Previous meetings in the COMPLAS series were held in Barcelona in 1987, 1989, 1992, 1995, 1997, 2000 2003, 2005 and 2007. COMPLAS 2007 attracted some 300 participants.

COMPLAS X will address both the theoretical bases for the solution of plasticity problems and the numerical algorithms necessary for efficient and robust computer implementation.

The ability to provide numerical simulations for increasingly complex problems is advancing rapidly due to both remarkable strides in computer hardware development and the improved maturity of computational procedures for non-linear systems. Significant advances have been made in the formulation and implementation of algorithms for static and dynamic problems involving finite strains, complex contact interaction laws, constitutive material behaviours including multi-physics or multi-scale effects, progressive large scale fracturing, etc.. Such advances, however, demand a closer interaction between numerical analysts and material scientists in order to produce theoretical models which provide a response in keeping with fundamental material principles and experimental observations.

Numerical techniques, and in particular finite element and discrete element methods, are now extensively employed in non-linear deformation predictions and very often offer the only means of solution for practical engineering problems. It is therefore essential to ascertain that such techniques can be reliably employed in industrial and R&D applications.

COMPLAS X aims to act as a forum for practitioners in the field to discuss recent advances and identify future research directions.

Sessions related to specific topics of the conference will be introduced by a Keynote Lecture in the field. These Keynote Lectures will be complemented by Invited Sessions organised by recognised experts in targeted research areas, as well as by contributed papers received from the general Call for Papers.
