ASME Soft Materials TC - 2019 annual meeting - IMECE 2020 - Vote for new editor position

Dear Colleagues,

Following up on ASME IMECE 2019 last week, please find attached the slides and minutes of the Soft Materials technical committee meeting.

In preparation for ASME IMECE 2020 next year in Portland, OR, please send your suggestions for topics/sessions/organizers before November 24, 2019. As a reminder, the sessions for this year were Polymer Gel, Biomechanics and Biomaterials, Liquid Crystal Elastomer, Soft Actuating Materials, Mechanics of indentation, injection and cavitation, Structure and Devices, Constitutive Modeling, Aging and Damaging, Soft Matter Physics.

In addition, we elect every year a new Editor for our technical committee, who will then become the secretary, vice-chair, and ultimately the chair. The leadership is a great opportunity to network and steer the committee. The editor will be chiefly in charge of writing and disseminating the February 2020 newsletter along with assisting the rest of the leadership as the 2020 conference approaches. The editor is chosen by popular vote cast by email from members of the TC.

  • If you would like to run for the Editor position, please email the TC leadership or stating so by November 30, 2019. Also, please include a short bio (less than 200 words) in which you say a bit about yourself and your vision for the committee (as in which topics would you like to promote and/or what ideas do you have to increase the impact of the committee).
  • If you would like to take part in the vote for the Editor position but are not already in the mailing list, please email stating so by November 30, 2019 to be added to the list and to receive the information pertaining to the vote.

Vote will happen by email between December 1, 2019 and December 31, 2019, and the new editor will be announced early January 2020.

Best wishes!

2019-2020 TC leadership:
