    The 9th European Conference on Constitutive Models for Rubbers (ECCMR IX) will be held in Prague (Czech Republic) between September 1st and 4th, 2015

The 9th European Conference on Constitutive Models for Rubbers (ECCMR IX) will be held in Prague (Czech Republic) between September 1st and 4th, 2015.

ECCMR is the premier rubber research and technology event worldwide, in a series of biennial conferences. The previous eight conferences (Vienna 1999, Hannover 2001, London 2003, Stockholm 2005, Paris 2007, Dresden 2009, Dublin 2011 and San Sebastián 2013) were highly successful and attracted an increasing number of participants for a wide variety of disciplines in academia and industry in the field of rubber technology.

The conference is aimed at bringing together specialists in research across all disciplines associated with elastomers and provides the opportunity to discuss advances in rubber mechanics. The conference topics cover all aspects of rubber technology, such as:

  • Experimental characterisation
  • Rheology and processing
  • Filler reinforcement
  • Dynamic mechanical properties of elastomers
  • Stress softening
  • Modelling of viscoelastic and hyperelastic behaviour
  • Constitutive models and their implementation in FEM
  • Micro-structural theories of rubber
  • Aging
  • Strength, fracture, fatigue and lifetime prediction of rubber
  • Industrial applications
  • Tyres and friction
  • Design issues
  • Special elastomers (magneto-sensitive elastomers, soft tissues, special purpose rubbers, foams, biopolymers)

    Enjoy Virtual Tours from Prague's Towers

Prior to your arrival in Prague you may like to make a virtual visit to the "city of hundred spires" as it has been called by the poets and the nation alike.

You may begin your visit to Prague in advance of your travel by accessing  the   website for your virtual tour of the city:  Hundred-Spired Prague.

The top hundred of Prague's most famous spires are listed, there are actually several thousands, and by clicking on the individual tower, you can access and manipulate the views presented  in magnificent, panoramic 360/180 degrees and see many details and objects, sometimes even those inaccessible to public, and see Prague from  unusual angles and viewpoints. There is always a surprise waiting for you somewhere, even if you know the place quite well.

Enjoy  Prague of hundred towers

Please note: Flash software, which is available free of charge on the Internet is needed.

    Prague - the Conference Venue

The IX. ECCMR Conference will be held at the Diplomat Hotel, Prague that is situated near the campus of the Czech Technical University in Dejvice.The hotel Diplomat is located near the City Centre and can be easily reached by public transport in less than 15 minutes.  Prague, the capital of the Czech Republic, is a well known tourist destination for it's architecture and art. There are many unique historical monuments  and places of interest such as the Old Town, Charles Bridge, Prague Castle, the old Jewish Quarter, with its world famous Cemetery and Old New Synagogue, art galleries, and magnificent views along the river Vltava (Moldau). The Technical University of Liberec is delighted to invite scientists from both Europe and overseas to share their scientific knowledge and to take part in the unique cultural experience of visiting Prague.
