Dear Friends and Colleagues,

Together with Tevis Jacobs, Ju Li and Qian Yu, I'd like to invite you to submit an abstract to Symposium CM3: Mechanics and Tribology at the Nanoscale: In situ and In silico Investigations at the Spring MRS meeting in Phoenix, Arizona, from March 28-April 1, 2016.

Mechanical and tribological behavior at the nanoscale are often studied in isolation. Yet, insights into tribology require an understanding of elastic and inelastic deformation of the sub-surface material, while deformation experiments can rarely be carried out without consideration of interfacial phenomena occurring at contacts between components. In this symposium, we bring together experimentalists and theoreticians working on aspects of plasticity, hardness, fracture toughness, and fatigue, as well as contact, friction, adhesion, and wear, to encourage and nucleate interaction between these two fields.

Topics will include (but not be limited to) experimental and simulation investigations of deformation mechanisms in nanoscale geometries, elastic and inelastic deformation in nanoscale contact including the origins of friction and wear, and investigations on environmental effects on mechanical properties.

For more details on this symposium visit: http://www.mrs.org/spring-2016-call-for-papers-cm3/

Please submit your abstract at: http://www.mrs.org/spring-2016-abstract-submission/

Deadline for submission of abstracts is October 15.

Yours sincerely,
Lars Pastewka
