11th Bohemian-Saxon-Silesian Mechanics Colloquium in Dresden

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.

For the third time in the five year history you are invited to come to the colloquium in Dresden. As a premiere it is hosted by a chair of the “Faculty Transportation and Traffic Sciences”. Hence, the title of the colloquium is


but colleagues of the faculties Mechanical Engineering and Civil Engineering will give contributions, as well.

Regular guests of the colloquium will notice a change in the usual schedule: The famous Railway Operations Lab of the faculty that I would like to show all visitors can only be opened for us in the morning. Therefore the Lab tour must take place between two lecture sessions.
