Bio | CV | Publications

This major symposium is in honor of the distinguished work and lifetime achievements of Prof. Elias C. Aifantis. Professor Aifantis is a well-known figure for his deep impact in multiscale material mechanics and multiphysics processes, especially in their application for developing sustainable new technologies. He is author of almost 600 scientific papers. Throughout his career, his activity has impacted various fields, such as:
  • Spatio-Temporal Instabilities in Deformation and Fracture
  • Fracture Instabilities in Novel Materials and Processes
  • Degradation and Instabilities in Geomaterials with Application to Hazard Mitigation
  • Stress-assisted diffusion theories for hydrogen embrittlement and stress corrosion cracking
  • Flow through double porosity media theories with applications to consolidation and subsidence in geomaterials
  • Relocation of Maxwell's line and the derivation of transition, reversal and periodic solutions for fluid interfaces.
  • First gradient plasticity theory to predict the thickness of shear bands and eliminate the mesh-size dependence of FE calculations in the strain softening regime
  • Nanostructured materials; nanomechanics; dislocation patterning and material instabilities.
  • Gradient elasticity (GradEla) model to eliminate singularities from dislocation lines and crack tips
The symposium is organized on the occasion of his 2 anniversaries in the same year: His age anniversary (he becomes 65 in October 2015) and scientific anniversary (in 2015 he reaches 40 years of continuous scientific contributions.

Reflecting this rich activity, the symposium will feature plenary, keynote and invited lectures on multiscale material mechanics and multiphysics processes with applications ranging from modern engineering science and technology to biology and medicine. Contributed lectures from young scientists and engineers are encouraged in related interdisciplinary research fields. These may include metals and alloys, polymers and composites, geomaterials and biomaterials, as well as novel materials in thin film and bulk configurations for high energy density storage, optoelectronics and biomedicine applications. Advanced multiscale models on elasticity, viscoelasticity, plasticity, and damage, as well as coupled thermomechanical, chemomechanical, electromechanical, and optomechanical theories are desirable.

Contributed articles will be doubled peer-reviewed and will be published in Conference Official Proceedings having an ISBN and an ISSN number. Selected contributed articles will also be published in the Journal of Mechanical Behavior of Materials and other ISI Mechanics of Biomaterials/Biomaterials Journals.

An inspiring event with two Nobel Prize Laureates will serve as the "Curtain-Opening" event of the Summit (Sunday afternoon/evening, 4 October 2015).

Prof. Dan Shechtman, 2011 Nobel Laureate in Chemistry, will present and interact on the topic "Technological Entrepreneurship - Key to Sustainable World Peace and Prosperity". Besides being the 2011 Nobel Laureate in Chemistry, Professor Shechtman is known as one of the Pioneers of Technological Start-up Revolution (Financial Times, 2012). It is an inspiring accounting on his experience on the role of technological entrepreneurship on the sustainable world peace and prosperity with rich advises for success drawn from successful entrepreneurs he helped train.

Prof. Ei-ichi Negishi, 2010 Nobel Prize in Chemistry, will present and interact on the topic of the special role of metals at the service of organic life: How they help the synthesis of organic compounds in general and the role of metal-based reactions for an easier and efficient synthesis of complex organic compounds, in particular.
