About the Course
We would like to invite you to submit an abstract for the 2010 ASME IMECE in Vancouver, to be held November 12-18, 2010. Our minisymposium is on "Multiphysics Simulations and Experiments for Solids", and is the continuation of a very successful minisymposium held at the 2009 IMECE that resulted in more than 50 presentations. This year's focus areas are:
Two days of lectures by representatives of the industry, as well as clinical and academic speakers, presentations by the Mimics Innovation Awards winners, ground-breaking case studies, the latest innovations in additive medical technologies, etc. will make you get to know all new features and clinical applications of the software. You will meet your colleagues and experts in the field in a sensational setting. This year we will host one Main Session on April 22, and a dedicated FEA session on April 23. The best part is... you don’t pay anything!

8th International Tutorial Workshop on PFM and Nanoscale Electromechanics of Polar Materials, August 25-27, 2010, Beijing, ChinaSubmitted by jiangyuli on Wed, 2010-01-20 19:18.
This workshop aims
to provide in-depth description and recent advances in piezoresponse force microscopy (PFM) and nanoscale
electromechanics. It will introduce basic principles of PFM operation, relevant
instrumental aspects, and image interpretation. The theory of cantilever
dynamics, PFM contact mechanics, resolution theory, and their implications for
qualitative and quantitative data interpretation will be presented. The recent
technical advances, including vector PFM, high-frequency PFM, band-excitation
and DRFT imaging, switching spectroscopy PFM, and imaging and polarization
switching in liquids and vacuum, will also be illustrated. For ferroelectric
and multiferroic materials, applications of PFM for domain imaging, nucleation
