Symposium Honoring Professor J. W. Hutchinson at IMECE'08 (Boston)
To coincide with this year’s IMECE in Boston, the Fracture and Failure Mechanics Technical Committee is organizing a series of sessions to honor Professor John W. Hutchinson’s seminal contributions as he moves into semi-retirement. The organizers request abstracts in contemporary research related to fracture and failure mechanics. Topics that relate to Professor Hutchinson's many past and present research activities in other areas are also welcome.
Please use the following ASME site to submit your abstract before March 3, 2008. Submit to Track 12 (Mechanics of Solids, Structures, and Fluids) and then Session 31 (Symposium Honoring John W. Hutchinson). You should also send a copy to one of the organizers below. We look forward to your participation. Feel free to circulate this announcement among your colleagues.
