The Congress on Numerical Methods in Engineering takes place biennially and is jointly organized by the Spanish Society on Numerical Methods in Engineering (SEMNI, Spain) and the “Associação Portuguesa de Mecânica Teórica, Aplicada e Computacional" (APMTAC, Portugal). The 2017 edition will take place in the "Campus de Vera" of the Technical University of Valencia (UPV). It will be a meeting point to researchers and technicians of both countries, as well as the Latin American community.
Previous joint congresses of both societies were celebrated in Madrid (2002), Lisbon (2004), Granada (2005), Porto (2007), Barcelona (2009), Coimbra (2011), Bilbao (2013) and Lisbon (2015).
The Spanish Association for Numerical Methods in Engineering (SEMNI) emerged in 1989 with the aim of bringing together researchers, professionals, companies and institutions interested in the development and practical applications of numerical methods.
The main objectives of SEMNI are to promote, foster, organize and coordinate activities related to numerical methods and their applications in engineering. SEMNI particularly commits to representing the Spanish interests in the organization of international conferences organized by IACM and ECCOMAS, and regularly organizing the Congress on Numerical Methods in Spain.
The “Associação Portuguesa de Mecânica Teórica, Aplicada e Computacional“is constituted by a group of researchers, that develop there work in the scientific domain of the theoretical, applied and computational mechanics. The Spanish Association for Numerical Methods in Engineering (SEMNI) emerged in 1989 with the aim of bringing together researchers, professionals, companies and institutions interested in the development and practical applications of numerical methods.
Within its regular activity, APMTAC promotes several events for divulgation and scientific interchange, stimulating the area of education and research in mechanics.
The Technical University of Valencia (UPV), created in 1971, is a public institution, dynamic and innovative, devoted to research and teaching. While keeping strong links to its social setting, the University also has a strong international presence.
The University community currently includes over 42,000 members: some 37,800 people are students, 2,600 are teachers and 1,700 are administrative and service personnel. Fifteen university centers including 40 university degrees, 76 masters and 28 PhD programs constitute the UPV.
The UPV is a University of confirmed quality, recognized as one of the best Spanish universities in the international rankings. Its campus has modern facilities and excellent services.
