The first international conference on Numerical Modelling in Engineering (NME 2018) will be held in the city of Ghent, Belgium. The overall objective of the conference is to bring together international scientists and engineers in academia and industry in fields related to advanced numerical techniques, such as FEM, BEM, IGA, etc., and their applications to a wide range of engineering disciplines. The conference covers industrial engineering applications of numerical simulations to Civil Engineering, Aerospace Engineering, Materials Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Electronics, Electrical Engineering, Biomedical Engineering, etc.

5–7 September 2018 The 3 rd International conference on Computational methods in Manufacturing Processes (ICOMP’18)

Barcelona, Spain

The 3 rd International conference on Computational methods in Manufacturing Processes (ICOMP’18) will provide an excellent intercommunication opportunity for researchers working on this multidisciplinary field of scientific endeavor.

This conference brings together researchers, practitioners and new comers to the field in an international forum. This community addresses recent advances in development or application of new numerical methods and pioneering computational strategies dedicated to manufacturing processes. It will also serve as mean that strengthens relationships between industry, research laboratories, and universities.

17–19 September 2018 6th International Symposium on Computational Mechanics of Polycrystals, CMCn 2018 and DAMASK User Meeting

Max-Planck-Institut für Eisenforschung GmbH

CMCn2018 The Max-Planck-Institut für Eisenforschung in Düsseldorf is organizing the 6th International Symposium on Computational Mechanics of Polycrystals and we would like to invite you and your research colleagues to participate in this event. This symposium is part of a biannual series of symposia that originated with the establishment of the first joint research group formed between the Max Planck Society and the Fraunhofer Society and investigating Computational Mechanics of Polycrystals. This year the symposium is again combined with the DAMASK User Meeting. DAMASK is the multi-physics simulation software developed at MPIE. The symposium will take place on September 17th and 18th, 2018 in the Max-Planck-Institut für Eisenforschung at Max-Planck-Straße 1, 40237 Düsseldorf, Germany. The DAMASK User Meeting will be held on the following day, September 19th at the same location. If you and your colleagues would like to attend this event, then please register before July 15th 2018. We emphasize that registration is mandatory and that there are limited places only. Many thanks, we hope to see you in Düsseldorf!

23–26 September 2018 12th International Seminar Numerical Analysis of Weldability

Graz - Castle Seggau - Austria

With  the  "12th International  Seminar Numerical  Analysis  of  Weldability",  a  tradition  of  successful  
meetings will be continued. Since the first of these events in 1991, this seminar series has developed
to be a world leading conference in the growing field of the development of methods for predicting
the microstructure and properties of welds. It is both, of practical importance and academic interest
and it supports the philosophy of computer modelling, which helps to optimise welding processes
and consumables as well as the service behaviour of welded components. Leading experts in this
field attend the seminar and present their latest results in the calm atmosphere of an ancient castle.
The  seminar  is  organized  by  the  Institute  of  Materials  Science,  Joining  and  Forming  of  Graz  
University of Technology.

The following items (among others) of development and application of numerical analysis shall be
  • Arc Welding, Melt Pool & Solidification
  • Microstructural Modelling in Weld Metal and Heat Affected Zone
  • Microstructure and Mechanical Properties
  • Residual Stresses and Distortion
  • Cracking Phenomena & Hydrogen Effects
  • Solid State and Friction Stir Welding
  • Laser & Electron Beam Welding
  • Special Joining Processes
  • Modelling Tools and Computer Programs
  • Additive Manufacturing

25–28 September 2018 8th ICSTI 2018 International Congress on the Science and Technology of Ironmaking

Vienna, Austria

Selected contributions of the 8th International Congress on Science and Technology in Ironmaking—8th ICSTI 2018 will be published in the Special Issue. The congress will be held form Sept. 25 to 27 2018 in Vienna and will bring together a wide range of experts, coming from plant operation and plant and equipment suppliers, as well as research institutes and universities, who share expertise in the field of ironmaking. The scope and topic of the contribution to the 8th ICSTI 2018 covers the topics cokemaking, iron ore production and handling, sintering, pelletizing, blast furnace ironmaking, direct reduction, smelting reduction, environmental control in coke and ironmaking, CO2 reduction and energy saving, recycling of in-plant residues, and automation and digitalization in coke and ironmaking, as well as modelling and simulation in coke and ironmaking.
Congress Chairman: Prof. Dr. Johannes Schenk

26–28 September 2018 5th International Conference on Welding Technologies and Exhibition (ICWET'18)

Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina

Welding technology is an important technology that involves the joining of two or more pieces of metal or thermoplastics together in order to form a single piece. This technology is applied to many of processes in the manufacturing industries and their products, such as automobiles, vessels, ships, airplanes, bridges, pipelines, etc. All welding techniques are continuously growing and new welding methods, welding, and the characterization of new materials are being investigated in order to satisfy new demands and needs from customers. The welding industry is continuously looking for a way to increase and improve the welding method, process efficiency, and welded joint reliability. Thus, major producers, scientists, engineers, and researchers have gathered at the ICWET18 event ( in order to share their preoccupations, challenges, and possible solutions. This 5th International Conference on Welding Technologies and Exhibition (ICWET18) is one of a series, held regularly, at two-years intervals.

1–3 April 2019 9th International Symposium on Fretting Fatigue (ISFF9)

University of Seville, Spain

The 9th International Symposium on Fretting Fatigue (ISFF9) will be held in the city of Seville (Spain) from April 1st to 3rd, 2019. The objective of this symposium is to share the latest developments in the field of fretting fatigue/wear by scientists and engineers from all over the world. This is the 9th edition in a series of successful symposiums dedicated to this topic held every three years. The main topics of the ISFF9 are the following:

  • Experimental results in fretting fatigue/wear
  • Theories and mechanisms of fretting fatigue/wear
  • Modelling in fretting fatigue/wear
  • Applications and case studies
  • Palliatives against fretting fatigue/wear

Also, different types of points of view should contribute to the conference, from academic and industrial practitioners, building a bridge between these areas of expertise.
