6th Bohemian – Saxon – Silesian Mechanics-Colloquium

Dear Colleagues!

The 6th Bohemian-Saxon-Silesian Mechanics-Colloquium is organized by the Institute of Structural Engineering at the University of Zielona Góra on 22nd October 2005.

The aim of these scientific meetings isto bring together colleagues from the neighbouring regions of the Czech Republic, Germany and Poland, and to exchange ideas in the field of solid and fluid mechanics.

It is our great pleasure to sincerely invite you to the 6th Bohemian-Saxon-Silesian Mechanics-Colloquium and to present our Institute.

On behalf of the Institute
Mieczyslaw Kuczma, Director
