ICRS11 conference becomes a hybrid event

In person in Nancy or with a new option of video streaming for remote access.

In about one month time, our ICRSS11 conference will take place in Nancy. We can reassure you. The health situation related to the COVID 19 pandemic has largely improved in France. Restrictions are gradually being lifted. However, we are aware that travel restrictions will still exist for some of you.

In order to allow as many of you as possible to attend this conference, the organizing committee has decided to set up a platform to follow the oral presentations live. You will be able to ask your questions via a chat. Please note that we will not be able to broadcast the poster session. Only the posters pdf files will be accessible, and you will be able to ask your questions via the chat.

This new option generates significant additional costs, both in terms of equipment and additional human resources to be put in place. If you decide to participate remotely, we have set the following registration fees, which correspond to the initial “Early bird” registration fees.

  • Standard rate: 550€
  • SF2M, RNM or FEMS member: 500€
  • Students: 300€

We hope that this hybrid solution will facilitate access to this event for the entire international Residual Stress community.


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.

Instructions for poster

The recommended size is ISO A0 (width 841 mm x height 1189 mm). The maximum possible width is 950 mm and maximum height 1400 mm.

You should bring your poster yourself, there is no possibility to receive parcel at the Conference Center.

In order to allow a remote poster session, all presenters of poster are requested to send a .pdf file of their poster not later than Monday 21 March 10:00 to the conference secretariat secretariat@sf2m.fr

Instructions for remote oral presentation

All presentation files will be screened from the conference rooms. Hence all remote speakers are requested to send their presentation file (.pptx) and a .pdf of this file not later than Monday 21 March 10:00 to the conference secretariat secretariat@sf2m.fr

The .pdf file will be use as a backup in case of trouble with the .pptx file, for example incompatible font or others.


It is not mandatory to submit a full paper to ICRS11. Nevertheless, we plan free open access diffusion of the papers on the open archive HAL under a collection « ICRS11 » after a reviewing procedure. Deposit of the papers on the open archive will be carried out by the organizers.

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 postponed to 14 March 2022.
Submission of full paper must be done by the submitter following the link below and then click on « EDIT » (down right)

In any case you can also mail your full text to the conference secretariat : secretariat@sf2m.fr

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.

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.
