Invited Lectures

According to the preliminary program there will be Plenary Lectures and Keynote Lectures delivered by prominent scientists and devoted to the latest achievements in computational methods and mechanics. In order to strengthen the links between academia and industry Industrial Sessions are planned, at which our Sponsors will have the possibility to give presentations. Further details will be given in due time.
