Mini-Symposium on Modeling and Simulation of Nanostructured Materials

Dear Colleagues,

I would like to invite you to participate in the Mini-Symposium on Modeling and Simulation of Nanostructured Materials within the 4th Canadian Conference on Nonlinear Solid Mechanics, CanCNSM 2013, that will be held July 23-26, 2013, at McGill University, Montréal, Canada.

This symposium will focus on recent advances in modeling and simulation of the mechanical and physical properties of nanostructured materials aiming to provide an international forum for researchers from multidiscipline to present, discuss, and exchange the latest developments in the relevant field. Innovative theoretical and numerical approaches in modeling these novel nanomaterials will be discussed.

Topics of interests include, but not limited to, nanotubes, nanowires, nanofilms, nanocomposites, size scale effects, multiscale modeling, and multi-physics coupling of materials. Nonlinear analysis on the nanostructured materials from different aspects are encouraged.

Information on abstracts and paper submission is available on conference website:

Please let us know your intention to participate in the Mini-Symposium by contacting the symposium organizer Liying Y. Jiang

Looking forward to meeting you in Montreal at CanCNSM,
Liying Y. Jiang, Ph.D., P.Eng.
