Contact Mechanics International Symposium (CMIS 2014); held at Khalifa University in Abu Dhabi, February 3-5, 2014
Please see attached for the first announcement for Contact Mechanics International Symposium (CMIS 2014); the next conference following in a series of meetings gathering engineers, mathematicians, physical scientists, and others concerned with analytical, experimental and computational treatment of interface mechanics. Full details about coverage are described in the attached announcement; the meeting will be held at Khalifa University in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates, February 3-5, 2014.
I hope you will consider submitting an abstract for this meeting, whose costs have been carefully managed to facilitate economical attendance by interested researchers. I have organized this conference in collaboration with Professors Michel Raous and Peter Wriggers, hosts of past very successful installments in this series. Abstract submissions are due November 1, 2013.
For planning purposes, we ask that you indicate your potential interest in participating (and in receiving future communications on the event) by sending a quick email response to email@example.com. We will be back to you in coming weeks with a conference website and more information about lodging and registration.
We look forward to seeing you in Abu Dhabi!
Tod Laursen, Conference Chair
