This symposium focuses on the mechanical characterization of materials at the micro- and nanometer length scale. Both, nanomaterials (where the internal length is typically in the nanometer regime) and small-scale specimens (where one or more principal length scales of the sample is in the micro- or nanometer regime) are considered. The emphasis of this symposium lays on the structure – properties relationship, e.g. length scale effects, interface properties, deformation behavior, etc. Submissions related to experimental research, as well as to modelling of nanoscale mechanical deformation, are encouraged. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:1) Testing of new nanostructured materials (e.g. thin films, layered structures, …),2) New small-scale specimen types and advanced testing methods (e.g. in-situ testing inside the SEM, TEM or Synchrotron-Beamlines, …)3) “Small-scale” mechanical properties including uniaxial properties (e.g. tensile properties), fracture properties and fatigue behavior.

4) Use of simulation techniques in interpreting local and nanoscale responses.
