16 ^{th} International Conference **CoMFoS16: Mathematical Analysis of Continuum Mechanics and Industrial Applications II** URL: https://sites.google.com/site/comfos16/ : IMI Workshop of the Joint Research Projects **Keywords**: Continuum mechanics, Fracture mechanics, Mathematical modeling, Industrial applications Aim and Scope: This is a three-day international conference on mathematical aspects of continuum mechanics for solids. It is the sequel of last year's CoMFoS15 workshop. We aim to discuss about the advancements of the topics in CoMFoS15 and bring forth new research topics. The intended audience are experts from fields ranging from mathematics and physics to engineering and industry. We focus on mathematical theory and numerical simulations related to topics such as fracture mechanics, elasticity, plasticity, scattering, inverse problem and optimal shape design. These topics have become more important in engineering and industry, and a deeper understanding of their mathematical properties is required for future applications. We especially invite distinguished researchers from mathematics, physics, engineering, and industry. There will be various kinds of lectures including the special lectures by the keynote speakers of the conference. **Expected Outcome**: Each lecture is followed by enough discussion time, during which we expect the following outcomes on the above topics among the participants from mathematics, physics, engineering and industry: - finding new mathematical research directions in continuum mechanics from the viewpoints from engineering and industrial requirements,
- Investigating future applications in industry and engineering inspired from the theoretical results presented from mathematicians, physicists and theoretical engineers in the conference.
**History of CoMFoS and MACM**: The conference series "CoMFoS" started at 1995 and has been organized by the activity group 'Continuum Mechanics Focusing on Singularities (CoMFoS)' in The Japan Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (JSIAM). From April 2010, the activity group CoMFoS was renamed 'Mathematical Aspects of Continuum Mechanics (MACM)'. The 16th conference of CoMFoS is held as the IMI Workshop of the Joint Research Projects supported by Institute of Mathematics for Industry, Kyushu University. CoMFoS started as a research community of applied mathematicians and engineers working mainly on solid continuum mechanics and fracture mechanics. At present, it gathers not only mathematicians and engineers but also researchers in physics and industry who discuss mathematical aspects of continuum mechanics related to wider topics including - fracture and damage mechanics,
- elasticity and plasticity,
- shape optimization,
- scattering and inverse problems,
- fluid-structure interaction,
- particle methods,
- soft matter.
