Abstract : The Gordon Research Conference (GRC) on Multifunctional Materials and Structures was held at the Four Points Sheraton in Ventura, California from January 31-February 5, 2016. The conference aimed to extend and accelerate interdisciplinary research activities in this emerging field, which incorporates mechanics, materials science, engineering science, physics, chemistry and biology. Multifunctional design encompasses materials, structures and/or material systems that have the ability to perform multiple functions through judicious combinations of structural properties and at least one additional functional capability as dictated by the system application requirements. The meeting brought together a cross-section of academic scholars, government researchers and planners, and industry professionals thus catalyzing new efforts and worldwide collaborations.
