ICNEM '08 - AIX EN PROVENCE
XIII International Workshop on Nonlinear Elasticity in Materials
June 23-27, 2008
The 13th International Conference on Nonlinear Elasticity in Materials will be held from June 23 to 27, 2008, in Aix en Provence (France) at Université de la Mediterranée, IUT Aix-Provence.
The annual conference provides the means for a core group of researchers worldwide to meet, exchange information, and plan the next year's work. All persons interested are encouraged to attend. The conference is designed to stimulate interactions among researchers in nonlinear elasticity. In the morning sessions, researchers present their research findings while the afternoon sessions are aimed at exchanging information, data, and ideas.
The conference is held from Monday (06/23) to Friday (06/27). If you have some interest in Science of Nonlinear Elasticity applied to Geophysics, Civil Engineering, Medical, Aeronautics, or Nuclear, you are invited to submit an abstract.
- Basic research in geomaterials and other solids: Physical origin, nonlinear behaviour, inovant technics and technology, modelling...
- Industrial applications : Non destructive testing, diagnostic, instrumentation, data processing, imaging...
A round-table will close every topic dedicated to prospecting strategic directions for research in nonlinear elasticity and to investigating the possibility and manners to support future collaborations and projects.
A poster session will be organized.
The final program will be posted by the end of May.
Abstract Submission & Author Tips
Abstracts should be submitted as a PDF by May 2 and should include a title and a summary of no more than one page using this template. The subject of the e-mail and the name of the pdf file have to be abstract_icnem_yourname. Indicate if you prefer a presentation or a poster. A confirmation e-mail will be send by May the 15th.
Abstracts and articles can be published (optional) by ASA, in Proceedings of Meetings on Acoustics (POMA) section. This year, papers will be handled in a quick manner because the logistics are now in place. For more details, see the POMA. Posted abstracts will be available online.
To benefit from preferential tariffs, the hotel reservation form should be sent back before the 9th of May, 2008. After this date, no guarantee of availability or tariff can be made.

Town of water, town of art. Everyone knows that Aix was built and has developed around this dual identity, but the town also knows how to blend different eras and culture. Open to the world, it is a city of human dimension where the preserved heritage and the city of tomorrow blend perfectly. Here, all is colour and sensation: the light of the sky, the golden stone of the facades, the transparent green of the fountains, the shade of the plane trees, surprises held by the festival nights. Aix en Provence gives you a warm welcome.
