The Solid Mechanics Conferences are a series of biennial international conferences, which have been organized by the Institute of Fundamental Technological Research of the Polish Academy of Sciences (IPPT PAN) since 1953.

The aim of the Conference is to bring together researchers from different countries and to provide an opportunity to present scientific results on a wide range of topics related to solid mechanics.

The conferences have maintained high scientific standards and served as a forum for exchange of ideas and research information. Traditionally, besides the oral and poster presentations by participants, a set of invited general and keynote lectures is delivered by invited outstanding researchers of international recognition.
