-- Sorry --

Due to an unexpected number of registrations already received

The new regular Registration Fee not including the Proceedings and not including the Conference Dinner is $ 160.- (no charge for students). Space is available for you at all Lectures at the Conference. Note that the Proceedings Books published by Elsevier can directly be ordered from Elsevier at the Conference (the price is not known yet).

Please register under these conditions to attend the Conference. Registration is no longer available. We are looking forward to welcome you at M.I.T.

The Second Conference will be held in the same spirit as the First Conference which was held at M.I.T. on June 12 - 15, 2001.
The Proceedings of the First Conference can be obtained through the MIT website

Mission of Conference:

To bring together Industry and Academia and
To nurture the next generation in computational mechanics

Conference Themes

The focus of the Conference will be on computational fluid dynamics, computational solid and structural mechanics, and in particular on the interdisciplinary areas of multi-physics phenomena. Formulations, solution procedures, mathematical analyses, error estimations and adaptivity, model validations, optimization in design and advanced applications are of interest. Finite element, finite volume, finite difference, boundary element, meshless methods,... will be presented.

Some simulation areas regarding Conference topics are listed below.

As in the earlier Conferences, about one hundred young researchers from any part of the world will be fully supported to attend the Conference. A Fellowship provides for all travel expenses, Conference fees, accommodation expenses in M.I.T. on-campus housing, and a personalized Fellowship Certificate. Fellowship awardees are expected to present a paper at the Conference.

Fellowship applicants must be less than about 30 years of age at the time of the Conference, and must submit a Short Paper (of the form described in the Call for Papers), a personal one-page letter of application (specifying why the Fellowship is sought) and two letters of recommendation. The paper should be submitted as specified in the Call for Papers but the letter of application and the letters of recommendation should be faxed to USA (617) 923-3408. E-mail letters of application and recommendation will not be considered.

Applicants will be notified prior to December 30, 2004 as to whether they have been awarded a Fellowship.

( no registration fee for students )
