Dear colleagues,

We are very pleased to announce the Symposium

Mechanics and Physics of Porous Solids: a Tribute to Pr. Olivier Coussy

to be held from April 18 to April 20, 2011. This 3-day symposium will take place in Ecole des Ponts ParisTech in Champs-sur-Marne (France), 20 minutes away from downtown Paris by train. All information can be found in the website : http://navier.enpc.fr/events/mpps2011

Since environmental engineering, petroleum geophysics, civil engineering, geotechnical engineering, biomechanics, food industry and so on, involve processes that pertain to both physical chemistry and solid mechanics, experts in each of those two fields interact regularly. However, the interface between those two fields is not often explored. This symposium aims at gathering scientists and industrials that either develop or utilize the concepts of the mechanics and physics of porous solids as envisioned by the late Pr. Coussy.

Presentations will be given by invited speakers but we invite participant to submit an abstract for a poster presentation. Please visit the website http://navier.enpc.fr/events/mpps2011 for registration and poster submission.

Furthermore find below the poster and the flyer of the symposium:

Don't hesitate to diffuse them widely to whom is concerned.

Best wishes

On behalf of the organizing committee

Hi, Sir! The authors don't need to submit the whole paper? Submitting abstract is OK?
