Conference Announcement

    In 2018, Strength of Materials plans to publish relevant papers selected from the First International Conference on Material Strength and Applied Mechanics (MSAM 2018), which will be held from April 10th to 13th, 2018 in Kitakyushu City, Japan.

    MSAM 2018 will represent a broad forum for all aspects of material strength to promote the fundamental understanding of material strength under different conditions. MSAM 2018 will also provide an opportunity to present and discuss recent analytical, experimental and computational results in the field of applied mechanics to bridge the gap between physical theory and its application to technology.

    The conference is sponsored by the Society of Materials Science of Japan, Kyushu Institute of Technology, Oita University, Fukuoka University, and University of Ryukyus, Japan.

    The plenary session will include keynote speeches, invited speeches, poster presentations and oral presentations.
