1st Announcement & Call for Papers

We call upon the mechanics and materials community to join us in the 8th International Conference on Mechanics and Materials in Design (M2D). M2D was born in 1990 in Toronto (Canada). It was later run in Orlando (USA) Nagoya (Japan), Nottingham (UK), Porto, Madeira and Albufeira (Portugal). It attracted some of the most talented and active researchers in this field. The international Scientific Committee has approved the running of M2D in the University of Bologna (Italy), 4-6 September, 2019. The event will encompass keynote speakers, invited talks, contributed oral and poster presentations, a number of topical symposia, and exhibits from different companies and publishers.
