Recent ISIMM Meetings

STAMM XX, Rome, September 5-9, 2016

The XX Symposium on Trend in Applications of Mathematics to Mechanics (STAMM) will be held at the Istituto Nazionale di Alta Matematica in Rome. Updated information can be found here

STAMM XIX, Poitiers, September 3-6, 2014

The XIX Symposium on Trend in Applications of Mathematics to Mechanics (STAMM) has been held in Poitiers, and has been attended by more than 60 participants, see

The scientific program included invited and contributed talks, and the lectures of Constantin Dafermos (as the awardee of the ISIMM prize 2014) and of Elisabetta Rocca and Stefan Neukamm (as two awardees ex-aequo of the junior ISIMM prize 2014). An account of these three conferences will soon appear in the ISIMM forum. Slides of most of the talks are available here and the proceedings of the symposium are also under preparation.

On the occasion of the STAMM the Executive Committee met, and we had a plenary assembly of the society open to all participants.

STAMM XVIII, Haifa, September 3-6, 2012

The STAMM meeting was held at the Faculty of Aerospace Engineering of the Technion, Israel Institute of Technology, Haifa, on September 3-6, 2012. The focus of the meeting has been mathematical modeling applied to a variety of number of problems originating from physics, engineering and other disciplines.
On September 1 there has been a special workshop celebrating Prof. Ingo Muller as the Winner of the ISIMM PRIZE 2012. The award was given in recognition of his outstanding contributions to mathematics and mechanics.

Below a list of some of the lectures delivered at the Symposium:

STAMM XVII, Berlin, 30 August - 2 September, 2010

The XVII International Symposium on Trends in Applications of Mathematics to Mechanics, organized by Prof. Alexander Mielke and Prof. Wolfgang H. Mueller, has been taken place in Berlin from August 30 to September 2, 2010. A special session in the symposium has been devoted to Professor Ericksen and his many research contributions.

Scientific program

The program of the workshop consists of invited lectures, short communications, and posters. It will be made available on the web at due time. Consistently with the aims of ISIMM, mathematical modelling will be at the focus. The formulation and analysis of problems issued from physics, engineering and other disciplines will be welcome. We encourage participants to submit abstracts. A (necessarily restricted) number of 15' communications will be selected among all submitted abstracts.


As there is a restriction on the number of participants, we invite you to register by May 31, 2008. The selection will be made by registration date only. Accepted participants will be notified by e-mail by June 15, 2008. Please note that a registration fee of 100.00 Euro is foreseen.
