Welcome from the Chairs

International Conferences on Experimental Mechanics have a long tradition (1959 Delft, 1962 Paris, 1966 Berlin, 1970 Cambridge, 1974 Udine, 1978 Munich, 1982 Haifa, 1986 Amsterdam, 1990 Copenhagen, 1994 Lisbon, 1998 Oxford, 2004 Bari, 2007 Aleksandropoulis, 2010 Poiters, 2012 Porto, 2014 Cambridge, 2016 Rhodes, 2018 Brussels). The Conferences are organizing under the auspices of the European Society for Experimental Mechanics (EuraSEM).

ICEM brings together internationally recognized experts and young researchers in an effort to exchange ideas in different topics having the common link „Experimental Mechanics“. ICEM acts also as a platform for establishing connections between different research teams that are trying to build and develop future scientific collaboration.

ICEM19, the nineteenth International Conference on Experimental Mechanics will be held on July 5-9, 2020 in Kraków, for the first time in Poland. The Conference will be focused on experimental and measuring techniques for thorough study of the mechanical properties of different materials, engineering structures and systems which are necessary to create the physical bases and provide verification of analytical or numerical methods in engineering design.

Besides of the scientific program, it will be an opportunity to explore and discover the city of Kraków, the former capital of Poland. Kraków is one of the most beautiful Polish cities with a tradition dating back over 1000 years. Everyone who was at least once in this city will not forget the impression left by the local atmosphere of the old castle walls, the Wawel hill with the dragon's cave, stretching just above the lazily flowing Vistula River, a charming Sukiennice market with a beautiful St. Mary's Church and plenty of greenery. It is difficult to talk about the monuments of Kraków, because almost the whole city is one big monument, worth admiring during walks.

On behalf of the Organizing Committee and the EuraSEM we have a great pleasure to cordially invite the eminent scientists as well as young researchers and students to attend the ICEM19 in Kraków.

EURASEM

European Society for Experimental Mechanics

DETAILS

The Stress Analysis Group of the Institute of Physics was established in the UK in 1946 for the purpose of providing a means of sharing information on research and developments in the field of experimental stress analysis and related topics. In 1959, with the help of The Netherlands Organisation for Applied Scientific Research (TNO) and with the active cooperation of organisations in France, Germany (see footnote, Table 1) and Switzerland, the Group organised the Delft international conference. Following a discussion amongst the conference organisers, a meeting of national representatives was convened in Düsseldorf by Professor H. Fessler, UK, for the purpose of confirming the venue for the next conference and setting up an organising body for the conference series. A further meeting was held during the Paris conference in 1962 and at the next conference (Berlin, 1966) a formal constitution document was agreed for the Permanent Committee for Stress Analysis (PCSA), comprising representatives from twelve European countries and Israel. The modus operandi was that the PCSA should choose the venue for the four yearly conference. The appropriate body in the host country then took on responsibility for all aspects of the conference including publicity, organisation, selection of papers and publishing of the proceedings volume. The Chairman of the organising body became the Chairman of the PCSA with the responsibility of confirming and maintaining membership of the Permanent Committee, communicating with members and convening the next PCSA meeting at the forthcoming conference. The Permanent Committee could meet between conferences, at the request of the current chairman, for the purpose of offering comments and suggestions to the organisers. It has to be said that, by and large, the working of this scheme has been entirely satisfactory.
Some constitutional changes and innovations have been made over the years.

At the 1974 meeting of the PCSA in Udine an “information exchange” with the American Society of Experimental Stress Analysis (SESA) was agreed and that body played a valuable supporting role in the Munich conference (1978) and in all subsequent conferences. Some constitutional changes were made in 1982 at the Haifa meeting but the modus operandi was not affected. At the Amsterdam meeting (1986) the objectives and interests of IMEKO (the International Measurement Confederation) were outlined to the Permanent Committee; it was also agreed that the title of the committee should not be changed but that the conference should be known in future as the International Conference on Experimental Mechanics, the ICEM. The Japanese Society of Mechanical Engineers (JSME) was welcomed as co-sponsor of the Copenhagen conference (1990) and has made a greatly appreciated contribution to the conferences since then. Also at the 1990 PCSA meeting, it was agreed that the committee name should be changed to the European Permanent Committee for Experimental Mechanics (EPCEM).

Most recently, proposals for a new constitution, prepared by a EPCEM Working Group, were debated at length at the Oxford meeting of the committee in 1998. The proposals were eventually approved with agreed amendments. From the date of the revised constitution (August 1998), in which the objectives of the committee and the responsibilities of its chairman were clarified, the EPCEM became known as the European Association for Experimental Mechanics (EURASEM). The conference title and the basic modus operandi remained unchanged.

In July 2007, the Permanent Committee of EURASEM agreed to create a new society based on the previous organisation and composed of individuals to organise and strengthen the European Experimental Community. It has been decided to proceed to the dissolution of EURASEM at the Permanent Committee Meeting of March 2008 and to propose a new Constitution to launch a new organisation called EuraSEM. EuraSEM is a new organisation, building on the past and preparing for the future, therefore EuraSEM wishes to acknowledge the important role of those who laid the foundations of EURASEM and worked for the achievement of its objectives.

During the Permanent Council meeting in Lausanne, Switzerland on March 14, 2008 it was decided to launch a new society namely ‘The European Society for experimental Mechanics’ keeping the same acronym ‘EuraSEM’.

Sponsors and Partners

It is our pleasure to invite you to the ICEM 2020 - the 19th International Conference on Experimental Mechanics, which will be held 5 - 9.07.2020 in Kraków, Poland and traditionally accompanied with the exhibition.

Appreciating the importance of the industrial sector in the development of technical ideas and technological progress, we are pleased to invite companies to participate in the Conference and present their own achievements. Of particular importance will be the presentation of a scientific lecture covering the company's own research issues.

Companies are invited to take part in the commercial exhibition or support the conference as sponsors. The exhibition will be located in the common lunch/coffee/poster area what will ensure a good exposure of the company.

The Conference provides a great opportunity to network open-minded organizations both scientists and industry, operating in the mechanical sector. It is our ambition to provide you the chance to find collaborators, share experiences, listen to new ideas and discuss the latest trends in this field.

As well as gaining new knowledge and international contacts, we also hope you will enjoy the beauty of the Royal City Krakow, with a strong reputation as one of the most attractive destinations in Europe, well known for its historical sites, a mix of culture, shopping, dining, music, heritage, and leisure.

Details of the various sponsorship and exhibition opportunities are presented in the Exhibitor and Sponsorship BOOKING FORM.
