The 7th GACM Colloquium on Computational Mechanics (GACM 2017) was organised on 11-13 October 2017 in Stuttgart, Germany. The colloquium was hosted by the Institute for Structural Mechanics and the Institute of Applied Mechanics of the University of Stuttgart in collaboration with DYNAmore GmbH. The previous six conferences of this series were held in Bochum (2005), Munich (2007), Hannover (2009), Dresden (2011), Hamburg (2013) and Aachen (2015).
The GACM Colloquium on Computational Mechanics intends to bring together young scientists who are engaged in academic and industrial research on Computational Mechanics and Computer Methods in Applied Sciences. It provides a platform to present and discuss recent results from research efforts and industrial applications.
Thematically arranged sessions and organized mini-symposia as well as social events will provide an environment for lively discussions in an informal atmosphere. The contributions from young researchers will be supplemented by plenary lectures from three senior scientist from academia and industry as well as from the GACM Best PhD Award winners 2015 and 2016. In addition, there will be a poster session including a plenary poster-flash. All submitted posters are eligible for the GACM Best Poster Award.
Young scientists from Europe and all other continents are welcome to this colloquium. Presentations will be given in English.
