Minisymposium Proposal Submissions

WCCM2024 is now accepting proposals for minisymposia. The Congress Organizers have identified 19 Focus Areas listed below for the scientific content of the congress. However, proposals from any area of computational mechanics may be submitted.  If you do not find a focus area that fits your proposal, submit it under "Other" (2000). You will need to submit your proposal online by August 31. If you have any questions, write to us at
