Jianliang Xiao's picture

Dear Colleagues:

We are writing to invite you to submit abstracts to the symposium "Mechanics of Thin Film and Multilayer Structures" (Symposium IV.11) at the upcoming SES 49th Annual Technical Meeting to be held in Georgia Tech during Oct. 10-12, 2012.


This symposium will encompass recent developments in analytical, experimental and numerical analysis of mechanics of thin film and multi-layer materials. Topics of interests include, but are not limited to stress and deformation in thin films and their measurement, mechanical properties, fracture and fatigue, interfacial delamination, adhesion, hardness, toughness, creep, thin film patterning, mechanical stabilities and reliability.

The objective of this symposium is to provide a forum for researchers from academia, industry and national labs to present, discuss and exchange the latest development in the field.


To submit an abstract, please go to,  then choose "Multiscale Mechanics of Materials - Mechanics of Thin Film and Multilayer Structures". The deadline for abstract submission is April 2, 2012. Please feel free to forward this information to anyone who might be interested.
