    Symposium Honoring the Contributions of Elias Aifantis Organizers: Douglas J. Bammann, Hussein M. Zbib, Petros Sofronis Every four years, the engineering mechanics and materials communities of the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME), and the Society of Engineering Science (SES) hold a joint conference. In 1997, it was held at Northwestern University in Evanston, Illinois, and in 2001, it was held at University of California in San Diego, La Jolla, California. The 2005 Joint ASME/ASCE/SES Conference on Mechanics and Materials (McMat2005) will be held in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, on June 1-3, 2005. Activities will be hosted by Louisiana State University with Professor George Z. Voyiadjis as the Conference Chair. This important conference offers an exciting exchange of information that comes about through the congress of three major engineering mechanics and materials communities. This special symposium within the McMat2005 conference is organized to recognize the contributions of Professor Elias Aifantis in the fields of mechanics and materials. In particular, the areas associated with diffusion-reaction theory, gradient theory, mixture theory and hydrogen embrittlement, plasticity and material instability. Conference Location and Organization McMat2005 will be held at the Holiday Inn Select located adjacent to Interstate I-10 in the middle of a new bustling area of Baton Rouge. Activities will be hosted by Louisiana State University, and many faculty and students are heavily involved with organizing the conference. For more information, visit the conference web site at www.McMat2005.eng.lsu.edu. The full program and registration information should be available soon.

    Thessaloniki, July 1O 22, 2006

    Complexity, or the study of complex systems has emerged as a new science - often called Nonlinear Science - from the need to understand complicated problems of the Natural and Social Sciences. These problems generally involve many coupled variables and are characterized by unpredictable time evolution and/or highly intricate spatial patterns. In recent years, efforts to solve such problems have concentrated upon the use of analytical and numerical methods of Nonlinear Dynamical Systems, Chaos Theory and Fractal Geometry.

    'I got a degree at 19, PhD at 21' Katerina Aifantis is passionate about science.

    She passed her degree at 19, and was awarded a PhD in natural sciences and mathematics at the age of 21.

    Her studies took her from Michigan Tech in the US, to Cambridge University, UK, and then to the University of Groningen in the Netherlands.

    Dr Aifantis is one of the first recipients of a new funding programme for "exceptional" researchers who chose to work in Europe.

    Now 24, she is the youngest recipient of one of the first European Research Council (ERC) starting grants. She will use the grant to spearhead a research programme studying mechanisms that exist at very small scales in the "tiny world"of nanotechnology.

    The aim of the work is to develop new applications of nanotechnology in the field of biomedicine, such as miniature batteries for brain implants designed to treat diseases such as Parkinson's.

    Such devices would apply a current to dead nerves, and help activate parts of the brain that have been damaged, she says.

    "I have to apply a new theoretical framework in order to capture what goes on in the nanoscale," she says.

    She credits her precocity with growing up in a scientific environment - her father is a scientist working in the field of mechanics, who was surrounded by Nobel Prize winners.

    "I met this beautiful community in science and I really wanted to be a part of it," she explains. "I also wanted to see exactly what he was doing so that motivated me to go fast in my studies."

    At 16, she was given the opportunity to enrol at Michigan Tech by her High School principal.

    She passed her degree in engineering at 19, then went to Cambridge University in the UK for her PhD. She was supervised by the applied mathematician, Professor John

    "He let me go straight ahead into research instead of making me take courses and following the traditional path," she says.

    Although she finished her dissertation within a year, she was unable to submit for a PhD at Cambridge because rules stipulate a minimum of three years of study.

    "John Willis and I thought that I could transfer to a different university in Europe that has no time requirements," she explains.

    She moved to the University of Groningen, which was doing similar experiments, and became the Netherland's youngest PhD ever, aged just 21.

    "I guess I was very blessed in having wonderful people to support me, and also both my father and my mother were very supportive of my love for science," she says.

    Her advice to other young scientists is to surround themselves by supportive mentors who will help them do something new in the field. "Motivation is the main thing," she adds.

    She says the ERC starting grant helps ambitious young scientists who want to focus on their research.

    "Because I went very fast, and I got my PhD when I was 21, I was looking for something challenging to do," she says.

    "It's just something amazing for us young people wanting to start out dynamically," she adds.
