Xi Chen's picture

The ASME Multifunctional Materials Technical Committee of the Materials Division is organizing a symposium on Multifunctional Material Systems at IMECE2009 to be held in Lake Buena Vista, FL, during Nov. 13-19, 2009.

Abstract submission deadline: March 2, 2009

To submit your abstracts to this symposium, select Track 15 – Processing and Engineering Applications of Novel Materials and Topic 15-4 . At the end of the abstract, you can also indicate which subtopic (see below) you would like to contribute to.

Symposium Description:

Multifunctional materials are a class of material systems that combine multiple functions including mechanical, electronic, optical, magnetic, acoustic, and/or biological functions, and are capable of exhibiting diverse physical responses when subjected to various external conditions. Multifunctional material systems are at the forefront of current science and technology and are expected to bring important breakthroughs in various technological fields. List of the subtopics and organizers for IMECE 2009 are as following

Bioinspired materials and structures (Zhenhai Xia, University of Akron; Seyed Allameh, Northern Kentucky Univeristy)

High temperature materials (Vikas Tomar, University of Notre Dame; Jun Lou, Rice University)

Nanostructured materials (Yong Zhu, North Carolina State University; Xi Chen, Columbia University)

Smart materials and structures and Optimal design of structures (Lorenzo Valdevit, University of California at Irvine; Craig Steeves, University of Toronto)

Nanostructure and nanomaterial for sustainable energy and environment (Junhong Chen, University of Wisconsin at Milwaukee; Bingqing Wei, University of Delaware; Vikas Tomar, University of Notre Dame)

Recent Advances in Computational Methods for Characterization (Traian Dumitrica, University of Minnesota; Cristian Ciobanu, Colorado School of Mines)
