Dear Friend,
2015 will be a very exciting year for IGF. Two consecutive workshops will be held in Urbino on two important topics:
- Characterization of Crack Tip Fields, april 20-22, 2015
- Challenges in Multiaxial Fatigue, april 22-24, 2015
In June, IGF will organize the XXIII National IGF Conference - 1st International Edition (June 22-24, 2015). All our friends from all over the world are warmly invited to join us and participate to this conference that will be held in the little but wonderful island of Favignana (near Sicily). The official language of the event will be English and proceedings will be published on Procedia Engineering (new abstract deadline: 05/04/2015. Submission procedure is published in the IGF website).
… and, obviously, do not forget the European Conference on Fracture (ECF21) that will be held in Catania in June 2016 (
Looking forward to meeting you soon in Urbino and/or in Favignana,

Francesco Iacoviello
