CPEA'10 is a 5 day school followed by a 5 day conference on continuum physics and engineering applications. It is the second part of a series started in 2007.

The AIM is to give a comprehensive introduction and outlook to the most important directions of modern continuum physics including the theoretical foundations and their applications. This will be an additional possibility to discuss current research activities, to get more acquainted with one another, and to find the areas of possible collaboration (to find a tutor or/and a student) in future. The conference and the school are connected events that can be attended separately.

The scientific programme of the CONFERENCE will consists of invited lectures and contributions of researches of continuum physics including theory, experiments and computer simulations chosen by the International Organizing Committee. Some lectures (chosen by IOC) of the conference will be explained in more detail at the school. There is a certain possibility to publish the texts of the talks later either in the Proceedings of the Estonian Academy of Sciences, or in the International Journal of Aerospace Engineering after a usual refereeing procedure.

The scientific programme of the SCHOOL includes lectures on the different theories of continuum physics in general and, in particular, lectures on extended thermodynamics, multifield theories, gradient models, etc. including their applications (e.g. in damage mechanics, plasticity, rheology, heat conduction and thermo-hygro-mechanics). The morning lectures will be followed by afternoon exercises to work on the studied material. Written lecture notes will be prepared.

THE PLACE chosen for the Conference is Ráckeve, about 30 km down from Budapest on the shore of the Danube river. The accommodation, meals and lectures are planned in the rebuilt Savoya Palace.

The official LANGUAGE of the School and the Conference will be English.

SOCIAL PROGRAMMES will be organized. The planned programme consists of Budapest and Szentendre sightseeing, a "Puszta" visit, the visit of a medieval church and a farmer market, a concert on classic music, folklore programme on the welcome banquet.

The tentative FEEs are:
School: 330 Euro + 330 Euro (registration + accommodation)
Conference: 330 Euro + 330 Euro
School+Conf.: 600 Euro + 600 Euro
