Heidelberg ( is a worldrenowned beauty spot in an idyllic setting on the river Neckar. The picturesque ensemble of the castle, the Old Town, and the river Neckar surrounded by hills has inspired poets and artists.
First mentioned in 1196, Heidelberg was planned and built, together with the castle, in the 13th century. Heidelberg's heyday as the capital of the Electoral Palatinate began with the foundation of the university – today the oldest in Germany – in 1386.

This research workshop is intended to promote discussion and the free exchange of ideas in an area of considerable interest to the fields of fracture and fatigue; namely the characterisation of crack tip fields and, in particular, to consider the issue of more accurate multiparameter characterisation, often using a number of simultaneous sophisticated experimental techniques to validate analytical advances.
Invited participants will be expected to prepare a 20 minute presentation on a topic of close relevance to the workshop theme, and significant time will be devoted to discussing the ideas presented to identify fruitful avenues for future work and collaboration.

Submitted conference papers will be peer reviewed for publication in a special issue of Frattura ed Integrità Strutturale (Fracture and Structural Integrity), the International Journal of the Italian Group of Fracture (indexed in Scopus).
Special issues of International Journal of Fatigue and Fatigue & Fracture of Engineering Materials & Structures are planned to contain selected papers which have been extended to take into account the workshop discussions and then peer reviewed.
