Fourth International Conference on Damage Mechanics May 15 - 18, 2023 at Louisiana State University, Baton Rouge, Louisiana

ICDM4

ICDM4 WILL BE POSTPONED UNTIL MAY 15th - 18th, 2023

We had quite a few challenges and activities since January of 2020. A lot of uncertainty was involved during this period of time addressing both safety and instructional protocols/needs that were new to the academic world. We have adjusted to the new mode of operation with planning and addressing our educational and industrial needs. This was an evolution period for our mode of operations for all of us. We hope with the vaccines, we may be able to go back to our previous mode of operation in our daily life and in particular conducting face to face conferences.

After consultation with the Board members and prospective participants, we are postponing one more time, unfortunately, the Fourth International Conference on Damage Mechanics, ICDM4 will be held in Baton Rouge, Louisiana on May 15th - 18th of 2023. This action is to ensure normal professional and social interactions among the participants during this conference. We also expect by that time that international travel rules in the world will be normalized to pre COVID-19. Currently, the rules and precautions taken by many countries in Asia and Europe are too restrictive and impose constraints to their citizens who travel abroad upon their return to their home countries. We anticipate a big contingent to participate in this conference from China and France, among other countries. Obviously, these restrictions will deter many participants to attend the conference at this time.

The location for the 2023 event will be at Louisiana State University in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. We hope that this postponement does not prove to be inconvenient for you and/or your colleagues.

I would like to also extend an invitation for the participants to submit papers for the special issues in IJDM in conjunction with this conference that will be due in October 1st, 2022. Please note to submit one paper per conference participant(s).

We will keep you apprised of our revised plans as they develop in the near future. Thank you for your understanding and please be safe.

OBJECTIVES OF THE ICDM CONFERENCES SERIES
Since 1958, following the pioneering work of L. M. Kachanov, the theory of damage mechanics has in particular made significant progress and established itself capable of solving a wide range of engineering problems. To date, the damage mechanics is a clearly identified scientific discipline focused on studying the effect of various nano, micro and macro defects on the behavior of materials, bridging the gap between the well-established fields of continuum inelastic deformations and the classical fracture mechanics with growing macroscopic cracks. The main objective of the conferences series entitled the n-th International Conference on Damage Mechanics (ICDMn) is to bring together leading educators, researchers, scientists, engineers and other practitioners discussing and exchanging ideas on recent advances in the field of damage mechanics. On the foundation of the International Journal of Damage Mechanics (IJDM), this conference series, held every three years, aims to become the premier international forum on damage mechanics research dissemination.

ICDM1 took place in Belgrade, Serbia (June 25-27th, 2012), ICDM2  took place in Troyes, France (July 8-11th, 2015) and ICDM3 was held at Tongji University, Shanghai, China (July 4-6th, 2018). All three of them attracted many researchers and engineers from nearly 50 countries.

The Fourth International Conference on Damage Mechanics (ICDM4) will be held at Louisiana State University, Baton Rouge, Louisiana, USA on Mon, May 16 - Wed, May 18, 2022. This event will be a forum to present the newest findings and to depict the future development in damage and failure mechanics.
