13th International Symposium on Advanced Science and Technology in Experimental Mechanics (13th ISEM'18)

Oct. 30-Nov. 2, 2018, Kaohsiung City, Taiwan (ROC)

Welcome !

This is the official homepage of the 13th International Symposium on Advanced Science and Technology in Experimental Mechanics.


The Symposium will take place at "85 Sky Tower Hotel" in Kaoshiung City, Taiwan, which is located on the center of Kaohsiung City. It takes about 15 minutes by bus or MRT from Kaohsiung International Airport Station. Further information regarding the venue for the meeting can be accessed at: https://www.85sky-tower.com/en

Scope and Topics 

Background and Aims

The Japanese Society for Experimental Mechanics (JSEM) was founded in 2001 by reorganizing the former Japan Society for Photoelasticity to extend its covering area of Experimental Mechanics not only to Solid Mechanics but also to various areas of Applied Mechanics such as Fluid Mechanics, Thermal Engineering, Medical Engineering, Biomechanics, Construction and Civil Engineering and so on. The first Symposium was successfully held in Sapporo, Japan (2006) to attain its main purpose of the new establishment. The Symposium was subsequently held in Osaka, Japan (2007), Tainan, Taiwan (2008), Niigata, Japan (2009), Kyoto, Japan (2010), Sendai/Kansai, Japan (2011), Taipei, Taiwan (2012), Sendai, Japan (2013), New Delhi, India (2014), Matsue, Japan (2015), Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam (2016) and Kanazawa City, Japan (2017). The present Symposium aims to promote an exchange of recent and advanced information among scientists and engineers in the wide field of Experimental Mechanics with special focus on Environmental, Medical and Welfare Engineering. The Symposium is also aimed particularly at promoting communication and collaboration between fundamental researchers and those engaged in the development of practical technology in respective areas of Experimental Mechanics.

Abstract and Paper Submission, Selection and Publication

Abstracts of 300-500 words in English should be submitted online at the Symposium website. The abstracts should contain the following:

  1. Title of paper.
  2. Five keywords to describe and categorize the work.
  3. Name, affiliation, and e-mail address of the author to whom subsequent correspondence should be directed.
  4. Names and affiliations of co-authors, if any.
  5. Background, objective, method, main findings and results.The abstracts will be used for preliminary screening and planning for the sessions. Accepted abstracts should be submitted in the form of full-length manuscripts for review. Final acceptance will be based on review of the manuscripts. A bound volume of the abstracts and a piece of CD-ROM proceedings of the full-length papers will be available at the Symposium. Authors are invited to submit their papers to Advanced Experimental Mechanics published by the Japanese Society for Experimental Mechanics.
