Technology has nowadays reached a paramount degree of complexity. In order to push the limits of today, we need a deep and solid understanding of the physical phenomena on which applications rely on. Formal computations or experimental observations alone can not fulfil the demand of knowledge required to unveil the mechanisms behind them. This can be only achieved when the language and the instruments of mathematical analysis are used to interpret experimental data and to predict the outcome of physical experiments. In this conference we focus on challenges at the interface between mathematics and mechanics, such as the modeling of fine microstructures, the study of defects, the effects of randomness in textures and loading, dynamic fracture, inelasticity, as well as fast phase transformations for applications to new memory devices. It is therefore important to find a common ground to set up a dialogue between these disciplines. By gathering together international experts and young researchers, we aim at fostering the interaction between scientists of different areas, as well as exposing the new generations to the cutting-edge research on the topic.
The scientific committee is composed of Antonin Chambolle, Valeria Chiadò Piat, Irene Fonseca, David R. Owen, and Roger M. Temam.
PRACTICAL INFORMATION Registration and grant applications will open in September 2021 and will close in January 2022. A call for posters will be open in the same time frame. The links will be available at the conference page linked below.
