Prof. Yong Zhu at NCSU and myself are organizing MiniSymposium 328-Mechanics of Flexible, Stretchable and Bio-Integrated Electronics for the 19th U.S. National Congress on Theoretical and Applied Mechanics (USNC/TAM 2022), which will be held June 19-24, 2022 in Austin, TX. The new deadline for abstract submission is Jan. 31, 2022.

The synopsis of our MS 328 is included below. Please consider submitting an abstract or recommending your collaborators/students to submit an abstract to MS 328! Come to Austin to enjoy exciting science, Texas BBQ, and check out the new headquarter of Oracle and Tesla. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us at and/or Your support is highly appreciated!

Soft electronic systems based on silicon, metal, nanomaterials, 2D materials, polymers, composites, liquid metals and biomaterials are expected to disrupt many different fields that range from displays to wearables, from soft robots to energy conversion/storage systems. The fundamental challenge of the field is the co-engineering of softness, electrical properties, responsiveness and/or bio-integration in a single material or a system. Mechanics of materials, structures and interfaces are vital to solving such challenges. This symposium will highlight several successful and nascent approaches including but not limited to compliant structures and designs, origami and kirigami, nano- and 2D materials, soft functional materials (composites, organic semiconductors, hydrogels, liquid metals, etc.), strong or reversible bio-electronics adhesives, etc. This symposium will provide a venue for the convergent discussion of diverse aspects of the rapidly evolving field of soft electronics including mechanics, physics, materials, electronics, bio-integration, and device applications. The anticipated scope of this symposium will be very broad, from fundamental to applied researches.

List of possible topics of MS 328:

Thin-film mechanics, Fracture mechanics, Instabilities, Nanomechanics, Interfacial mechanics, Mechanical properties of materials, Mechanics of composites, Mechanics of soft matter, Origami and kirigami, Mechanics of self-healable materials, Mechanics in materials characterization, Mechanics in advanced manufacturing, Mechanics of soft electronic systems, Mechanics of biodegradable systems, Bio-electronics interface

Confirmed invited speakers of MS 328 are:

Prof. Wei Cai @ Stanford

Prof. Kevin Turner @ Penn

Prof. Michael Dickey @ NCSU

Prof. Xuanhe Zhao @ MIT
