They regularly organise national and international events to promote discussions and the free exchange of ideas in areas of interest to the fields of fracture and structural integrity. The Italian, Portuguese and Spanish Groups of Fracture are organising this first multilateral workshop not only to increase the level of cooperation amongst the Groups themselves, but also to give prominence to the research work done in the Iberian-Latin region of Europe on fracture and structural integrity related issues. In this friendly context, also researchers from other countries than Spain, Portugal and Italy are cordially invited to participate in this unique research workshop designed to allow scientists and engineers to present and exchange new data and cutting edge ideas in an informal and interactive format at a conference venue in a beautifully scenic Italian island. Special celebration: As a special event, dedicated sessions will be organised to celebrate the outstanding research work done, throughout his prestigious career, by Professor Bruno Atzori(University of Padova, Italy), who will be retiring in September 2014.
