In the past years we have organized the following international workshops and seminars
Printable, Flexible and Wearable Electronic Materials and Mechanics
The purpose of the symposium is to present the state-of-the-art of the characterization, modification and modeling of the printable, flexible and wearable electronic materials and their mechanical properties required for future wearable devices to improve the understanding of such materials towards to the industrial and commercialization. The symposium is associated with Japan Society for the Promotion of Science (JSPS) Core-to-Core Program “International Networking for Sensing Device Development for Healthier, Safer and Securer Society (SANKEN)”; and sponsored by the NTNU Likestilling Startpakker and the NTNU Stjerneprogrammet.
A delegation from Japan and experts from Belgium, UK, Norwegian industry and NTNU attended the symposium. The symposium program
20th European Conference on Fracture (ECF20)
Structural integrity of all engineered structures is of vital importance to prevent catastrophic failure and ensure continuous profitable operation. It is no doubt that the high quality education and research in the field of fracture mechanics and fatigue at IVT has contributed to a great extent to the structural integrity of the offshore structures and pipelines. Because of this, Norway was voted by the Council of European Structural Integrity Society (ESIS) in 2010 and given the honor to hold the 20th European Conference on Fracture (ECF20) at NTNU, the first week of July 2014. It is the first time for Norway to hold this kind of conference!
We received more than 700 abstracts for the ECF20!
