The conference

bcn

The conference will take place at the Technical University of Catalonia (UPC), Vertex Building, Plaza Eusebi G√ľell 6, 08034 Barcelona, Spain.

PARTICLES 2019 will address both the fundamental basis and the applicability of state-of-the-art particle-based computational methods that can be effectively used for solving a variety of problems in engineering and applied sciences.

The denotation “Particle-Based Methods” basically stands for two different computational models in solid and fluid mechanics.

The conference

form

Following the customary celebration of the IASS Symposium every ten years in Spain and the Structural Membranes Conference every four years in Barcelona, the organizers have found an outstanding opportunity to merge both communities into a joint international conference that aims to provide a forum for state-of-the-art contributions and fruitful discussion in the broad fields of shell, spatial, tension and inflatable structures.

The¬†conference will be held at the¬†Crowne Plaza,¬†a modern hotel in downtown Barcelona with very good connections to the airport and the city center. It is located in the heart of Montju√Įc.

The¬†conference will be held at the¬†Crowne Plaza,¬†a modern hotel in downtown Barcelona with very good connections to the airport and the city center. It is located in the heart of Montju√Įc.

The first fourteen conferences in the series were technically and academically successful and these meetings have become established events in the field of computational plasticity. We intend to make of COMPLAS 2019 a step forward in the history of the COMPLAS conferences.

COMPLAS 2019 is one of the Thematic Conferences of the European Community on Computational Methods in Applied Sciences (ECCOMAS). It is also an International Association for Computational Mechanics (IACM) Special Interest Conference.

The congress

sitges

The COUPLED PROBLEMS 2019 congress will be held on 3-5 June 2019 in Sitges, a beautiful village located in the southern Mediterranean coast of Barcelona in Spain.

The objectives of the congress are to present and discuss state of the art, mathematical models, numerical methods and computational techniques for solving coupling problems of multidisciplinary character in science and engineering. The conference goal is to make step forward in the formulation and solution of real life problems with a multidisciplinary vision, accounting for all the complex couplings involved in the physical description of the problem.

The conference is one of the Thematic Conferences of the European Community on Computational Methods in Applied Sciences (ECCOMAS) and a Special Interest Conference of the International Association for Computational Mechanics (IACM). It is also supported by other scientific organizations in Europe and worldwide.

Please find all the information in the official congress website.
