About the Conference

Researchers in mechanics, traditionally categorized as solid mechanics, fluid mechanics and computational mechanics, are today actively addressing a wide variety of problems ranging from new materials, energy, space, biology, food and health technologies, electronic devices, manufacturing, robotics and devices. In spite of numerous society level mechanics conferences across the globe which are often organized around traditional disciplinary boundaries (Solids, Fluids, Computation, Biomechanics, etc), so far there is no mechanics conference to bring different mechanics communities together to brainstorm and address various grand challenges.

The Conference is intended as the first global forum for the mechanics communities worldwide to discuss how mechanics can be used as an enabling tool to help address grand challenges of our time. Singapore’s geological location and culture offers a unique opportunity to start the intended international conference on mechanics for global challenges.
