The CILAMCE 2016 – XXXVII Ibero-Latin American Congress on Computational Methods in Engineering will take place in Brasília, Brazil, from 6 to 9 November. CILAMCE is an annual conference – promoted by the Brazilian Association of Computational Methods in Engineering (ABMEC) – intended as an international forum for communicating recent developments of numerical methods in several engineering areas.

Since 1977, when it was founded by the emerging Brazilian community of computational mechanics under the leadership of the late Prof. Agustín Ferrante, CILAMCE has become the main opportunity for engineers, students, researchers and other professionals mainly from Brazil and Latin-America to discuss and explore the state of the art of computational methods.

CILAMCE is a multidisciplinary event: scientists and engineers from all over the world are encouraged to attend the conference. The technical program will include six invited plenary speakers and a large number of mini-symposia with contributed papers.

As it already has become a tradition, there will be a special competition – the Agustín Ferrante Award – to acknowledge undergraduate students who show potential for outstanding scientific achievements.

At this time it is hosted by the Graduate program in Engineering Material Integrity (PGINTEGR) of the University of Brasilia (UnB). The conference comes back to Brasilia, Brazil capital, 19 years after the last one organized by the late Prof. Paul William Partridge in 1997.

The venue is at CNTC’s Conference Center (Confederação Nacional dos Trabalhadores do Comércio) located in commercial center near from the most hotels of Brazilian capital.

We look forward to welcoming you to Brasília at CILAMCE 2016.
