Dear Colleague:
You are cordially invited to attend a special Workshop on Probing the Limits of Strength, which will be held at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory on August 10-12, 2009. This workshop aims to bring together researchers with an interest in experimental and theoretical studies of the fundamental limits of strength in materials. The workshop will include a strong lineup of national and international speakers on advanced mechanical testing techniques and computational materials science of materials deformation at the elastic limit.

The workshop begins with an opening reception in the evening of August 10th, then proceeds to two half-day seminar sessions and a poster session at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBL) on August 11th, and concludes with a half-day seminar session at LBL on August 12th. The opening reception, lunch at LBL on August 11th and 12th, and workshop banquet on August 11th are included with the workshop's registration fee. We will also provide transportation from the workshop hotel to LBL.
