SACAM 13 – call for abstracts

Location: STIAS Wallenberg Centre, Stellenbosch

Date: 22-23 January 2024

SACAM is a premier international conference on Computational and Applied Mechanics on the African Continent that attracts both local and international participants. SACAM is held every two years under the auspices of the South African Association for Applied Mechanics (SAAM) as a forum for presenting current developments in computational and applied mechanics. The main function of SACAM is to bring together engineers, scientists and applied mathematicians from academia, research institutions and industry to encourage scientific engagement and exchange of ideas in applied and computational mechanics. Participation of post graduate students is encouraged.

Please submit your abstracts before 28 August 2023 by e-mail to

Abstracts should adhere to the following requirements:

  • The title should be concise (not more than 12 words);
  • It should bear the names of authors and their affiliations and the e-mail address of the corresponding author;
  • The abstract should not exceed 500 words;
  • The abstract should include 3 – 5 keywords;

8th International Conference on Material Modelling

Location: London, UK

Date: 15-17 July 2024

Material modelling has become a field of high scientific importance in the last decades. Although there are many workshops, meetings, colloquia, etc. on specific materials and particular applications, an ICMM conference series is the only one dedicated to material modelling and its various aspects. To this end, the aim of the ICMM conference is to bring together researchers from various fields of material modelling and material characterization and to cover all aspects of material modelling. It will provide the opportunity for interaction with and exchanges between scientists working in different subareas of mechanics of materials who otherwise would not come into contact with each other.

Africomp 6

Location: Cape Town, South Africa

Date: 26-28 February 2024

The African Conference on Computational Mechanics (AfriComp) is a conference series with the main objective of providing a forum for researchers and students in computational mechanics on the African continent to interact with members of the computational mechanics community from around the world. In this way the conference series is seen as a key initiative aimed at promoting computational mechanics in Africa. Technical papers are invited on topics from any area of computational mechanics.

The Call for Abstract & Minisymposium Proposal Submissions is now open!

SINTEF is pleased to announce the next event in the conference series – 15th International Conference on Industrial Applications of Computational Fluid Dynamics. The event will happen in Trondheim June 11-13, 2024. This is an early announcement. Call for papers will be announced later. The conference web page is given in this link.

Past events

Africomp 5

Location: Cape Town, South Africa

Date: 2-4 November 2022

During the past decades, computational mechanics has become a field of central scientific importance, spanning all fields of science. This conference series is dedicated to bringing together delegates from across the globe to promote computational and applied mechanics on the African continent and worldwide.

7th International Conference on Material Modelling

Location: Cape Town, South Africa

Date: 29 November-2 December 2022

The 7th International Conference on Material Modelling will be held in Cape Town, South Africa, arguably the most beautiful city on the planet. This biannual conference is the seventh in the successful ICMM series. The first ICMM took place in 2009 in Dortmund, Germany. The conference has since then been organized in Paris, Warsaw, Berkeley, Rome, and Lund in Sweden. Held for the first time in the Southern Hemisphere, ICMM7 will bring together researchers from around the world, who are involved in the various fields of material modelling and material characterization.
