ICRS 11 – The 11th International Conference on Residual Stresses


The 11th International Conference on Residual Stresses is intended as a continuation of the successful series initiated in Garmisch-Partenkirchen (Germany, 1986) and continued in Nancy (France, 1988), Tokushima (Japan, 1991), Baltimore (USA, 1994), Linkoping (Sweden, 1997), Oxford (UK, 2000), Xi’an (China, 2004), Denver (USA, 2008), Garmisch-Partenkirchen (Germany, 2012) and Sydney (Australia, 2016).

ICRS11 should have taken place in 2020, but due to the COVID pandemic the International Scientific Board of ICRS conferences decided to postpone it to 2022.  

The conference provides a key forum for scientists, students, and engineers interested in the prediction, evaluation, control, and application of residual stresses.

Equal emphasis is given to the measurement, modelling, and utilization of residual stress/strain data.

Both the scientific and engineering aspects of these topics, such as the influence of residual stress fields on distortion, material response to loading, damage initiation and propagation, component performance, life and failure, will be addressed.

Special attention is paid to method development and burning issues of great current interest, as, for example, stresses in nanosized systems, stress analysis using synchrotron radiation, multiscale approaches…

Abstract Submission is closed

Please note:

  • Registration is required when presenting.
  • The language of presentation will be English.

The time allotted is 15 minutes for an oral presentation and 20 minutes for a keynote.

Posters will be displayed in the exhibition hall where lunches and coffee breaks will also take place to provide maximum  visibility. A poster session is scheduled on Tuesday 29 March from 13:45 to 15:15.


It is not mandatory to submit a full paper to ICRS11. Nevertheless, we plan free open access diffusion of the reviewed papers. The maximum length of a contributed paper is 8 pages and must use the template below.

Depending on your operating system, the Template_Proceedings_-ICRS11.docx file will open in a new window or be saved in the Downloads folder

Deadline for submission of full paper is 30 January 2022.

Delegates will have access to available full papers a few days before the conference.

Selected papers will be published after the conference in a special issue of an international journal.


Space for exhibition booths is available. It is located in the same hall as for coffee breaks and conference posters sessions.

On the basis of a 6 m2 module, we will provide you electric power supply (1kW, 220 V AC), table, two chairs. Module reservation includes: participation to lunches and coffee breaks. Module reservation does not include: registration for the conference nor participation to gala dinner

Place Stanislas, a remarkable jewel

Cobblestoned, pedestrian-only Place Stanislas is a perfect place for a stroll. Golden gates and fountains form a link between City Hall, the Grand Hôtel, the Nancy and Lorraine Opera House and the Fine Arts Museum. This architectural jewel was built in the 18th century by Emmanuel Héré at the request of Stanislaw Leszczynski, Duke of Lorraine. Connecting the Old and New Towns, the royal square is listed as a Unesco World Heritage site, together with Carrière and Alliance squares.


General information on accomodation in Nancy area.

The Prouvé Congress Centre

The « Prouvé Convention Center », is first of all the successful refurbishing of a local flagship building. It once was the mail sorting center, built in the 1970’s by architects Jacques André and Claude Prouvé.

Located 95 mins away from Paris, it is a strong asset of the Grand Nancy Council’s attractivity. The « Université de Lorraine », the « Centre Hospitalier Régional Universitaire », the prestigious research laboratories, and the 3 cluster, position Nancy as a dynamic and attractive destination to host Conventions of innovative sectors that have characterized the territory for years.

Also, being 1min away from the train station, the « Prouvé Convention Center » offers walking access within 10 minutes to nearly 1500 rooms and touristic sites. This state of the art equipment has a 600m2 exhibition hall & a 2400 m2 hall that can hold up to 2400 seats, 2 auditoriums (850 and 300 seats), 13 meeting rooms equipped with instant translation cabins. And with a panoramic reception area allowing for up to 1200 dining guests and a 455 car parks underground public parking, it could be the ideal place for hosting your next event.
