ATEM'19International Conference on Advanced Technology in Experimental Mechanics 2019

We are pleased to announce that the International Conference on Advanced Technology in Experimental Mechanics 2019 (ATEM’19) will be held in Toki Messe (Niigata Convention Center), Niigata City, Japan from October 7-11, 2019. The conference is organized by the Materials and Mechanics Division of the Japan Society of Mechanical Engineers (MMD-JSME). ATEM’19 is also recognized as the 18th Asian Conference on Experimental Mechanics (ACEM18).

Experimental mechanics was and is the field to develop new methods to measure stress, strain and fracture of solid materials. Thus ATEM’19 welcomes all the new technology to measure the deformation and fracture of solid materials and also the studies on strength of materials, ATEM’19 also has the sessions on fluid and biomechanics, and on various application fields like intelligent materials or robotics. This is because the newly developed measurement technologies always find new application fields. ATEM’19 welcomes the studies of these new fields.

Another significant goal of ATEM’19 is the international and interdisciplinary exchange of knowledge among a large number of mechanical engineers and scientists. The conference offers more informal settings where participants can converse with colleagues and friends over refreshments.


ATEM’19 is the 10th conference of the series of ATEM conferences organized by the Materials and Mechanics Division of the Japan Society of Mechanical Engineers.


The ATEM conference started in 1993 in Kanazawa, Japan, which is called ATEM’93.

After Kanazawa held were the following conferences, ATEM’95 in Tokyo, ATEM’97 in Wakayama, ATEM’99 in Ube, ATEM’01 in Sendai, ATEM’03 in Nagoya, ATEM’07 in Fukuoka, ATEM’11 in Kobe and ATEM’15 in Toyohashi.

ATEM’19 in Niigata is the 10th conference of the series.

About The Niigata City

The Niigata City lies on about the same latitude as Tianjin, Lisbon and San Francisco.

Located 250 km north-northwest of Tokyo, Niigata City is two hours away from the capital by bullet train on the Joetsu Shinkansen line.

Niigata City has a population of 803,000 and an area of 726.45 km2.

It also has a rich natural environment with many bodies of water, including the Sea of Japan, the Shinano River, the Agano River, lagoons and wetlands.

The fertile fields of the vast Echigo Plain produce a multitude of rice-based products and agricultural produce in addition to making Niigata Japan's number one producer of tulips and various other flowers.
