Dear Colleagues,

The 52nd Annual Technical Meeting of the Society of Engineering Science will be hosted by Texas A&M University during October 26-28, 2015. As part of this meeting, we are organizing a mini-symposium to address recent experimental, computational, theoretical, and manufacturing advances on the mechanics and physics of soft materials. Topics of particular interest include:

  • Electroactive and magnetoactive elastomers
  • Liquid crystal elastomers
  • Shape-memory and light-sensitive polymers
  • Responsive gels and Ionic Polymer-Metal Composites (IPMC)
  • Robust soft materials such as tough hydrogels and elastomers
  • Microstructural and material instabilities
  • 3D printing of soft materials
  • Soft biological tissues and bio-inspired materials
  • Wave propagation in Soft Matter

We are writing to invite you to present your work in this symposium. To submit an abstract, please visit the conference website and choose

Focus Area III: Mechanics of Soft Materials

Symposium: Mechanics & Physics of Soft Materials

There will also be a related symposium on Soft Mechanical Structures, along with 4 other symposia on related topics ( The deadline for abstract submission is July 31, 2015.


We look forward to your participation.
