9th INTERNATIONAL CONGRESS OF THE CROATIAN SOCIETY OF MECHANICS


September 18 – 22, 2018

CONGRESS CENTER OF THE RADISSON BLU HOTEL SPLIT, CROATIA

Welcome to Split

After the successful 8th International Conference of the Croatian Society of Mechanics held in Opatija, it’s our honour and privilege to invite you to participate in the 9th ICCSM. The conference will take place in Split, from the 18th to the 22nd September 2018.

We hope to match the scientific level of our previous eight international conferences (Pula 1994, Supetar 1997, Cavtat 2000, Bizovac 2003, Trogir 2006, Dubrovnik 2009, Zadar 2012, Opatija 2015) with attractive key notes and conference topics. Scientific topics from the field of mechanics, such as multiscale methods, multiphysics, damage, fatigue, fracture, plasticity, composite materials, fluids, beam structures, experimental methods, numerical modelling, dynamics, etc. will give an overview of the current undergoing researches.
The city Split, a gem of the Mediterranean, attracts visitors with its rich historic and cultural heritage. Being a UNESCO HERITAGE SITE it meets the expectations of everybody, regardless of their age, ethnic, cultural and social backgrounds.

The conference venue is the hotel RADISSON BLU RESORT SPLIT situated at the sea shore, featuring a private beach, conformable rooms and good conference facilities. The hotel is well connected to the historical city centre (public bus, 35 min walk or 7 min by car) and its main attractions such as the medieval city centre with the Roman Diocletian’s Palace, restaurants, bars and numerous touristic and historical sites. All of these are pleasant social incentives to the scientific aspect of the Congress.

On behalf of the organizing Committee, we welcome you to Split, wishing you a unique scientific and cultural experience

PREFERED CONGRESS HOTEL – THE VENUE OF THE CONGRESS: RADISSON BLU RESORT SPLIT

 

Set against 2 stunning backdrops—the Adriatic Sea and the beautiful Dalmatian mountains—the Radisson Blu Resort, Split, presents a seemingly unlimited feast of views and outdoor activities. As one of Croatia’s most popular cities and home to an international business scene, Split provides an array of activities and opportunities for business and leisure travelers alike.

Located on the waterfront of a tranquil bay in the Adriatic Sea, and only 3 kilometers from the city center, the resort sits amid a wealth of cultural attractions, great shopping and a bustling nightlife. This is the perfect location to combine relaxing beach days with Split’s great cultural experiences. Enjoy a tour of the impressive Diocletian’s Palace, explore Split’s Old Town and its great shopping opportunities, or catch a ferry from the city center to one of the many Croatian islands.

Just a few steps from the resort entrance is a serene pebble beach, where you can savor the sun and ocean breeze, cool down in the ocean and enjoy the beach bars along the coast.
