3rd Announcement


News from ECF22

Over 600 abstracts has been accepted for ECF22, promising another successful ESIS event. All important topics Fracture Mechanics and Structural Integrity are covered, including number of mini-symposia, with many inspiring titles. Call for papers is now open, with an extended deadline, until 30th June. Proceedings will be published electronically, in a special edition of Procedia Structural Integrity and high quality papers, in their extended form, will be considered for publishing in special issues of ESIS associated WoS Journals, like “Engineering Frac­ture Mechanics”, “Engineering Failure Ana­ly­sis”, “International Journal of Fatigue” or “Theo­retical and Applied Fracture Mechanics”, as well DIVK own Journal "Structural Integrity and Life", indexed by SCOPUS and ESCI Thomson list. Plenary lecturers are carefully chosen to cover the most attractive topics nowadays. The introductory lecture by Prof. Jim Rice will focus on a topic which affects us all, so its importance can not be overestimated. Anyhow, Belgrade is not in a critical earthquakes region, so we can promise only theoretical considerations! Summer school is also ready to start, offering attractive topics and very attractive lecturers. We are proud to announce that Prof. Jim Rice will talk about J integral, on the occasion of the 50th anniversary of probably the most important paper in Fracture Mechanics history. We are working hard, together with ESIS officials, to get as many young researchers as possible. Therefore, two special actions (ESIS support for researchers and ESIS/Elsevier young scientist award) are well taken care of. There will be 35 supported researchers, as promised, and strong competition for the best paper presented by young scientists, which will end with the special plenary session on Wednesday afternoon. Also, for the first time the best paper in Weldment Fracture Mechanics will be awarded by Dr. Galip Buyukyildirim, on the behalf of Turkish welding community, in memory of Prof. Stojan Sedmak, who was heart and soul of all Fracture Mechanics and Structural Integrity activities in exYugoslavia and later in Serbia ever since his Magister thesis in 1968. We will do our best to present Belgrade and Serbia in a way that you will not forget the last week in August 2018 and hopefully that you will wish to come back. Toward this aim many attractive events will be organized, starting with welcome reception on Sunday and Culture dinner on Monday, followed with sightseeing tours by boat on Tuesday and by bus on Wednesday, to end by the Conference dinner on Thursday. Well, not exactly an ending since out-of-town excursions will be organized every day during the conference, as well as one- or two-days tours afterwards. Looking forward to seeing you in Belgrade!
Prof. dr Aleksandar Sedmak

ESIS Technical Committees: NEW SERVICE

For each Technical Committee, a shared Google Drive folder has been activated. Filling the FORM and joining the TCs (one or more, it doesn't matter!), you will be able to share your publications (in the pre-print format), giving them more evidence, and you will be always updated about the papers published by the other TC members on the topics of your interest (and, obviously, about the TC activities).
ESIS-TC subscription form: LINK
How to share your papers in G Drive: LINK

ESIS: G Suite for all the ESIS members

ESIS has been approved for Google Apps for Nonprofits. The G Suite (basic version) has been activated for all the ESIS members (from 2016 onwards) and soon they will receive the credentials completely free of charge (the normal cost of this service is 50 USD per user/year).
Many new services are active in the G Suite (e.g., Classroom, that is really useful in the organization of Summer Schools) and other services are improved if compared to the "standard" Google services (e.g., Google Drive is 30 Gb instead of 15 Gb).
If you are a 2017 ESIS member and you did not receive the credentials, please, send us an email (
Since 2017, G Suite credentials have being used as credentials for the ESIS website (please, activate these credentials in Google before using them in the ESIS website).

Be always update with ESIS events and activities!
