Welcome to the EMI2011 Conference

Thank you for attending the Engineering Mechanics Institute 2011 at Northeastern University. This conference provides a major forum for the exchange of ideas and discussion of recent developments in all fields of mechanics and materials. The technical sessions and symposia on fundamentals, tools and applications serve to highlight and promote educational needs, emerging thrusts, novel techniques, and innovative applications in areas that span across many engineering disciplines. The conference is comprised of six keynote lectures and 420 technical presentations, 3 student competitions, EMI committee meetings, and industry exhibitions. A broad spectrum of topics will be covered, including applied earthquake engineering, fundamental mechanics of biological materials, and theories that combine nonlinear mechanics and the chemistry of molecular mixtures. In addition, one shortcourse will be held on June 1 in conjunction with the conference, entitled “Identification and Diagnostics in Structural Engineering”. A workshop to promote diversity and gender balance of prospective faculty in engineering mechanics will also be held before the conference. We hope that you enjoy the many opportunities this conference has to offer.
