Call for proposals from the U.S. National Committee on Theoretical and Applied Mechanics for organizing AmeriMech SymposiaSubmitted by G. Ravichandran on Sat, 2013-03-02 08:52.
AmeriMech symposia are intended to promote interactions among researchers in an area of contemporary interest in the mechanics of fluids and solids. It is expected that the symposia will address topics of a specialized nature, will be small in size (about 50 participants) with minimal cost, held in an informal setting, encourage participation of young researchers, and promote interdisciplinary ideas and discussions. This format allows for in-depth discussions and close interactions between participants. Such symposia are known to help assess the state-of-the-art and chart new directions for the future.
