This is the official homepage of the The 11th International Symposium on Advanced Science and Technology in Experimental Mechanics (11th ISEM'16-Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam).


The Symposium will take place at Saigon Vissai Hotel in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, which is located on the street from Tan Son Nhat Airport to downtown of Ho Chi Minh City. It takes about 5~8 minutes by taxi from Tan Son Nhat Airport to Saigon Vissai Hotel.

Scope and Topics

Background and Aims

The Japanese Society for Experimental Mechanics (JSEM) was founded in 2001 by reorganizing the former Japan Society for Photoelasticity to extend its covering area of Experimental Mechanics not only to Solid Mechanics but also to various areas of Applied Mechanics such as Fluid Mechanics, Thermal Engineering, Medical Engineering, Biomechanics, Construction and Civil Engineering and so on. The first Symposium was successfully held in Sapporo, Japan (2006) to attain its main purpose of the new establishment. The Symposium was subsequently held in Osaka, Japan (2007), Tainan, Taiwan (2008), Niigata, Japan (2009), Kyoto, Japan (2010), Sendai/Kansai, Japan (2011), Taipei, Taiwan (2012), Sendai, Japan (2013), New Delhi, India (2014) and Matsue, Japan (2015).
The present Symposium aims to promote an exchange of recent and advanced information among scientists and engineers in the wide field of Experimental Mechanics with special focus on Environmental, Medical and Welfare Engineering. The Symposium is also aimed particularly at promoting communication and collaboration between fundamental researchers and those engaged in the development of practical technology in respective areas of Experimental Mechanics. This Symposium title was updated to The International Symposium on Advanced Science and Technology in Experimental Mechanics since the 5th ISEM'10-Kyoto, because the areas covered in the Symposium have been expanded as mentioned above.
