The Organizing Committee is looking forward to welcoming you at the 11th International Workshop on Bifurcation and Degradation in Geomechanics – IWBDG2017.
After the last highly successful meeting of IWBDG in May 2014 at the Polytechnic University of Hong Kong, this year’s workshop will take place in Cyprus in May 2017.
The Organizing Committee hopes to make this workshop a memorable event, by bringing together renowned international scientists on a number of topics, promoting scientific discussions, encouraging future collaborations and integrating in the scientific program a rich program of social activities.
In accordance with the workshop’s objective to promote insight in bifurcation and degradation in geomaterials, scientists are invited to present recent advances in instabilities, localized and diffuse failure, multiscale, multiphysics, micromechanical modeling and other related topics. A major goal is also to promote the link between theoretical and applied mechanics with engineering applications in traditional and in emerging fields, such as geomechanics for the Energy and the Environment. The meeting encourages, in particular, the participation of Young Researchers at the doctoral and post-doctoral levels by applying moderate registration fees.
