11th European Solid Mechanics Conference
4 - 8 July 2022, Galway, Ireland
It gives me great pleasure to announce the 11th European Solid Mechanics Conference to be held in Galway, Ireland, 4th – 8th July, 2022 (ESMC 2022). The conference is being held under the auspices of the European Mechanics Society (EUROMECH https://euromech.org/).
The European Solid Mechanics Conference is the major event for the solid mechanics community in Europe, and provides a unique forum for scientists and engineers from Europe and across the world to exchange ideas on the current state-of-the-art in the mechanics of solids, on new concepts and ideas and to identify new research directions.
Solid mechanics is the bedrock of engineering design in areas such as mechanical engineering, civil and structural engineering, and biomedical engineering. It is a critically important element in the design and development of almost all technologies and products in these areas, such as aircraft, automobiles, buildings, bridges, and medical implants and devices. Further, solid mechanics is a key enabler in the development of new technologies that address the major global challenges of our time in sustainability, renewable energy and health.
The first European Solid Mechanics Conference was held in Munich in 1991. This very successful conference initiated a tri-annual series with subsequent conferences held in Genova, Stockholm, Metz, Thessaloniki, Budapest, Lisbon, Graz, Madrid and Bologna. The 11th European Solid Mechanics Conference will take place at the National University of Ireland Galway, in the city of Galway, Ireland.
We have assembled an outstanding group of invited lecturers for the conference, covering the General Lecture and five Plenary Lectures.
The conference is organised in terms of the following eight themes:
Mechanics of Materials
Biomechanics and Medical Implants
Dynamics, Waves and Metamaterials
Multiphysics and Multiscale Problems
There is a General Session for each theme and over fifty Mini-Symposia that cover a range of specialised topics, grouped under each theme.
We warmly welcome you to the wonderful city of Galway for what promises to be a very exciting and stimulating event.

Women in STEM
We are delighted to announce the Women in STEM Conference Support Awards, which will take the form a conference fee waiver for female researchers in the Young Researcher category. We will be able to offer a limited number of these awards. For the purposes of this conference, a "Young Researcher" is a PhD student or a PhD graduate with up to and including 3 years post-doc experience.
Eligible female researchers can apply for the Women in STEM Conference Support Awards when submitting their abstracts through the abstract submission portal. Successful applicants will be informed after the abstract review process.
Expert panel discussion with distinguished participants on the future of solid mechanics and the future development of the solid mechanics community.
Postdoc and PhD student networking and mentorship session
Opportunity for postdocs and PhD students to meet experts in their area and get advice on how best to progress their careers.
