ECCOMAS Congresses since 1992

The main event organized by ECCOMAS is a large European Congress taking place on a four year cycle and addressing scientists and engineers both in and outside Europe. The main objective of these conferences is to provide a forum for presentation and discussion of state-of-the-art in scientific computing applied to engineering sciences. Equal emphasis is given to basic methodologies, scientific development and industrial applications. The ECCOMAS Congress includes invited lectures, invited Special Technological Sessions (STS), contributed papers from Academy and Industry and organized Minisymposia. Proceedings of the ECCOMAS Congresses are widely disseminated in Europe.

The ECCOMAS Congress, together with the ECCOMAS Conference on Computational Solid and Structural Mechanics (ECCM) and the ECCOMAS Conference on Computational Fluid Dynamics (ECFD), constitute the three main scientific events of ECCOMAS organized every four years, on even years, which attract approximately 5000 participants in total.

Rules & Conditions

Frequency. ECCOMAS Congresses are organized in a four year cycle.

Proposals. At least the following items must be included:

  • Place and date
  • Organisers
  • Congress site facilities
  • Schedule of the congress
  • Hotel facilities
  • Social programme
  • Budget

The Selection Committee. The proposals will be evaluated by the Managing Board of ECCOMAS. If necessary, a short list of selected candidates will be requested to present their proposals in person during the following Managing Board meeting.

Contribution. The contribution of ECCOMAS Congress to ECCOMAS is €30,000 (€40,000 starting 2020). ECCOMAS supports participation of young scientists with a total amount of €20,000.

Rules for nomination and selection of Plenary and Semi-Plenary Lecturers on Congresses and Conferences. One half of the Plenary and Semi-plenary speakers are disposed by the MB and one half by the local organizers of an ECCOMAS congress or conference. For congresses or conferences jointly organized with other associations, e.g. WCCM, corresponding rules have to be applied.

For the selection of speakers nominated by the MB, an ad-hoc Voting Committee (VC) will be appointed by the MB. The VC consists of 5 representatives selected by the MB, which are not eligible to be candidates for a plenary or semi-plenary speaker. The VC collects nominations from the core groups of the Technical Committees and makes the final decision. The VC informs core groups and MB on its decision.

The MB can provide guidelines regarding the selection criteria, e.g. scientific field, quality, geographical region, age (involvement of young scientists), gender, etc., but the MB should not make pre-decisions.

If the nominations of the core groups do not reflect a sufficient representation of the underlying criteria, the VC is eligible to add further candidates in consultation with the core groups of the Technical Committees.
