ECCOMAS Young Investigators Conference YIC2021

The 6th ECCOMAS Young Investigators Conference YIC2021 will take place from July 7th through 9th, 2021 at Universitat Politècnica de València, Spain. The main objective is to bring together in a relaxed environment young students, researchers, and professors from all areas related to computational science and engineering, as in the previous YIC conferences series organized under the auspices of the European Community on Computational Methods in Applied Sciences (ECCOMAS). Participation of senior scientists sharing their knowledge and experience is thus critical for this event.

YIC 2021 is organized at Universitat Politécnica de València by the Sociedad Española de Métodos Numéricos en Ingeniería (SEMNI) and the Sociedad Española de Matemática Aplicada (SEMA). It is promoted by the ECCOMAS.

The main goal of the YIC 2021 conference is to provide a forum for presenting and discussing the current state-of-the-art achievements on Computational Methods and Applied Sciences, including theoretical models, numerical methods, algorithmic strategies, and challenging engineering applications.

YIC is the conference that launched the ECCOMAS focused on Young researchers of thematic conferences. It is a medium-size conference (an average of 130-170 delegates) which allows for dynamic and fruitful exchanges between the participants.

ECCOMAS Ph.D. Olympiad will take place during the Conference.

COVID-19: We look forward to welcoming you to Valencia next July 2021. However, if the COVID-19 situation persists, we are considering a hybrid or online configuration for the conference. The final decision will be made before the early-bird registration.
