Stephan Rudykh's picture

Dear Colleagues:  the 56th Annual Technical Meeting of the Society of Engineering Science will be hosted by Washington University in St. Louis on October 13-15, 2019. As part of this meeting, we are organizing a Symposium (7.3) 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, IPMC)

•Hydrogels and other soft wet materials 

•Liquid crystal elastomers

•Shape-memory and light-sensitive polymers

•Instabilities in soft materials

•Fracture, and adhesion in soft materials

•Soft biological and bio-inspired materials

•Multiphysics phenomena in soft materials

•Wave propagation and dynamics of soft materials

•3D/4D printing and fabrication of soft materials

•Soft Robotics or Machines

•Mechanical Metamaterials


To submit your abstract, please visit the conference website or abstract submission webpage 


The deadline for abstract submission is April 30, 2019.

We look forward to seeing you in St. Louis this October!
