Dear Colleagues,

The upcoming 2019 APS March Meeting will take place in Boston, MA during March 4-8, 2019. Here, we would like to invite you to contribute to a focus session called “Mechanical Metamaterials” as below. 

03.01.10 Mechanical metamaterials (GSNP)

The field of mechanical metamaterials aims at the development and understanding of materials that get their mechanical properties from their geometries, rather than solely from their chemistry. Thanks to the advent of advanced fabrication and computational techniques, the field has seen an explosion of activities. Particularly exciting directions include the creation of materials with novel and extreme mechanical properties (i.e. very light and very stiff), programmable, shape changing and advanced signaling materials, where often nonlinearities play a crucial role. Lying at the cusp between physics, engineering, and mathematics, this session aims at bringing together researchers from diverse backgrounds to forge new interdisciplinary connections.

Invited speakerProf. dr. Martin van Hecke (FOM Institute AMOLF, Universiteit Leiden

For any inquiry, please contact one of organizers: Sung Hoon Kang (Johns Hopkins University, shkang@jhu.edu), Bas Overvelde (AMOLF, B.Overvelde@amolf.nl)

You can submit the abstract in the following link.
