Under the auspices of the Indian Association for Computational Mechanics (IndACM), International
Congress on Computational Mechanics and Simulation (ICCMS) is organized biennially. The
Association was founded on 1st January 2000 and has about 200 life members. The objective was to
bring together people having common interest and have free exchange of views in the area of
computational mechanics through meetings/seminars/conferences/symposia to promote
development of computational mechanics as a branch of science and engineering. Computational
Mechanics, being an interdisciplinary domain of mechanics, involving mathematical models of
physical real-life problems and their solutions, the congress is typically attended by delegates with
background in civil engineering, mechanical engineering, aerospace engineering, materials
engineering/science, physics, mathematics and other disciplines. IIT Kanpur, IIT Guwahati, IIT
Bombay and other top ranking institutes of the country, have organized the previous conferences.
With the strong academic and industrial push, already in place, in areas such as computational
mechanics (FEA/ CAE) for analysis and computational geometry (CAD/CAM) for design and
manufacturing, IndACM would be focusing on promoting new areas, which may become the
potential enablers of growth for the country.
