Welcome to WCCM-APCOM 2022
The congress chair and local organizing committee are pleased to welcome you to the 15th World Congress on Computational Mechanics & 8th Asian Pacific Congress on Computational Mechanics (WCCM-APCOM 2022), to be held in Yokohama, Japan, July 31 to August 5, 2022. The WCCM-APCOM Congress is co-organized by The International Association for Computational Mechanics (IACM) and The Japan Society for Computational Engineering and Science (JSCES) in cooperation with The Asian Pacific Association for Computational Mechanics (APACM) and Japan Association for Computational Mechanics (JACM). The plans to hold an "on-site" congress with featured plenary speakers, over 400 mini-symposia with keynote lectures, exhibitions from various sponsors, and other wonderful events, expecting the end of COVID-19 crisis until then.
Pursuing the Infinite Potential of Computational Mechanics!
WCCM is expected to be one of the largest congresses on Computational Mechanics, with an expected participation from all parts of engineering and science, including academia, government and industry. Computational Mechanics has become a major scientific discipline, underpinning the current advanced engineering and scientific problems. The congress provides a further opportunity to find "Pursuing the Infinite Potential of Computational Mechanics," by adding new topics such as artificial intelligence, machine learning, safety and environmental problems, disaster prevention and mitigation, energy and resource engineering, verification & validation, industrial applications and so on.
Why will it be held at Yokohama?
Facing the Tokyo Bay, Yokohama is a tranquil harbor city forming a part of the Greater Tokyo Area, just half an hour away from the capital Tokyo. Since Japan opened its doors to the world, Yokohama has been the nation’s key entry point for international trade and communications, bringing global perspectives, new ideas and multi-culturalism. The port city has always been recognized for being open to business and to an exchange of expertise through international trade and convention.
"On-site " or "Online " conference?
The local organizing committee believes that face-to-face conference at the venue is the best way to know/communicate each other and to expand future personal connections over the world, in particular for young researchers. Based on this philosophy, the WCCM-APCOM 2022 is organized as the "on-site " conference at the moment. However, the holding method may be changed to the "online" according to situation of the COVID-19 pandemic.
With warmest regards,
