In December 2006 the ASME Applied Mechanics Division (AMD) Executive Committee approved a new technical committee, Committee on Fluid-Structure Interaction (CFSI). The CFSI is sponsoring 6 mini-symposia within Track 12 "Mechanics of Solids, Structures and Fluids" of the ASME International Mechanical Engineering Congress, in Boston, October 31 - November 6, 2008. These 6 mini-symposia will have a total of 17 sessions and are titled:
The ASME International Mechanical Engineering Congress (IMECE 2008) will be held on October 31 - November 6, 2008, in Boston, Massachusetts. http://www.asmeconferences.org/Congress08/. A wide range of mechanics-related symposia (topics) are being organized in Track 12 Mechanics of Solids, Structures and Fluids. The Executive Committee of the ASME Applied Mechanics Division (AMD) believes that this track will provide a good platform for mechanics-related presentations.
