Call Open for Symposia and Summer Schools proposals

The call for proposals for IUTAM Symposia and Summer Schools to be held in 2026 or 2027 has been extended.

The deadline for submissions is 13th May 2024

Symposia and Summer Schools are one of IUTAM’s major areas of activity in order to promote mechanics. As Representatives of Adhering and Affiliated Organizations of IUTAM please can you help to spread information about the present call for proposals? Your help in encouraging top researchers in your community to submit high-quality Symposia/Summer Schools proposals would be greatly appreciated.

There is a desire for IUTAM symposia and summer schools to promote new areas in the field of mechanics, or fields with high societal impact, and with an attendant high risk. IUTAM values Excellence and Diversity as supporting principles for pursuing the objectives of IUTAM and maintaining the highest standards in all its activities. IUTAM understands Diversity as the range of human differences, including but not limited to race, gender, age, subject of expertise and geographic representation. IUTAM encourages the chairs of Symposia and Summer schools to encourage a diverse participation.

Submit the proposal form to IUTAM Secretary General, Prof. Robert McMeeking: <> and use the subject line “Proposal for an IUTAM Symposium or Summer School”
