Hundreds of leading researchers from 15 countries are gathering at the 2012 International Conference on Advances in Computational Mechanics (ACOME), which runs from August 14-16 in Ho Chi Minh City.

The conference, hosted by Ton Duc Thang University , aims to highlight the latest findings, both theory and application, in the field of mechanics.

In particular, the event is attended by four world top mechanics scientists, including Professor Bui Huy Duong from the Ecole Polytechnique in Paris, France, Honourary Professor Giulio Maier from Polytechnique University of Milano, Italy, Professor Gui Rong Liu from the University of Cincinnati, the US and Professor Wing Kam Liu from US’ Northwestern University.

Participants at the conference will hear 78 reports covering issues related to the theories and application of computing methods in solving mechanical problems of computational d amage mechanics, fluid dynamics, mechanics of materials and construction mechanics. Of these, 25 reports will be selected to be published in international magazines.-VNA
