In the upcoming decade the integration of Advanced Multidisciplinary Simulation (MS), Optimization
(MO) and Big Data Analysis (MBDA) tools will have a major impact on systemic procedures in both industrial and societal
environments linked to Smart, Green and Integrated Transport Challenges including the infrastructure and the services,
with an impact to the Society‘s needs priorities.
Multidisciplinary Scientific Computing is now one of the powerful design technologies used in industry.
This trend has been enhanced by the ever increasing capabilities of computational technology, storing of information
and the decreasing cost of computer hardware. Analysis of Multidisciplinary Big Data is also becoming extremely
important in process control, intelligent systems for surveillance and safety procedures.
Opportunities offered by Multi Physics, Multi Scales and Multi Big Data (CM3) methods span the industrial spectrum,
including greener technologies for Aerospace, Automotive, Logistics, Marine and Maritime, Rail, among other sectors.
In all these multidisciplinary areas industrial designers are faced with greener Transport challenges with their key
objectives targeted in the ambitious Horizon 2020 program: sustainable Transport; seamless Transport and competitive
To answer these green challenges and their innovative solutions the new ECCOMAS Industrial Interest Group (IIG)
is organizing in Brussels the second of an ECCOMAS Thematic Conference series focused on the Transport Challenges
named CM3. A large participation of SMEs, Industries and European Technology platforms for Aviation Research,
Road Transport Research, Rail Research, Waterborne Research and Logistics Innovation and as well as academy
institutions is expected attending the CM3 2017 Conference, hosted by EC- DG Research and Innovation.
CM3 2017 is the 2nd of the series of ECCOMAS Thematic Conferences organized by the ECCOMAS Industrial
Interest Group (IIG) and part of the dissemination of the H2020 E-CAero2 project.
