The executive organizing committee for the 2019 EMI/G-I specialty conference to be held in Pasadena, CA on June 18-21, is pleased to invite you to submit proposals for mini-symposia that are thematically aligned with one or more of the conference’s ten technical tracks:

1.       Computational Mechanics 
2.       Multiscale and Multiphysics 
3.       Geomechanics and Geomaterials 
4.       Probabilistic Mechanics and SHM 
5.       Multihazards 
6.       Biomaterials and bio-inspired engineering 
7.       Flow and Phase transitions
8.       Special Topics
9.       Damage, bifurcation, and fracture 
10.   Mechanics of Materials and Material Science

The technical tracks are endowed with track chairs, who are leaders in the field, and will help solicit and select mini-symposia. 

We expect that each mini-symposium will contain 10-15 technical presentations to support 2-3 parallel sessions. Mini-symposium proposals should consist of a brief (250 words) abstract, a list of five possible presentation topics, and a list of five potential contributors. 

Mini-Symposia is now closed. We have 105 accepted!

A list of the accepted Mini-Symposia can be found HERE!

If you require additional assistance please email us at  

We look forward to your contributions and to seeing you in Pasadena next June.

Abstract submission is now open! Submit abstract HERE!
