CfP: Indian Society of Theoretical & Applied Mechanics Conference @ IIT Bhubaneswar [Dec 9-12]: Submit by July 31

iit-bhubaneswar-2-164th Congress of the Indian Society of Theoretical and Applied Mechanics (An International Conference) will be held at IIT Bhubaneswar during December 9-12.


The Indian Society of Theoretical and Applied Mechanics (ISTAM) was established in 1955, with its headquarters at IIT, Kharagpur. ISTAM was formed by the think tanks of the post-independent India for providing a common platform to Scientists, Technologists, and Engineers to share and discuss current research work conducted by them individually or in groups and seek solutions to emerging problems of the society.
