General Information

IMPORTANT: please notice that MECOM 2018 will be held at UNSTA venue (Av. Perón 2085, Yerba Buena, Tucumán.). For more information see venue.

ENIEF/MECOM congress series are annual meetings organized with the auspice of the Argentine Association of Computational Mechanics to promote the diffusion of scientific and technological information related to Computational Methods in Engineering, to favour the exchange of experiences related to the scientific and professional use of numerical methods and computational techniques, not only for research purposes but also for technology transfer to the industrial sector, to promote research and learning of basic theories of Computational Mechanics and to promote the exchange of information and scientific and technological works.
