Talks and discussion focused on the theme of "<a href="">Advancements in Oral Care & Dental Health through New Innovative Approaches</a>" and it was a great success with a positive note, encouragement and support from all our participants we are proudly announcing <a href="">2nd European Congress on Dentistry & Oral Health</a>during March 25-27, 2019 at Prague, Czech Republic.</p> <p><a href="">2nd European Congress on Dentistry & Oral Health</a> invites Delegates and Participants from across all continents to attend the congress on Stomatology which comprises prominent keynote talks, plenary presentations, poster presentations and exhibitions pertinent to the domains of Dentistry & Oral Health on theme Dental research towards contemporary therapeutics and restorative approaches in oral health.</p> <p>We cordially invite all of you to participate in Dental 2019</p> Thu, 07/19/2018 - 12:04 1264123 1264123 ECR 2019 - 25th European Congress of Radiology <p>The poster design for ECR 2019 is inspired by two concepts – the city of Genoa, hometown of the ESR President, and the fact that ECR 2019 will be the 25th European Congress of Radiology to take place in Vienna. Genoa is on the Mediterranean Sea, and has one of the largest aquariums in Europe. It is both an entertaining and a scientific institution that attracts many visitors, even from abroad.<br /> <br /> Choosing the colour of the Mediterranean as the background, with a number of fish swimming in it, was an easy choice. But, if you look more in detail, you can see that each fish has been designed with the colours of one of the posters of the past ECRs and that they, together, delineate the number 25.</p> <p>Furthermore, the number 25 at the top of the poster and the logo surrounding it are written with the same font used for the ECR posters of the first years. These details try to recall the past and to underline that the new congress is carrying on along the same lines as earlier ones. Again, the concept of continuity of ESR's activities over time (and over presidencies). </p> <p>The <strong>next ECR congress</strong> will be held from <strong>February 27 – March 3, </strong><strong>2019</strong><strong> in Vienna, Austria.</strong></p> Thu, 07/19/2018 - 11:45 1264121 1264121 ICCAS 2019 - International Conference on Computer Applications in Shipbuilding <p>The venue for the 19th International Conference on Computer Applications in Shipbuilding (ICCAS), to be held in 2019, has been announced as Rotterdam. </p> <p>Continuing the noteworthy success of previous conferences, ICCAS offers unequalled opportunity for international delegates from the global shipbuilding and marine industry to see practical application of computing technologies across all aspects of design, production, and in-service operation of ships and marine structures.</p> <p>ICCAS will include papers on all aspects of shipbuilding. Delegates can understand the implementation, success and benefits of applying computing technologies in the industry to improve methodologies, processes and productivity.</p> <p>The Postillion Convention Centre WTC Rotterdam, Beursplein 37, 3011 AA Rotterdam, Netherlands.

It has also been promoted by the European Committee on Computational Solids and Structural Mechanics (ECCSM) of ECCOMAS. COMPDYN 2019 will be held in conjunction with the <strong>3rd International Conference on Uncertainty Quantification in Computational Sciences and Engineering (UNCECOMP 2019)</strong>, also an ECCOMAS Thematic Conference.</p> <p> </p> Thu, 07/19/2018 - 11:00 1264047 1264047 9th International Conference on Computational Methods and Experiments in Material and Contact Characterisation <p>The aim of the conference is to facilitate interaction between the research and industrial community and discuss the latest developments in this rapidly advancing field. The meeting responds to the demand for high quality production for both industry and consumer, which has led to rapid developments in materials science and engineering. This requires the characterisation of the properties of the materials.</p> <p>Of particular interest to industry and society is the knowledge of surface treatment and contact mechanics of these materials to determine the in-service behaviour of components subject to contact conditions. Modern society requires systems that operate at conditions that use resources effectively. In terms of components durability, the understanding of surface engineering wear frictional and lubrication dynamics has never been so important.</p> <p>Current research is focussed on modifications technologies that can increase the surface durability of materials. The characteristics of the system reveal which surface engineering methods should be chosen and as a consequence it is essential to study the combination of surface treatment and contact mechanics.</p> <p>Combinations of different experimental techniques as well as computer simulation methods are essential to achieve a proper analysis. A very wide range of materials, starting with metals through polymers and semiconductors to composites, necessitates a whole spectrum of characteristic experimental techniques and research methods.</p> <p>The conference is a result of a series of meetings that started as early as 1993 in Southampton on contact mechanics and previous meetings on the wider field of material characterisation dating from the 2003 conference in Santa Fe, New Mexico. The papers presented at all those conferences are permanently archived in the eLibrary of the Wessex Institute ( where they are easily accessible in Open Access format to the international scientific community.</p> <p>Conference Topics</p> <p>The following list covers some of the topics to be presented at Materials Characterisation 2019.
