Deadline Extended! IMECE 2013 Symposium on Advanced Nanomanufacturing and Mechanics of Structural Nanomaterials (Topic 10-7)

Xiaoding Wei's picture

Dear Colleagues,
On behalf of the co-organizers, I would like to invite you to submit an abstract to the symposium on "Symposium on Advanced Nanomanufacturing and Mechanics of Structural Nanomaterials", Topic 10-7 under track "Mechanics of Solids, Structures and Fluids" at the upcoming 2013 ASME IMECE conference to be held in San Diego, CA from November 15-21.
This symposium will review the state-of-the-art on nanomanufacturing and mechanical performance of advanced nanoreinforced and/or nanostructured fibers, composites, and ther high-performance materials with special emphasis on the mechanisms governing their deformation and failure. Experimental and modeling aspects will be covered. Biomimetic and bioinspired materials will be reviewed. Issues to be resolved to further improve materials processing and performance will be identified and discussed.
Interested authors should submit their abstracts via the website by February 14, 2013.
Please feel free to forward this to other interested parties.
We look forward to seeing you in San Diego!
