This EUROMECH colloquium is aimed at gathering together the experts in the field of phononic crystals and acoustic metamaterials. The objective is to discuss the current state-of-the-art, deepen the understanding of the physics and mechanics of architected materials of broad size ranges, including the nano-, micro-, and macro-scales, and cross-pollinate research ideas in lively discussions. 

Each topic area will have an approximately equal number of speakers from mechanical metamaterials, phononic and acoustic meta-structures, and topological meta-mechanics. Every invited speaker will give a 15-minute talk followed by a 5 minute Q&A session. In addition, we encourage you to bring your Ph.D. student(s) and post-doc(s) who will have full access to the sessions and can present their work in a poster session. Additionally, a “round table” discussion is planned after the end of each day often combined with social activities.

Please send your 2-page abstract as a Word file (the template attached to the invitation email or can be downloaded by this link) to a.o.krushynska at or dtorrent at
