3rd International Conference on Theoretical, Applied and Experimental Mechanics, Athens, Greece, June 15-17, 2020

Welcome by Chairman

Dear Colleagues,

Following the success of the first two International Conferences on “On Theoretical, Applied and Experimental Mechanics,” (ICTAEM_1 & ICTAEM_2) it is my great pleasure to extend you a cordial invitation to participate in the Third Conference (ICTAEM_3) to be held in Athens, Greece, June 14-17, 2020.

ICTAEM_3 will focus in all aspects of theoretical, applied and experimental mechanics including biomechanics, composite materials, computational mechanics, constitutive modeling of materials, dynamics, elasticity, experimental mechanics, fracture, mechanical properties of materials, micromechanics, nanomechanics, plasticity, stress analysis, structures, wave propagation. During the conference special symposia covering major areas of research activity organized by members of the Scientific Advisory Board will take place.

The attendees of ICTAEM_3 will have the opportunity to interact with the most outstanding world leaders and get acquainted with the latest developments in the area of mechanics. ICTAEM_2 will be a forum of university, industry and government interaction and exchange of ideas in an area of utmost scientific and technological importance.

We are sure that besides the superb technical program, you will enjoy the city of Athens with its unique history, many areas of historical interest and archaeological importance, the delicious local cuisine, and the traditional Greek hospitality.

Athens is considered as the ancient capital of the world with a long fascinating history dating from the Neolithic age, the city of the goddess of wisdom Athena, a center for the arts, learning and philosophy, home of Plato‘s Academy and Aristotle‘s Lyceum, the birthplace of democracy and of Western civilization, of the most intellectual and artistic ideas, the cradle of democracy, the host city of the first modern-day Olympic Games in 1896, and the Summer Olympics in 2004. Visit the Parthenon, visible from almost every part of the city, the ancient monuments, the museums, the Plaka, under the slopes of Acropolis, with its small winding roads,  with their steps, balconies with bougainvilleas, geraniums and jasmines, the oldest and the nicest neighbourhood of Athens. Beyond Athens, down the Attica peninsula, visit the Temple of Poseidon at Sounion, the great beaches, the nearby islands of Aegina, Hydra, Spetses and Poros you can visit in one day.
