Professor Markus Buehler has been invited to present six lectures for a course at the International Centre for Mechanical Sciences (CISM) in Udine, Italy, July 18-22. The other six lecturers in “Advanced and Bio-Inspired Nanomechanics” include Sir Harold Kroto, co-winner of the Nobel Prize in Chemistry in 1996 for the discovery of fullerenes, and the course organizer, Nicola Pugno of the Politecnico di Torino, Italy. Applications for the course are due one month before the course start date. CISM is a nonprofit organization established in 1968 to “support the exchange and application of the most advanced knowledge in the mechanical sciences, in interdisciplinary fields like robotics, biomechanics, environmental engineering and other fields.”
