The International Conference and Expo on Experimental Mechanics (ICEM18) welcomes all contributions related to the broad field of experimental mechanics. Many distinguished and world renowned experts volunteered to organize Special Sessions which focus on specific recent challenges. Please check first if your abstract fits in one (or more) of these special sessions. If not allocate it to one of the more general topics.
