Milano will have the privilege of hosting the 25th International Congress of Theoretical and Applied Mechanics (25th ICTAM) from 22 to 27 August 2021. This edition will follow the 24th ICTAM held in Montreal in August 2016.
The 25th ICTAM was initially scheduled from 23 to 28 August 2020. Due to the covid-19 pandemia, the Organizing Committee, together with the Executive Congress Committee and the President of IUTAM, decided to postpone this important event of one year. This decision was considered the most reasonable and the only option available in order to organize an ICTAM Congress in line with the tradition.
ICTAM congresses are organized under the auspices of the International Union of Theoretical and Applied Mechanics (IUTAM) and traditionally gather every four years the mechanics community from around the world. These are unique occasions to discuss of science, strengthen relationships, create new contacts and gain a direct experience of the new progresses in mechanics and of the continuously growing field of applications of this ever-green discipline.
The 25th ICTAM will be hosted in the Milano Congressi (MiCo) center, located nearby the brand new neighborhood of Milano called CityLife, which comprises a large shopping district, three new tall buildings designed by the renowned archistars Zaha Hadid, Arata Isozaki and Daniel Libeskind, a public park and several luxury residential buildings. MiCo is not far from the town center and is optimally served by underground and surface public transports. Numerous hotel rooms and dormitories have been secured within walking distance or few minutes public transport from MiCo.
Participation in the 25th ICTAM will allow you to enjoy the high quality scientific program that has already been setup by the International Congress Committee and to strengthen ties with old friends and colleagues, while establishing new connections for your research. Milano will offer you the richness of an invaluable historical heritage, famous nightlife and shopping and a great opportunity to explore the region around Milano with daily tours and the center-north of Italy with pre and post congress tours. You will have the possibility to reach world-wide known historical towns like Venice, Florence, Rome, wonderful sea-side villages like Le cinque Terre and Portofino, and natural wonders like Alpine Monte Bianco or Monte Rosa and famous lakes like Maggiore, Como and Garda.
The Organization of 25th ICTAM in Milano will be supported by AIMETA, the Italian Association of Theoretical and Applied Mechanics, in collaboration with Politecnico di Milano and Università di Pavia, which provide the highly experienced and motivated Local Organizing Committee. 25th ICTAM will also be a special Congress for Italy, since this will be the second time an ICTAM Congress will be organized in our Country, 60+1 years after the 10th ICTAM, held in Stresa in 1960.
On behalf of the Local Organizing Committee and of the IUTAM Congress Committee, I would like to let you have my warmest invitation to join us in Milano for the 25th ICTAM.
Mark your agenda today! We look forward to welcoming you in Milano from 22 to 27 August 2021.
