ASME IMECE 2012, “Mechanics of Adhesion” symposium

Jianliang Xiao's picture

Adhesion has long been an important issue for mechanics and
many other disciplines. Its influence spans macro-, micro-, nano- and molecular
scales. When size goes down, adhesion plays a more and more significant role.
Many important technologies attribute to adhesion, such as transfer printing
for advanced microfabrication, super adhesives inspired by gecko foot hairs,
and self-assembly. Adhesion also has strong implications on the behavior of
nanomaterials (such as nanotubes and graphenes) and biological systems (such as
cells). This minisymposium "Mechanics of Adhesion" is to provide a
forum of discussion and communication, for researchers working on and
interested in adhesion related subjects.

We sincerely invite you to submit abstracts to this upcoming
ASME 2012 International Mechanical Engineering Congress & Exposition, to be
held in Houston, Texas, on November 9-15, 2012.

Abstracts can be submitted through

"Mechanics of Adhesion" symposium is labeled 9-50.
The deadline for abstract submission is February 27. 

Look forward to seeing you!
