RAM3: 2nd International Meeting of Young Researchers

RAM3: Recent Advances in Mechanics and Mathematics of Materials
2nd International Meeting of Young Researchers
Rome, 18-20 November 2019 - Faculty of Civil and Industrial Engineering

The Workshop RAM3 brings together young and distinguished scientists working at the intersection between mechanics and mathematics, for a three days event in Rome. The main focus of the workshop is on solid mechanics and its applications to material modelling, structural theories and multiphysics coupling. During the workshop four keynote lectures will be delivered by prominent researchers to inspire the young attendees with novel research topics and new challenges. By gathering together young scientists from all the world, the workshop intends to foster new ideas and promote new collaborations...

Executive Committee

Past Members of the Executive Committee

Lorenzo Bardella, Pasquale Vena, Roberta Massabò, Luca Deseri, Alberto Corigliano, Gianpietro Del Piero

Goal of the group

The goal of the group is to provide a forum for researchers working in the field of materials. The group organizes and encourages initiatives to favour exchange of experiences, discussion, and collaboration of researchers working in different cultural areas. The group annual meetings, GMA conferences, are organized in order to favour participation and discussion.
