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 http://ses-2015.org/ 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 (http://ses-2015.org/symposia/). The deadline for abstract submission is July 31, 2015.

 

We look forward to your participation.
