The 8th GACM Colloquium on Computational Mechanics (GACM 2019) will be organized on 28. - 30. August 2019 in Kassel, Germany. The colloquium is hosted by the Institute for Mechanics and Dynamics of the department for civil and environmental engineering and by the Institute for technical and continuum mechanics of the department for mechanical engineering of the University of Kassel. The previous seven conferences of this series were held in Bochum (2005), Munich (2007), Hannover (2009), Dresden (2011), Hamburg (2013), Aachen (2015) and Stuttgart (2017).

The GACM Colloquium on Computational Mechanics intends to bring together young scientists who are engaged in academic and industrial research on Computational Mechanics and Computer Methods in Applied Sciences. It provides a platform to present and discuss recent results from research efforts and industrial applications.

The organized mini-symposia and a poster session, as well as social events, will provide an environment for lively discussions in an informal atmosphere. The contributions from young researchers will be supplemented by plenary lectures from four senior scientists from academia and industry as well as from the GACM Best Ph.D. Award winners 2017 and 2018. In addition, there will be a poster session including a plenary poster-flash. All submitted posters are eligible for the GACM Best Poster Award.

Young scientists from Europe and all other continents are welcome to this colloquium. Presentations will be given in English.
