Nordic Association for Computational Mechanics (NoACM) represents the interest for the Nordic countries: Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway, Sweden, and the Baltic countries: Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania in the European Community on Computational Methods in Applied Sciences (ECCOMAS) and the International Association for Computational Mechanics (IACM). NoACM was founded in 1988.
The objective of the NoACM shall be to stimulate and promote research and practice in computational mechanics, to foster the interchange of ideas among the various fields contributing to computational mechanics and to provide forums and meetings for dissemination of knowledge about computational mechanics.
The Nordic Seminar on Computational Mechanics (NSCM) is organised annually by the NoACM and the first event was held at Chalmers University in Gothenburg, Sweden in 1988.
The overall mission for the NSCM-meetings are to be a meeting place for researchers developing computational methods and scientists and engineers focusing on challenging applications in broad aspects of mechanics. In particular, presentations by graduate students are welcomed. Thus, making a friendly and creative atmosphere for the participants is considered important.
