NEWS AND EVENTS

    SPECIAL TIMELY SYMPOSIUMS

     
    If you wish to develop sessions, you need to send your request to Dr. David Hui, and upon approval from the scientific committee, we will allow you to "co-develop" the existing session topics, of course the more reputable hard working co-developers the better.
     

     
    This is a partial list of the special symposiums, many more coming. We welcome suggestions of new topics and new sessions developers.

    Deformation and Mechanical Properties of Composite Materials and Structures

       Composite materials and structures have been extensively used in a variety of industrial fields due to their excellent performances. Their deformation characteristics and mechanical properties are of great importance for evaluating the effects of strengthening, toughening and optimal design. This session welcomes up-to-date research and review presentations about techniques and applications in measuring deformation and evaluating mechanical properties of composite materials and structures. Expected topics include but are not limited to:
    1) Evaluations of deformation, mechanical properties, instability and failure behaviors (including delamination, buckling, crack) under different mechanical loads, electrical loads, thermal loads, magnetic loads, coupling loads, etc.
    2) Applications in various composite materials and structures, such as reinforced plastics, metal composites, ceramic composites, composite building materials, micro/nano materials, laminated materials, film/substrate structures, semiconductor composite structures.
    3) Non-destructive deformation measurement techniques and apparatus, such as moiré methods, the digital image correlation method, laser or holographic interferometry, electronic speckle pattern interferometry, geometric phase analysis, the grid method, the virtual fields method, etc.
        
     
    A Symposium on Biomedical Application of Nano-Materials and Composites In ICCE-25
          
      Although nanoparticle preparation technology have been developed dramatically in last 20 years from the aspects of chemistry and material science, the translation of these developed technology particularly with an orientation of biomedical application has to face the interdisciplinary challenges crossing the boundaries of chemistry, material sciences and engineering, pharmaceutics and biomedical sciences. The major aim of the proposed symposium is to promote scientific communication and dialogue between purely material-based researches and technology-driven translational activates. Such symposium would also allow to facilities further discussion on translational challenges faced from both the scientific and the regulator aspects and on future research directions of developing novel nano-composites as enabling tools for the emerging stem cell biotechnology or potential biomedical products for diagnose and treatment. The scope of the symposium will cover the following aspects:
    •    Improvement of mechanical properties, biological response and functionality
    •    Delivery of drug, genes and stem cells
    •    Enabling tool for biotechnology
    •    Safety of nanomaterials and its composites

        
     
    An Introduction of the "Porous Metals and Sandwich Structures"
         

        Ultra-light, highly porous metallic materials (foams, honeycombs and lattices) have positive combinations of physical and mechanical properties, such as high specific stiffness and strength, good energy absorption capacity and high gas permeability, as well as high thermal conductivity. They are therefore of much current academic and industrial interest, expecting the more and more widely uses in many important fields. Common uses of porous metals include light weight cores for sandwich structures to enhance the load-carrying capability. A typical sandwich structure consists of two thin metallic/composite face-sheets, with a softer crushable porous core between them. The advantages of these sandwich structures relative to the corresponding solid monolithic counterparts of equivalent mass have been demonstrated. This symposium is aimed to provide an international forum for academia and practitioners to share the leading edge scientific knowledge in the related areas. It will update the latest progress of porous metals and sandwich structures covering the preparation, characterization and applications; quasi-static and dynamic response; and experimental, theoretical and simulation aspects.
