Welcome to the website of


18-21 May 2009, Zielona Góra, Poland

The 18th International Conference on Computer Methods in Mechanics CMM-2009 continues the 36-year tradition of the Polish Conferences on Computer Methods in Mechanics. The Conferences started in 1973 and have taken place every second year. The main idea of these Conferences is still universal - to provide a forum for presentation and discussion of new ideas regarding the theoretical background and applications of computational mechanics.

The previous editions of the CMM Conference have attracted attention of many prominent researchers worldwide. An estimated 300 participants are expected to come to the CMM2009.

Under the auspices of

European Community on Computational Methods in Applied Sciences
Central European Association for Computational Mechanics

Organized by

Polish Academy of Sciences through its:
- Section of Computer Methods in Mechanics, Committee on Mechanics, and
- Section of Mechanics of Structures and Materials, Committee on Civil Engineering and

Polish Association for Computational Mechanics

University of Zielona Góra

Honorary chairman of the conference

O. C. Zienkiewicz

It is with deep sadness and regret that we have to share the sad news that Professor Olgierd Cecil Zienkiewicz passed away on 2nd January 2009. He will remain vivid in our memory and our hearts for ever.

At the CMM2009 there will be held a ceremony during which O.C. Zienkiewicz Medal will be given to some nominated researchers for their outstanding merit in the development of computational mechanics.
