Conference Objective

In recent decades it has been widely recognized that preventing of failure of engineering structures necessitates involvement of a large amount of expertise and, depending on the application, might require for a multi-disciplinary and multi-scale approach in terms of both, size and time. The series of the International Conference of Engineering Against Failure (ICEAF) aims to provide on a biennial basis a Forum to present relevant scientific and technological achievements and discuss with an audience of international experts.

The scope of the Conference is to attract interdisciplinary work dedicated to the design against and prevention of engineering failure. Works are expected to cover a number of different technological areas including Aeronautics, Construction, Automotive, Marine, Bioengineering and Medical Applications, Recycling, Manufacturing etc.

The scientific responsibility of the ICEAF VI Conference belongs to the Laboratory of Technology & Strength of Materials (LTSM), University of Patras.
The Conference is recommended by the Federation of European Materials Society (FEMS). You may find more informations here.
