18th European Mechanics of Materials Conference

The European Mechanics of Materials Conferences (EMMC) is a series of biyearly meetings organised under the auspices of the European Mechanics Society, Euromech, that has taken place during the last 25 years in cities across Europe, including Nantes, Brussels and Gothenburg. The 18th edition, EMMC18, will be held in Oxford from 4th to 6th April 2022, organised by the University of Oxford’s Department of Engineering Science. The conference will be located in the Examination Schools, in the heart of Oxford. Whilst we endeavour to hold the event in person, the format is constantly under review, and may change to hybrid or online depending on the pandemic evolution and community feedback.

The conference aims to gather researchers who share a common interest in the field of mechanics of materials, yet working in a variety of application domains: material science, mechanical and civil engineering, but also biomechanics, geophysics etc. Contributions which provide a better understanding of complex phenomena associated with the mechanical response of materials at all scales, from atomistic to structural sizes, will be welcome. The scope of the conference will cover experimental, and analytical and computational modelling approaches, and contributions combining several approaches from different disciplines will be particularly encouraged.
