SES-2017: Mechanics and Physics of Soft Materials -- Call for abstracts

Stephan Rudykh's picture

Dear Colleagues,

The 54th Annual Technical Meeting of the Society of Engineering Science, a joint event with the Applied Mechanics Division of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers, will be hosted by Northeastern University, on July 25-28, 2017 at its Boston campus. As part of this meeting, we are organizing a symposium to address recent experimental, computational, theoretical and manufacturing advances in the research area of Mechanics and Physics of Soft Materials. Topics of particular interest include (but not limited to):

  • Electroactive and magnetoactive elastomers (EAP, DE, MRE, MAE)
  • Hydrogels and soft wet materials
  • Liquid crystal elastomers
  • Shape-memory and light-sensitive polymers
  • Ionic Polymer-Metal Composites (IPMC)
  • Microstructural instabilities, fracture, and adhesion in soft materials
  • Soft biological and bio-inspired materials
  • Multiphysics phenomena in soft materials
  • Wave propagation in soft materials
  • 3D/4D printing and fabrication of soft materials
  • Soft Robotics or Machines


To submit your abstract, please visit the conference website or abstract submission webpage or click "submit abstract" at the symposium description page

Symposium VII-C: Mechanics and Physics of Soft Materials

The deadline for abstract submission is April 15, 2017.

We look forward to seeing you in Boston this summer!
