8th MPM Workshop 2014
Thursday and Friday, September 25-26, 2014
This workshop will feature presentations on theory and applications of the material point method (MPM) as a numerical method for solving problems in solid mechanics, simulating fracture and crack propagation, solving problems involving interfaces and contact, working on multi-scale and multi-physics problems, modeling of composite materials, and more. The workshop will include extended periods for members of the MPM community to discuss MPM issues and future development of MPM.
To be announced as submissions arrive. The following people are planning on attending (in alphabetical order):
We particularly encourage attendees from the growing international users of MPM.
Submit an Abstract or Plan to Attend
To assist in workshop planning, please send us an email with your interest in attending. A simple email is enough for now. If you have a title and abstract for a presentation, you can include it in the email or send it at a later date (abstract deadline is July 15, 2014). But please send "interest" email as soon as possible, rather then waiting until an abstract is ready.
Registration is expected to free (although you will be responsible for your own travel and accommodation costs). If possible, we will host a conference dinner on Thursday, September 25, 2014. If additional funds can be raised, they will be allocated first to support some costs of students attending the workshop.
