Welcome from the Chairs
In general, experimental mechanics is indispensable also in the digital world of today, for instance for the verification and validation of the numerical tools which are used during design and analysis. Even more importantly, experimental methods provide the essential input data for these simulations. Undoubtedly, experimental mechanics always played a crucial role in all stages of a material’s or structure’s life cycle from research and design to production and use until liquidation and/or recycling and it always will.
ICEM18, the eighteenth International Conference of experimental Mechanics organized under the auspices of the European Society for Experimental Mechanics (EuraSEM) in July 1-5, 2018, in Brussels- Belgium, will bring a unique opportunity to get acquainted with the(se) latest exciting developments in the field of experimental mechanics. A unique opportunity to meet and interact with renowned international scientists and experts from academia and industry. It is the aim of the conference to provide a forum for discussion, exchange of new ideas, for the establishment of new friendships and collaborations and for the dissemination of recent acquired knowledge in an area of utmost scientific and technological importance.
Besides, the technical program, I hope you will also enjoy the city of Brussel, the capital of Belgium and of Europe. Brussels - a cosmopolitan city, easy to reach and famous for its Grand-Place, its Atomium, its Manneken-Pis, its beers, waffles and chocolates - is a beautiful city worth to explore and discover.
On behalf of the organizing committee and of the European society of Experimental Mechanics, I have the pleasure to invite to ICEM18 in Brussels. Thanks to your presence ICEM18 will be an unforgettable and rewarding gathering both from scientific, social and entertainment points of view.
We look forward to welcoming you to Brussels in July 2018.
