 Dear Sir/Madam,
 the International Centre for Mechanical Science (CISM ) organizes 
 advanced course addressed to researchers and doctoral students. This 
 course are selected by an international Scientific Council and the 
 lecturers are all well known scientists from various countries.CISM 
 is a non-profit institution
 A course by the title "Multiscale Modelling of Plasticity and 
 Fracture by means of Dislocation Mechanics",  coordinated by 
 professors P. Gumbsch (University of Karlsruhe and Fraunhofer, IWM, 
 Germany) and R. Pippan (Austrian Academy of Sciences, Leoben, 
 Austria), will be given from July 4 to 8, 2005.
 Understanding the fundamentals of plastic deformation and fracture of 
 crystalline materials is directly related to dislocation theory. 
 Plasticity, fracture and dislocation theory are indeed longstanding 
 challenges which have recently undergone a revival through 
 development of new theoretical and experimental methods, as well as 
 the improvement of
 computer power. For the successful design of micro or submicro 
 devices the knowledge of the mechanical response of materials in the 
 nanometer regime are essential. The importance of the plastic 
 behaviour from the mesoscale
 down to the atomic level for nanotechnology gave further impulses to 
 this field.
 The course will be focused on regimes from the atomistic to the 
 mesoscale. The central part will be the discrete dislocation 
 mechanics and the neighbouring fields below and above, molecular 
 dynamics and crystal plasticity, respectively. The lectures will give 
 an introduction to the physical phenomena, the theoretical basis, the 
 mathematical description and the methods of simulations. The course 
 is addressed to master students, doctoral students, post docs and 
 experienced researchers in engineering and science who wish to 
 broaden their knowledge and experience in dislocation mechanics and 
 its impact on deformation and fracture of materials as well as on its 
 consequences for the design of micro and nanodevices.
