Prof. Dietmar Gross received his Engineering Diploma in Applied Mechan- ics and his Doctor of Engineering degree at the University of Rostock. He was Research Associate at the University of Stuttgart and since 1976 he is Pro- fessor of Mechanics at the University of Darmstadt. His research interests are mainly focused on modern solid mechanics on the macro and micro scale, including advanced materials, Prof. Werner Hauger studied Applied Mathematics and Mechanics at the University of Karlsruhe and received his Ph.D. in Theoretical and Applied Mechanics from North- western University in Evanston. He worked in industry for several years, was a Professor at the Helmut- Schmidt-University in Hamburg and went to the University of Darmstadt in 1978. His research inter- ests are, among others, theory of stability, dynamic plasticity and biomechanics. Prof. Jörg Schröder studied Civil Engineering, received his doctoral de- gree at the University of Hannover and habilitated at the University of Stuttgart. He was Professor of Me- chanics at the University of Darmstadt and went to the University of Duisburg-Essen in 2001. His fields of research are theoretical and computer-oriented continuum mechanics, modeling of functional mate- rials as well as the further development of the finite element method. Prof. Wolfgang A. Wall studied Civil Engineering at Innsbruck University and received his doctoral degree from the University of Stuttgart. Since 2003 he is Professor of Mechanics at the TU München and Head of the Institute for Computational Mechanics. His research interests cover broad fields in computational mechanics, in- cluding both solid and fluid mechanics. His recent focus is on multiphysics and multiscale problems as well as computational biomechanics. Prof. Nimal Rajapakse studied Civil Engineering at the University of Sri Lanka and received his Doctor of Engineering degree from the Asian Institute of Technology in 1983. He was Professor of Mechanics and Department Head at the University of Manitoba and at the University of British Columbia. He is currently Dean of Applied Sciences at Simon Fraser University in Vancouver. His research interests include mechanics of advanced materials and geomechanics.
