June 3-5, 1992 at Ecole Polytechnique de Montreal Montreal, Quebec, Canada
SPONSORED BY Ecole Polytechnique of Montreal - Applied Mathematics Department Centre de Recherches Mathematiques de Montreal Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada
CONFERENCE SCOPE, OBJECTIVES AND STRUCTURE The goal of the conference is to present fractals and their applications and to show how fractal concepts can be used in engineering and industrial research. The topics to be covered include, but are not limited to: - disordered materials - fracture, rough surfaces - fluid mechanics - electrochemistry - fractal growth phenomena
A number of one-hour keynote lectures by invited speakers is planned to reinforce the overall goals of the event. Invited speakers include:
James A. Donovan (University of Massachusetts) Thomas A. Hewett (Stanford University) Roland Lenormand (Institut Francais du Petrole) Benoit B. Mandelbrot (IBM Watson Research Center and Yale University) Julio Ottino (Northwestern University) M. Sahimi (University of Southern California) Dalloul Wehbi (Microsurface SARL, Besancon) Richard Wool (University of Illinois) Robert Ziff (University of Michigan)
Several sessions of contributed talks (20 minutes each) are also organized.
The Conference languages are French and English.
CALL FOR PARTICIPATION Anyone involved in fractal applications in engineering is welcome to attend and to submit a contribution to this conference. Abstracts for consideration for presentation at the Conference are invited.
Abstracts should be limited to a single page clearly stating what the significance of the contribution is. The abstracts can be submitted by post, fax or e-mail to the conference secretariat.
