Invited plenary speaker

Prof. Elias C. Aifantis

Elias C. Aifantis is an Emeritus Professor of Mechanics at Aristotle University of Thessaloniki/GR and Michigan Technological University/ USA; formerly a Distinguished Research Professor at King Abdulaziz University/SA, Distinguished Visiting Expert at ITMO University/RU and Southwest Jiaotong University/China, as well as an Invited Director at Togliatti State University/RU. He has promoted highly interdisciplinary work in mechanics of materials by bringing into the field of solid mechanics ideas from diffusion theory, chemical reactions, and nonlinear physics.

He has pioneered theories on dislocation patterning and material instabilities, gradient elasticity and plasticity, chemomechanics and nanomechanics. His current interest is on neuro-nano-electro-chemo-mechanics.

He has published over 339 articles and received about 11,704 citations with 54 h-index (Scopus); 10,832 citations with 53 h-index (Web of Science); 17,860 citations with 66 h-index (Google Scholar). He is included in the ISI Web of knowledge list of the world’s most highly cited authors in engineering.
