It is my pleasure to announce the forthcoming 6th International Symposium on Solid Mechanics – MecSol 2017, to be held in Joinville, Brazil, from 26th to 28th April, 2017.
MecSol is a biannual official conference of the Brazilian Association for Mechanical Sciences (ABCM) dedicated to the Solid Mechanics community. It was conceived as a forum to congregate high level researchers from Brazil and abroad to discuss ongoing work, exchange experiences and foster interinstitutional cooperation. Innovative developments in solid mechanics encompassing numerical, experimental or numerical-experimental approaches are in the scope of the event. As a further highlight, the organization of the 6th edition of the symposium in Joinville will provide an agreeable atmosphere to discuss technical matters in an attractive, cultural and friendly environment.
