The 2nd International Conference on Highly Flexible Slender Structures will be held between 22nd and 26th of September 2025 at Fraunhofer Institute for Industrial Mathematics, Kaiserslautern, Germany.

The distinctive focus of the conference is on structural systems and its parts or elements which are both (i) highly flexible, i.e. exposed to large overall structural deformation and (ii) slender, i.e. characterised by a geometry with at least one structural dimension considerably smaller than the other two as in the case of non-linear rod and shell models.

The highly successful 1st edition of this conference (HFSS 2023, 25-29 September 2023, Rijeka) took place during the closing stage of an MSCA Innovative Training Network on highly flexible slender structures for industrial applications THREAD.
