Τhe Greek Association of Computational Mechanics (GRACM) in association with the Mechanical and Civil Engineering Departments of the University of Thessaly organize the 8th conference in a series of congresses in the area of computational mechanics.

GRACM is a member of ECCOMAS – the European Community on Computational Methods in Applied Sciences – and is affiliated with IACM – the International Association for Computational Mechanics. The first congress was held in 1992 and is organized ever since by GRACM in a different city in association with local Educational/Research Institutions.

Previous Congresses
1st  GRACM, 1992, Athens
2nd GRACM, 1996, Chania
3rd GRACM, 1999, Volos,
4th GRACM, 2002, Patras,
5th GRACM, 2005, Limassol,
6th GRACM, 2008, Thessaloniki,
7th GRACM, 2011, Athens,

All these congresses served as meeting points of the Greek computational mechanics community, domestic and of the diaspora, along with international participation.

This time the conference returns to Volos where it was successfully organized in 1999. Volos is the host city of the majority among the Academic Departments of the University of Thessaly. It is conveniently located in the centre of Greece, at the mouth of Pagasitikos bay in the vicinity of beautiful mountain Pelion, offering the capability of easy access from different parts of Greece and abroad.

The conference series is dedicated to bringing to the forefront current and innovative research activities, conducted mainly by Greek researchers, which combine numerical methods and analytical tools in the field of theoretical and applied mechanics. Researchers whose line of research is either fundamental or applied are encouraged to participate.

Young researchers are particularly encouraged to present their work and reduced fees are offered for this purpose. Furthermore, a Best Doctoral Thesis Award will be given to a thesis on Computational Mechanics defended in 2014. The best thesis will be selected among those who will be submitted to GRACM in the framework of the relevant ECCOMAS call. The award will be presented to the winner upon the closing of the conference..

The official language of the congress, in accordance with the standard GRACM policy, is English. All registered participants will receive a certificate of attendance for GRACM 2015.

The printed book of abstracts and the accompanying CD of conference proceedings with the full length papers will be published by the University of Thessaly Press and they will have their own ISBN Number.
