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.
