About the Conference
The series of Solid Mechanics Conferences have been organized by the
Institute of Fundamental Technological Research, Polish Academy of Sciences
(IFTR PAS) since 1953, when the first conference was held in Karpacz,
southern Poland. Initially, these conferences were of the summer school
type and concentrated on problems of elasticity, plasticity and structural mechanics.
Later, they became international conferences with considerable participation
of scientists from foreign countries, and with much wider scope covering actual active
research areas in solid mechanics. The conferences have maintained high scientific
standard and served as a forum for exchange of ideas and research information.
Traditionally a set of invited lectures have been presented at the Conferences by
outstanding researchers. The example of a list of foreign general lecturers is
