Thematic session in ICTAM 2024

Dear Colleagues,

The 26th International Congress of Theoretical and Applied Mechanics (ICTAM2024) will be held in Daegu, Korea, August 25-30, 2024. As co-chairs of the Thematic Session on “Metamaterials architectured materials and topology optimization”, it is our pleasure to encourage researchers working in the general field of metamaterials design, be it with intuitive, systematic or learning approaches, to submit their work to the session.

We write to encourage you to submit an abstract, to be presented in either a Lecture Session (occupying a 20-minute slot, including discussion) or a Short Talk with Poster Session (a 5-minute presentation slot plus the opportunity to display a poster). The deadline for submission is December 31, 2023, but you are highly encouraged to submit in good time prior to that final deadline. Your submission should be prepared according to the instructions given on the website

Whereas we are the organizers of the session, the final decision on whether a contribution is accepted rests with the International Papers Committee (IPC) of IUTAM. They will meet in March 2024 to make their decisions. We will provide input to the IPC concerning all contributions submitted to our Thematic Session, but the final decision rests with them.

We very much hope that you will indeed submit an abstract to the Congress, so that the Thematic Session on “Metamaterials architectured materials and topology optimization” can truly represent the state-of-the-art in this exciting field.

Yours sincerely,

Thematic Session Co-chairs:

Wei Chen, Northwestern University (USA)

Ole Sigmund, Technical University of Denmark (Denmark)
