18 and 19 November 2019: Advances in numerical modelling of adhesion and friction

Our MC members Nicola Pugno and Federico Bosia (both University of Trento, Italy) will organise this workshop  on November 18-19, 2019 in Trento (Italy).

The aim of the workshop is to provide an update on current theoretical and numerical modelling approaches in the field of adhesion and friction phenomena, especially in the context of biological systems and synthetic materials for bioinspired applications. Talks should focus on new methods and approaches adopted to model adhesion, friction and their interaction in different settings and their effects on various types of surfaces, including examples of practical systems. This workshop should provide the opportunity for ENBA participants from different backgrounds to interact and share knowledge on theoretical aspects of their work, including with a number of invited key experts of the field.

Deadline for abstract submission: September 30th, 2019

Selection of participants: October 10th, 2019
