We are proud to announce that we (Josef Málek, Charles University in Prague and Endre Süli, University of Oxford) will be organizing minisymposium **Implicitly constituted material models: modeling and analysis**. The minisymposium will be a part of the 6th European Congress of Mathematics which will take place on July 2-7, 2012 in Krakow.

The objective of the minisymposium is to:

- introduce the
**implicit constitutive theory**which is a new framework for developing**material models in continuum mechanics**, - show that the new framework leads to systems of
**partial differential equations**that have very interesting structure, - discuss challenging
**mathematical issues**related to the newly developed models, - present some recent mathematical
**results**in this field.

See minisymposium webpage for a schedule and lecture abstracts.
