The US National Congress on Computational Mechanics (USNCCM) returns to the great city of Austin, TX for the 15th biennial congress of the US Association of Computational Mechanics (USACM). This congress will be held at the new JW Marriott Hotel in downtown Austin from. We anticipate participation from computational engineers and scientists worldwide from government, academia, and industry. The congress will feature plenary and semi-plenary speakers, several honorary mini-symposia, more than seventy-five organized mini-symposia with keynote lectures and contributed talks and exhibits from various sponsors.
Austin has experienced major population growth since USNCCM7 was held here in 2005, spurred by the relocation and expansion of many technology companies in the area along with the continued overall desirability of Austin, the “Live Music Capital of the World”, as the political and cultural capital of Texas. Every night in Austin more than 100 local musicians of all genres take the stage, hence the city's moniker; many of these locations are within walking distance of the congress venue. Additionally, Austin has become a national culinary destination city with hundreds of world-class restaurants within walking distance of JW Marriott. Austin’s landscape has immense natural beauty, with popular hiking and biking trails along nearby Lady Bird Lake.
We are expecting a wonderful congress and hope you’ll join us for some Texas hospitality in Austin.
