Chicago, IL, USA map
The US National Congress of Theoretical and Applied Mechanics is held every four years under the auspices of the U.S. National Committee on Theoretical and Applied Mechanics (USNC/TAM) to foster and promote the exchange of ideas and information among the various disciplines of the TAM community around the world, and to chart future priorities in mechanics related research, applications and education. Following the successful 17th USNC/TAM at Michigan State University in East Lansing, Michigan, the 18th USNC/TAM will be hosted by Northwestern University, at the Hyatt Regency O’Hare from June 5 to June 9, 2018.
For the first time, the Congress will be jointly organized with the Chinese Society of Theoretical and Applied Mechanics (CSTAM).

To celebrate the 25th Anniversary of the European Community on Computational Methods in Applied Sciences (ECCOMAS), the 6th European Conference on Computational Mechanics (Solids, Structures and Coupled Problems) (ECCM 6) and the 7th European Conference on Computational Fluid Dynamics (ECFD 7) will be jointly organized in Glasgow, UK.
ECCM-ECFD 2018 in Glasgow is hosted by The University of Glasgow and The University of Edinburgh, in partnership with the UK Association for Computational Mechanics in Engineering (UKACM).
The ECCOMAS Conference on Computational Solid and Structural Mechanics (ECCM) and the ECCOMAS Conference on Computational Fluid Dynamics (ECFD), together with the ECCOMAS Congress, constitute the three main scientific events of ECCOMAS organized every four years, on even years, which attract approximately 5000 participants in total.
Previous ECCOMAS Conferences on Computational Solids, Structures and Coupled Problems in Engineering (ECCM) were held in Munich, Germany (1999), Cracow, Poland (2001), Lisbon, Portugal (2006) and in Paris, France (2010).
Previous ECCOMAS Conferences on Computational Fluid Dynamics (ECFD) were held in Stuttgart, Germany (1994), Athens, Greece (1998), Swansea, Wales, UK (2001), Egmond aan Zee, The Netherlands (2006) and in Lisbon, Portugal (2010).
ECCM 5 and ECFD 6 Conferences were jointly organized in Barcelona, Spain, on 20 - 25 July 2014.
