow access to daily shuttles from/to the Airport of Naples and the hotels listed on the dedicated webpage.
