First AnnouncementImportant deadlines: NEW! 20 May 2017 – on-line abstract submission; 22 May 2017 – notification of abstract acceptance; 15 June 2017 – early registration.

The 13th National Congress on Theoretical and Applied Mechanics will be held from 6th to 10th September 2017 in Sofia at the Institute of Mechanics – Campus I of the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences.

The Congress is intended to provide opportunities for scientists and engineers working in the field of mechanics to exchange new ideas, discuss current research and establish a basis for future collaboration.
