2018 International Conference on Material Strength and Applied Mechanics (MSAM 2018)
Welcome to MSAM 2018!

International Conference on Material Strength and Applied Mechanics (MSAM 2018) will be held from April 10th to 13th, 2018 in Kitakyushu City, Japan. MSAM 2018 will represent a broad forum for all aspects of material strength to promote our fundamental understanding of material strength under different conditions. MSAM 2018 will also provide an opportunity to present and discuss recent analytical, experimental and computational results in the field of Applied Mechanics to bridge the gap between physical theory and its application to technology. The plenary session will include Keynote Speeches, Invited Speeches, Poster Presentations and Oral Presentations.

Kitakyushu city has developed around heavy and chemical industries since the government-run Yawata Steel Works began operations in 1901, and has underpinned industrial modernization and rapid economic growth in Japan. Recently, a concentration of industries has gathered in Kitakyushu that includes robotics, auto, and telecommunications industries. Kitakyushu has several beautiful areas such as the Kanmon Straits area, Mojiko Retro, and the Kokura Castle area.

On behalf of the Organizing Committee, we cordially invite you to attend MSAM 2018 and we look forward to meeting you all in Kitakyushu, Japan!
