'Failure of Small Scale Structures' Symposium Abstract Deadline This Friday, July 31st

Dear Colleague:

The final abstract deadline is this Friday July 31st for the 'Failure of Small-Scale Structures' Symposium at the TMS Annual Meeting in Seattle (February 14-18, 2010). This symposia will focus on failures in small scale structures (flexible and semiconductor electronic systems, actuators, resonating cantilever, biological systems, fuel cells, MEMS devices, etc) and will discuss combinations of possible failure mechanisms. Possible mechanisms could include, but are not limited to: electromigration, diffusion, crack formation and propagation, oxidation, corrosion, fatigue (thermal, corrosion, cyclic), creep, delamination, wear etc. Anticipated topics include: fracture and deformation of small-scale biological systems, nanowires/nanotubes, thin films and film structures, microlectronics, MEMS, micro pillars, etc.

Invited speakers to include: Markus Buehler (MIT), Bob Keller (NIST), Jianyu Huang (Sandia National Labs), Xiao-Yan Gong (Medical Implant Mechanics), William Nix (Stanford), Daniel Gianola (U. Penn), Julia Greer (Cal Tech), Ahmed-Amine Benzerga(Texax A&M), Mike Dugger (Sandia National Labs), Chung-Souk Han (North Dakota State), Gerhard Dehm (MU-Leoben), Michael Uchic (Air Force Research Labs), and Johann Michler (EMPA).
