Society of Engineering Science (SES) Annual Conference 2021

Shailendra's picture

We are happy to announce the 2021 SES Meeting to be held in October. This year’s SES Meeting is an exciting departure from conventional virtual conferences. It will be organized as a Virtual Month ( spread over five days (October 1, 5, 15, 19, and 29). Each day will be a theme, which includes a fishbowl event, presentation, and poster session. A fishbowl is similar to a panel discussion, but with more interaction and informality. We hope this format will provide both scientific knowledge and entertainment for the community. The fishbowl will comprise a moderator and 3-4 panelists who will discuss questions posed by the audience. The themes are as follows:

Size matters (Oct. 1): micro, nano, architected solids, and slender structures.
Living matter (Oct. 5): biosystems, biomaterials, and biofluids.
Interactions matter (Oct 15): coupled-fields, fluid-solid interactions, fluids, and granular and meta-materials.
Soft matter (Oct 19): soft materials and structures, soft robots, and soft meta-materials.
Frontiers matter (Oct 29): advances in mechanics, emerging topics, data-driven mechanics, and the direction and nature of mechanics research in the next 20 years.

The call for poster abstract submission has been launched. You may submit an abstract using the link on the conference webpage: The deadline for the poster abstract is 1 August 2021. For accepted abstracts, actual poster submission (including a 1-2 minute optional video) will be due by 15 September via a separate link to be provided at a later date.

We look forward to receiving your abstract submissions.
