In cooperation with Lodz University of Technology, the Engineering Research Network (EngRN) is pleased to announce the 8th International Conference on Coupled Instabilities in Metal Structures (CIMS 2021) online proceedings. The proceedings are available to all users at no charge and contain abstracts of publicly available papers presented at the conference with links to the full text in the SSRN eLibrary.

The 8th International Conference on Coupled Instabilities in Metal Structures Conference (CIMS 2020 run in 2021) was held in Lodz, Poland, July 12-14 2021, in hybrid system. The host institution was the Lodz University of Technology, Department of Strength of Materials. The conference followed the successful series of CIMS conferences going back to 1992.

The conference was attended by 70 participants (23 participants stationary) from Europe, both Americas, Asia and Australia. The participants presented 35 conference papers and 5 key-note lectures from the area of stability of metal and composite materials structures. Particularly, solutions to problems with buckling, post-buckling and mode interaction as well as failure of metallic structural systems, nanostructures and those made of composite materials were presented. Conference papers and key-note lectures were devoted to the wide research area, including theoretical formulations and analytical procedures, numerical simulations, experimental testing, dynamic behavior of structures, behaviour of structures at elevated temperatures, design codes of practice and standards.

SSRN's searchable library contains abstracts, full bibliographic data, and author contact information for more than 950,700 papers, more than 503,100 authors, and full text for more than 816,000 papers. This content can be accessed at

SSRN supports open access by allowing authors to upload papers to the platform for free through the SSRN User HeadQuarters at - and by providing free downloading of those papers.

Downloads from SSRN in the past 12 months total more than 15.9 million, with more than 154.5 million downloads since inception.

Searching on an individual's name in the author field on our search page at provides a directory of scholars that includes contact information for authors, including email, postal, telephone, and fax information.

SSRN's objective is to provide rapid, worldwide distribution of research to authors and their readers and to facilitate communication among them at the lowest possible cost. In pursuit of this objective, we allow authors to upload papers without charge. And, any paper an author uploads to SSRN is downloadable for free, worldwide.
