international conference “Physical Mesomechanics. Materials with Multilevel Hierarchical Structure and Intelligent Manufacturing Technology”

Tomsk, Russia


The International Conference “Physical Mesomechanics. Materials with Multilevel Hierarchical Structure and Intelligent Manufacturing Technology” is held in the frame of the International Interdisciplinary Symposium “Hierarchical Materials: Development and Applications for New Technologies and Reliable Structures" and will take place from 6 to 10 September 2021 in Tomsk.

First announcement

Plenary program
The international conference Advanced Materials with a Hierarchical Structure for New Technologies and Reliable Structures continues the series of conferences on physical mesomechanics held since 1996 at the initiative of Academician Victor Panin, the founder and first director of the Institute of Strength Physics and Materials Science SB RAS.
Now it is known that the hierarchical self-organization of multilevel processes largely determines the nonlinear behavior of complex condensed systems under various external loads (mechanical, thermal, electromagnetic, radiation, etc.). The laws of this self-organization are studied by the physical mesomechanics of materials, which develops at the interface between the mechanics of heterogeneous materials, the physics of generation and self-organization of deformation defects, and physical materials science. Particular attention is paid to verifying the general self-organization mechanisms of multilevel nonlinear processes in complex condensed systems of animate and inanimate nature.
Modern materials science is in search of fundamentally new approaches to the creation of materials for advanced production technologies, space and deep space exploration, electronics, nuclear power engineering, oil and gas production, medicine, transport, etc. The development strategy of materials science is based on a multilevel and multidisciplinary approach that is gaining more and more relevance. The new paradigm provides the basis for the methodology of mechanics, physics, chemistry, computer science, life sciences, geological sciences, etc. Modern practical and engineering applications require taking into account the multilevel hierarchical organization of materials, structures, media, and systems of various nature
Today it is becoming general practice to design and develop advanced materials with particular attention to the multilevel and hierarchically organized internal structure of materials. Actually, the material should be considered as a structural level of a part or a structure. This allows the most efficient use of new opportunities offered by advanced production technologies.
In 2015, the Government of the Russian Federation launched a priority fundamental research program on advanced materials for new technologies and reliable structures. The purpose of this conference is, among other things, to discuss current problems, approaches, goals, and results in this area.
Information on 2020 Physical Mesomechanics Conference is available at ispms.ru/en/ispmsconf/12/.

Key Topics

Physical mesomechanics of heterogeneous materials;
Development of advanced structural and functional materials;
Advanced technologies for the synthesis of low-dimensional and bulk materials;
Physics of plasticity and strength of materials;
Modeling and computer-aided design.
The conference will provide a platform for a young scientists school involving the participation of students, postgraduates, and young scientists. Among the guests will be representatives of the real economy and equipment manufacturers.

Presentation of reports

The conference will consist of plenary sessions, oral and poster sessions. Plenary sessions will include invited reports (30 min + discussion). Oral presentations will be limited to 15 min (computer projectors available).
Poster presentations should be submitted in electronic form (60×80 cm size), in PDF format. The posters will be printed by the organizing committee. During the poster session, the authors of poster reports will have an opportunity to briefly present their work. The presentations should be short (no more than 3 slides) and prepared in advance.

German-Russian Workshop «Russia and Germany in Tribology and Materials Science»

In 2021, a number of cultural, scientific, and educational events are being implemented in the Russian Federation within the framework of a large-scale intergovernmental project “The Year of Germany in Russia”.

These scientific and educational events include the German-Russian seminar "Russia and Germany in Tribology and Materials Science".

This one-day Workshop is held on September 10 as a part of the International Conference “Physical Mesomechanics. Materials with a multilevel hierarchically organized structure and intelligent manufacturing technologies”.

The Workshop is organized by Technical University of Berlin (TU Berlin) and Institute of Strength Physics and Materials Science SB RAS (ISPMS SB RAS). The Workshop will be held at the Conference venue.

The main topics of the Workshop are:
  • History of Science, especially in Germany and Russia
  • Results and practical aspects of current Russian-German research collaborations in the fields of tribology, materials science, and solid-state physics
  • Russian-German cooperation projects in higher education in Physics and Engineering

We cordially invite you to take part in this Workshop as an audience or speaker. Participation in the Workshop is free of charge.

The Working language of the workshop is English.

If you are interested in participating with a presentation or short communication, please submit the title and short abstract to the organizing committee of the Conference (meso21@ispms.ru), or Workshop organizers from TU Berlin (j.starcevic@tu-berlin.de).
