Welcome Note from Chairman of Indonesian Physical Society (IPS) 2017

Experimental mechanics research bridges the gap between physical theory and its application to technology. This is the gateway to deeply understand the behavior of materials, structures and systems in order to providing the necessary and reliable physical basis to support the analytical and computational approaches in the engineering solutions. The Indonesian Physical Society (IPS) through the Indonesian Society for Experimental Mechanics actively accommodates the interaction of scientists, scholars, engineers and industries in Indonesia. The IPS supports the development of interdisciplinary application of experimental mechanic research trough the National and International Conferences and Seminars.

The IPS proudly supports The Asian Conference on Experimental Mechanics (ACEM) 2017 which will be held at Bali International Convention Centre (BICC) in exclusive Resort Area of BICC Hotel, Bali Indonesia from August 28-31, 2017. The ACEM is a prestigious international conference held by the Asian Society of Experimental Mechanics (ASEM). The organizing committee strongly encourage you to join the ACEM 2017.

On behalf of the organizer of the IPS, we graciously greeting you to the ACEM 2017. We hope all of you will enjoy the event and the warmth of our beautiful country, Indonesia.
