UKACM 2022 Conference

The University of Nottingham, 20-22 April 2022

The Department of Civil Engineering and School of Mathematical Sciences of University of Nottingham are proud to host the 2022 Annual Conference of the UK Association for Computational Mechanics from 20th to 22nd of April 2022.

The conference provides a forum to present recent advances in computational mechanics (solid and structural mechanics, fluid mechanics, computational fluid dynamics, gas, bioengineering, geomechanics, electromagnetics, multi-physics, mesh generation, etc) with a particular emphasis on interdisciplinary aspects.

The conference is planned as an in-person event. However, we will be following the government and university recommendations regarding the COVID-19 situation and, if required, we will adjust the delivery mode / registration fees and inform all participants by the end of February 2022.

Extended Deadline: 14th January 2022.

Instructions for the abstract submission can be found here
