Welcome to the XLII CILAMCE AND III PANACM – 2021
The 42nd Ibero-Latin-American Congress on Computational Methods in Engineering (XLII CILAMCE) and the 3rd Pan American Congress on Computational Mechanics (III PANACM) will take place in the marvelous city of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, from 09 to 12 November 2021.
The Image was generated by Renato N. Elias, COPPE / UFRJ. The figure was generated with the ParaView software (paraview.org), from simulation data from the EdgeCFD program (Adriano MA Cortes, Erb F. Lins, Gabriel M. Guerra, Rômulo M. Silva, José LD Alves, Renato N. Elias, Fernando A. Rochinha & Alvaro LGA Coutinho (2020) EdgeCFD: a parallel residual-based variational multiscale code for multiphysics, International Journal of Computational Fluid Dynamics, 34: 7-8, 529-548).
is an annual conference promoted by the Brazilian Association of Computational Methods in Engineering (ABMEC), intended to serve as an international forum for communicating recent developments on numerical methods in all fields of engineering and related sciences.
in turn, is held every three years, promoted by the International Association of Computational Mechanics (IACM) and intended as an international forum for communicating recent developments on computational methods in several fields of engineering and applied sciences. The first edition of PANACM was held in Buenos Aires, Argentina, in 2015 and the second one in New York, USA, jointly with the 13th World Congress of Computational Mechanics, in 2018. The third edition, organized by the Brazilian Association of Computational Methods in Engineering (ABMEC), will be held jointly with CILAMCE in 2021.
Since 1977, when it was first as launched by the emerging Brazilian community of computational mechanics, CILAMCE has become the main conference for engineers, students, researchers and other professionals, especially from Brazil and Ibero-Latin-America (but also from further abroad), to discuss and explore the state-of-the-art on computational methods in engineering.
CILAMCE traditionally promotes a special student competition – the Agustín Ferrante Award – to acknowledge undergraduate students who show potential for outstanding scientific achievements.
CILAMCE and PANACM are multidisciplinary events: scientists and engineers from all fields are encouraged to attend the conference. The technical program typically includes worldly prominent plenary speakers, together with several mini-symposia parallel sessions with contributed papers.
In 2021, CILAMCE and PANACM will take place in Rio not only because of the beautiful beaches, bright sunshine, unforgettable sights and mountains that give it its beautiful curves, but also because Rio is home to a strong scientific community, with several leading academic institutions in South America in the fields of Engineering, Mathematics and Physics. Rio has 5 of the top engineering and research universities in Brazil: Federal University of Rio de Janeiro, State University of Rio de Janeiro, Rio de Janeiro University, Pontifical University of Rio de Janeiro and the Military Engineering Institute. Rio also hosts the Institute of Pure and Applied Mathematics, home of the first Brazilian to win the Fields Medal, as well as the Brazilian Center of Physics Research. Rio is also the Southern hemisphere´s hub of oil and gas industries and home of the most important entertainment and media centers in Brazil. Rio hosts several industrial R&D centers such as CENPES, Petrobras R&D Center, CEPEL, Eletrobras R&D Center, IBM Research Brazil, Ambev Research, Schlumberger, Baker & Hughes, Dell/EMC, L’Oreal, Siemens, Tenaris, Technip, FMC and Vallourec.
We look forward to welcoming you to Rio for the XLII CILAMCE and III PANACM in 2021!
*When submitting your proposal, please inform your preference for face-to-face or virtual presentations.
Further details will be announced
We plan to operate XLII CILAMCE AND III PANACM as a hybrid conference. We hope that as many participants as possible will be able to attend the conference in person, but we also will provide the virtual option so that everybody may join the congress at his/her own discretion and availabilty. In any case, should the pandemic situation not allow the in-person mode, the congress will be held 100% virtual.
