October 10-12, 2012, Nanjing, China.
The ICAST 2012 is the 23rd event in a series of successful international conferences which have followed the field of intelligent materials and adaptive structures and systems, from its emergence to its current rapid maturity. The ICAST 2012 aims at promoting research, development and use of adaptive structures and technologies through the exchange of scientific results and insight from leading international scholars and specialists from the Americas, Europe and Asia. The conference provides a forum for discussion of recent advances in the highly multidisciplinary field of smart materials and structures, and encourages transfer of advanced scientific results from research to application. ICAST is a simple session conference with limited attendance.
The Conference welcomes contributions to but not limited to the following topics:
Active or field dependent materials; Shape memory alloys; Ferroelectrics & Piezoelectric; Electroactive polymers; Electrostrictive and Magnetostrictive materials; Electrorheological and magnetorheological fluids; Multifunctional materials; Smart composites; Smart textiles.
Structural Systems and Solutions:
Adaptive or smart structural systems; Active vibration control and reduction; Active/semi active/hybrid damping; Active noise control; Sensors and actuators; Shape and position control; Variable geometry strucures; Nano/micro structures/systems.
Tools and Methodologies:
