Prof. Dr.-Ing. habil. Dr. h.c.mult Holm Altenbach is a member of the International Association of Applied Mathematics and Mechanics, and the International Research Center on Mathematics and Mechanics of Complex Systems (M&MoCS), Italy. He has held positions at the Otto von Guericke University Magdeburg and at the Martin Luther University Halle-Wittenberg, both in Germany. He graduated from Leningrad Polytechnic Institute in 1985 (diploma in Dynamics and Strength of Machines). He defended his Ph.D. in 1983 and was awarded his Doctor of Technical Sciences in 1987, both at the same institute.
He is currently a Full Professor of Engineering Mechanics at the Otto von Guericke University Magdeburg, Faculty of Mechanical Engineering, Institute of Mechanics (since 2011), and has been acting as Director of the Institute of Mechanics since 2015.
His areas of scientific interest are general theory of elastic and inelastic plates and shells, creep and damage mechanics, strength theories, and nano- and micromechanics.He is author/co-author/editor of 60 books (textbooks/monographs/proceedings), approximately 380 scientific papers (among them 250 peer-reviewed) and 500 scientific lectures. He is Managing Editor (2004 to 2014) and Editor-in-Chief (2005 - to date) of the Journal of Applied Mathematics and Mechanics (ZAMM) - the oldest journal in Mechanics in Germany (founded by Richard von Mises in 1921). He has been Advisory Editor of the journal "Continuum Mechanics and Thermodynamics" since 2011, Associate Editor of the journal "Mechanics of Composites" (Riga) since 2014, Doctor of Technical Sciences and Co-Editor of the Springer Series "Advanced Structured Materials" since 2010.
