M2D2019 is the biennial conference on Mechanics and Materials in Design

M2D2019 is the eighth international gathering of academics, scientists and engineers interested in the fields of mechanics, engineering design, advanced materials, energy harvesting, reliability, quality and safety engineering, and is planned for September 4-6, 2019 in Bologna, Italy.

This series of conferences started in Toronto in 1994, and it is organized every two years, alternating with the IRF conference series. These meetings resulted from the belief that of those disciplines associated with advanced engineering design and manufacturing, engineering mechanics, computational mechanics, nanoengineering, composites engineering, failure analysis and diagnostics, reliability and safety engineering have made the most significant advances in recent years. Important and dramatic improvements in systems and component design can be made by the use of the latest advances in these disciplines, and the associated failure mechanisms. Their effect on the environment is significant and will help in avoiding global warming and harmful emissions.

Institutional Sponsors:
University of Bologna | University of Porto | University of Toronto

Contributed papers in the fields of Nanotechnologies, Nanomaterials, Biomechanics and Experimental and Computational Mechanics applied to Mechanical, Aeronautical, Space, Civil, Automotive, Biomedical, Environmental, and Nuclear Engineering will be welcome.

The conference will also include an Open Forum on The Challenges Facing Engineering Education, where an expert panel with over 100 years of collective and active research and education experience will address the obligations of professors to meet the demands of their stake holders and challenges facing engineering education.
