ADMOS 2021

10th International Conference On Adaptive Modeling and Simulation

Gothenburg, Sweden

21 - 23 June, 2021


We would like to invite you to participate in the 10th International Conference on Adaptive Modeling and Simulation (ADMOS 2021), which will be held 21-23 June 2021, at Chalmers University of Technology, Gothenburg, Sweden.

Numerical Modeling and Simulation are increasingly used as a complementary tool to Experimental Modeling and Analysis and as a design or certification tool in engineering applications. However, after more than thirty years of scientific investigation around Adaptive Modeling and Simulation, the problem of properly assessing and controlling the quality of the numerical solutions still represents a relevant issue in the scientific community. Nowadays, it is well-established that a certain maturity has been reached in this context, as well as calculations for industrial applications can be verified and error bounds can be provided in many cases. Nevertheless, the design of sophisticated engineering systems requires increasingly complex and coupled modeling and verification tools are still lacking in these cases. Furthermore, new challenges characterize the actual industrial demands, such as fast calculations for real-time decision making, design optimization, inverse analysis, simulation-based control, in particular in the presence of uncertainty.

The main goal of ADMOS 2021 is to provide a forum for presenting and discussing the current state-of-the-art achievements on Adaptive Modeling and Simulation, including theoretical models, numerical methods, algorithmic strategies and challenging engineering applications.

ADMOS 2021 is jointly organized by Chalmers University of Technology, Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya and CIMNE and it is promoted by the European Committee in Solids and Structural Mechanics (ECSSM) of ECCOMAS. ADMOS is one of the conferences that launched the ECCOMAS series of thematic conferences. The previous editions were held successively in Göteborg in 2003, Barcelona in 2005, Göteborg in 2007, Bruxelles in 2009, Paris in 2011, Lisbon in 2013, Nantes in 2015, in Verbania, Italy in 2017 and in El Campello (Alicante) in 2019.

We look forward to receiving your abstracts and welcoming you to Gothenburg in June 2021.

Conference Venue

Welcome to Gothenburg!

About Chalmers

ADMOS 2021 will take place in Gothenburg, Sweden, at Chalmers University of Technology. Chalmers University of Technology is a Swedish university that focuses on research and education in technology, natural sciences, architecture, maritime and management areas. Chalmers is located on two campuses: Johanneberg in the city centre, and Lindholmen in the middle of the expansive Norra Älvstranden (north of the river). Chalmers also conducts research at Onsala Space Observatory 45 km south of Gothenburg. The university is named after its major benefactor, William Chalmers, one of the directors of the successful Swedish East India Company in Gothenburg. Chalmers University of Technology was founded in 1829 through the will of William Chalmers.

Host City – Gothenburg

Gothenburg blends a distinct feeling of charm with the pulse of modern urban life and creative atmosphere. The city is in the middle of an exciting period of infrastructural and content development and is also filled with flourishing gardens, historic sites and buildings, and magnificent museums. The tram-rattled streets are lined with cosy cafés and restaurants, some of them internationally renowned for their haute cuisine. Gothenburg is also home to Scandinavia’s largest amusement park and with a location on the Swedish west coast you will be on a ferry in less than 30 minutes from the downtown area to explore the tranquil archipelago.

Gothenburg celebrates 400 years!

Gothenburg has been an international city since it was founded in 1621 and in fact, next year Gothenburg celebrates 400 years!
For almost 400 years Gothenburg has looked outwards toward the sea and the world beyond. Our city was built and planned by Dutch and Germans. As a maritime city of trade and industry we have fostered close relationships and been able to exchange skills with many other countries. International contacts, outside influences and people from different cultures have always been an asset to Gothenburg, and still are today. We are a sustainable city that is open to the world

The accessible city

Gothenburg is an open and accessible city. It offers almost everything you would expect of a cosmopolitan city – within walking distance. All you need is right in the city and you can get everywhere on foot – from the Central Station to your hotel, to the arenas, shopping, restaurants and nightlife. But it´s not just close to everything; it´s also easy to get here. The international airport is just 20 minutes from the city centre and you can get direct flights here from more than 65 European cities.
Today, Greater Gothenburg is home to 970,000 people from almost every country on the planet. It is they who give the city its soul, its pulse and its unique atmosphere. In Sweden Gothenburg have a reputation for their friendliness and hospitality, and many who visit the city for the first time can attest to just how welcoming it feels.


Gothenburg has sustainability in its DNA and is a four-year consecutive winner for the world’s most sustainable meeting city according to the Global Sustainability Index.
It is easy to organise a sustainable meeting in Gothenburg. With world-class and internationally recognised green system solutions in place and with great experience in making major events sustainable and accessible Gothenburg strives to minimise any negative impact on people and the environment.

Knowledge is power

Gothenburg is one of Sweden’s foremost innovation environments. Universities, science parks and research institutes are based here and there is a strong commitment and a well-developed collaboration between academia, the public sector and the business sector.
