The conference is shifted by one year, to June 26 - July 1, 2022.

ICSMA19 was originally planned for June 2021, however, the International Committee of ICSMA Conferences decided to shift the date by one year, so that the conference can take place in favorable conditions, by in person participation. Indeed, during the last two years, June was always the best period in the COVID epidemic, so reserve this date in your calendar!

ICSMA 19 in Metz, France, 2022

The19th International Conference on Strength of Materials

June 26 - July 1, 2022

Organized by the Laboratory of Excellence 'DAMAS'
(Design of Alloy Metals for low-mAss Structures)
of the Université de Lorraine and CNRS.


ICSMA 19 is part of a traditional conference series organized every third year since 1967, so more than 50 years. It provides a comprehensive coverage on the research progress in the field of material strength. ICSMA is forging the interface between the mechanics and materials science communities by uniting the research forces to improve material performance. This conference is an international forum for exchanging on material strength of all engineering materials; from solid to bio-materials, from nanoscale to real size structures. The latest achievements obtained in experiments, characterization, simulation and modeling, as well as new applications for technology transfer will be presented and discussed. The Laboratory of Excellence “DAMAS” (Design of Alloy Metals for low-mAss Structures) of the Université de Lorraine and CNRS is in charge of the organization. The conference will be held in Metz, a thrilling city of France, where art and science is living in harmony since two thousand years.
