The NSCM is organized annually by the Nordic Association for Computational Mechanics (NoACM), which represents the interest for the Nordic and Baltic countries in the European Community on Computational Methods in Applied Sciences (ECCOMAS) and the International Association for Computational Mechanics (IACM). The first event was held at Chalmers University in Gothenburg, Sweden in 1988.
The overall mission for theses events is to be a meeting place for researchers developing computational methods and scientists and engineers focusing on challenging applications in broad aspects of mechanics. In particular, presentations by graduate students are welcomed. Thus, making a friendly and creative atmosphere for the participants is considered important.
The seminars are organized annually by the Nordic Association of Computational Mechanics and cover all fields of computational mechanics. The seminars, which circulate between the Nordic and Baltic countries, offer a meeting place for academics and practitioners from the participating countries, as well as from other countries. NSCM-29 will consist of invited plenary lectures of 45 minutes each, keynote lectures of 30 minutes each and contributed presentations of 20 minutes each including discussion. The official language of the seminar is English.
