On behalf of the International Research Centre for the Mathematics & Mechanics of Complex Systems (M&MoCS),  it is our great pleasure to invite you to the EUROMECH-Colloquium 579 in Arpino (FR), Italy.

The Euromech Colloqium is intended to provide a forum for experts in generalised and microstructured continua with inextensible fibers to exchange ideas and get informed about the latest research trends in the domain. Generalized continua with inextensible fibers (GCIF) are today employed in very wide class of applications, from the design of special fabrics to biological tissue engineering. The scientific problems posed by the growing needs of this kind of applications involve a very large number of areas, as the theoretical coverage, the designing of suitable experimental procedures and the development of specific numerical tools are all crucial aspects of the general picture. The importance of scientific meetings is therefore felt in this subject with particular intensity. The proposed topic lies in the framework of generalized continua. While being particularly suitable to model (almost all) natural materials, classical continuum models have poor prediction power when advanced architectured materials are concerned. In the recent past, indeed, the development of new technical manufacturing possibilities has pushed for a great (but still not sufficient) development of generalized continua.

We look forward to welcoming you at the EUROMECH-Colloquium 579
