The first Contact Mechanics International Symposium (CMIS) took place in Lausanne in 1992. The 10th edition of CMIS was initially planned in May 2020, in Switzerland, in the beautiful region of Lavaux.
Due to COVID, it is now scheduled from 23rd to 25th May 2022. The program and details will be posted soon.
CMIS started from the desire to gather researchers interested in a broad range of topics in theoretical, computational and experimental contact mechanics. The 10th edition of CMIS will pursue this tradition of interdisciplinary research and foster intense discussions and exchanges by assembling a group of leading researchers in a pristine location. During these three days, we will discuss a wide panorama of topics in the area of contact mechanics with the objective to reinforce interactions and collaborations between the various communities.
