This volume constitutes the Proceedings of the IUTAM Symposium on 'Scaling in Solid Mechanics', held in Cardiff from 25th to 29th June 2007, to address topical issues in theoretical, experimental and computational aspects of scaling approaches to solid mechanics and related fields. Scaling is a rapidly expanding area of research which has multidisciplinary applications. The expertise represented at the Symposium was accordingly very wide, and many of the world's greatest authorities in their respective fields participated.
