CONTACT MECHANICS INTERNATIONAL SYMPOSIUM 2020

The first Contact Mechanics International Symposium (CMIS) took place in Lausanne in 1992. For the 10th edition of CMIS we are happy to welcome you back in Switzerland, in the beautiful region of Lavaux, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Taking place over three days, May 13-15, 2020, the Symposium will be hosted in the Prealpina hotel in the city of Chexbres, a short distance from Lausanne.  CMIS started from the desire to gather researchers interested in a broad range of topics in theoretical, computational and experimental contact mechanics. The 10th edition of CMIS will pursue this tradition of interdisciplinary research and foster intense discussions and exchanges by assembling a group of leading researchers in a pristine location. During these three days, we will discuss a wide panorama of topics in the area of contact mechanics with the objective to reinforce interactions and collaborations between the various communities.
 

CMIS OBJECTIVES

Following the tradition of CMIS symposia, the aim of this symposium is to gather researchers from the mathematical and engineering communities working on various aspects of contact mechanics, using theoretical, experimental and computational approaches.

CONFERENCE TOPICS

The congress addresses a wide panorama of topics in the area of contact mechanics in order to reinforce interactions and collaborations between various communities:

• Models, friction laws; wear; tribological modeling; cohesive zone models; rolling;
• Emerging computational approaches: methods, algorithms and numerical analysis ;
• Mathematical analysis ;
• Dynamic contact problems, instabilities ;
• Nano and micromechanics of contact and multiscale approaches ;
• Multiphysics and thermomechanical coupling ;
• Granular materials and rigid bodies ;
• Contact modeling in mechanical and civil engineering, biomechanics and geomechanics.

HISTORY

The locations of CMIS have always been selected with the idea of providing a quiet and private environment to encourage scientific discussions among the participants. Following such tradition, CMIS 2020 will be held at the Prealpina hotel, in Chexbres, in the Lavaux region, which is a short distance from Lausanne, Switzerland. The dates are May 13-15, 2020.

ABSTRACT GUIDELINES

Instructions for author: writing an abstract to be submitted to CMIS2020

First A. Author, Presenting Author and Third B.C. Author

Write affiliation here. If you need more than one affiliation use numbering.

This document will help you prepare your abstract (maximum 1 page, including figure an references) for CMIS2020. We encourage you to use this template to write your abstract as it contains all the necessary styles and page set-up and is ready to use.

Avoid individual formatting of headings and text as much as possible. Use the paragraph styles as defined in this document to format the layout of your abstract. The abstract may contain no more than one figure (a single figure spans the entire width, see for example Figure 1, composed of two sub-figures). You may include equations and references.

 

(a) (b)

Figure 1: Soft-EHL problem: (a) mesh in undeformed configuration, (b) σzz component of the Cauchy stress tensor in the deformed configuration.

Set-up: Font is Times New Roman. Use A4 paper with top and bottom margins of 2.54 cm (1 inch) and left and right margins of 3.17 cm (1.25 inches). Do not include page numbers nor page header/footer. Footnotes are not allowed.

Title: The title is typed in bold, 14pt, centered. Do not capitalize words in the title, except the first word of the title or proper nouns. Between title and authors list there is a blank line.

Authors: The authors are listed in one paragraph in 12pt, centered. Put first name, initials and last name (see example above). Use super-scripted numbering if authors have a different affiliation.

Affiliation: Affiliation and e-mail address are in 10pt, italic, centered. Different affiliations are put in separate paragraphs and numbered with the super-scripted numbers used in the authors list. If no e-mail address is available, add a fax-number.

Body text: The remainder of the abstract is made of paragraphs, (no numbered   sections) justified at both left and right margins and in 11pt.

References: numbered as [1], [2, 3], [1-3] and listed in numerical order following the text body. Work accepted for publication should be referred as “in press”. References to  unpublished data cannot be cited. Reference list is in 10pt.
