19th Bohemian-Saxon-Silesian Mechanics Colloquium

BSSWrocław, 19th January 2013

The 19th Bohemian-Saxon-Silesian Mechanics-Colloquium is organized by the Institute of Materials Science and Technical Mechanics(Faculty of Mechanics) of the Wrocław University of Technology. It is a great pleasure for us to invite you to a presentation of our scientificprogram.

The aim of the “Bohemian-Saxon-Silesian Mechanics-Colloquium” is to bring together colleagues to exchange recent scientific results, to provide a forum for young researchers for first presentations and last not least to improve the personal understanding of all colleagues working in the wide field of mechanics of solids and fluids.

Since we live in the heart of Europe it seems to be a good idea to support the unification of neighbouring countries such as the provincesBohemia, Saxony and Lower Silesia from the Czech Republic, Germany and Poland.
