• The Russian National Committee on Theoretical and Applied Mechanics is affiliated with the Russian Academy of Sciences and unites research workers from research institutions, universities and industrial enterprises of Russia, as well as individual scientists - citizens of Russia and b. USSR citizens working in the field of mechanics, with the aim of promoting the full development of mechanics.
  • ESIS is an international, non-profit, scientific organization setting itself the task of obtaining new knowledge in the field of deformable solid body mechanics and the dissemination of this knowledge in order to increase the safety of operation and performance of equipment, systems and structures. The goal of ESIS is to develop and expand knowledge in all aspects of structural integrity and disseminate this knowledge throughout the world.
  • The Russian Destruction Group was established in 2018 as one of the ESIS National Committees under the patronage of the Presidium of the Russian National Committee on Theoretical and Applied Mechanics .. In order to deepen international cooperation and expand Russian representation in international scientific organizations

Terms of participation in ECF23

Dear colleagues! Due to the limited budget for money transfers and the personal participation of meeting scientists in international events abroad, the organizing committee of ECF 23 invites the following participants from Russia.
It is proposed to prepare and send to the organizing committee a presentation in video format for presentation during the conference. Within the framework of the conference, a presentation of the program of reports will be organized without the possibility of discussion. The authors who presented papers at the conference will be offered the opportunity to publish an article in the Procedia Structural Integrity issue.
Participation in conferences of Russian owners includes full organizational remuneration. As an additional opportunity to combine a large number of organizational fees, it is possible to accept a report as a student report if there are students or graduate students among the representatives. Export can be paid after the official payment deadline.
Information about banks and payments through the possible payment of the registration fee will be sent additionally.
