Due to the worldwide situation with Covid-19, the conference organizers have decided that this edition of PARTICLES 2021 will be held in a hybrid mode.
The format of the conference will follow precisely that of a standard in-person event. The conference will be organized in sessions including 5-6 papers each. The same format will be followed by Invited Sessions that could include a Keynote presentation.
Sessions will comprise a mixture of in-person and online presentations:
Authors attending in-person will present their papers as usual on the conference site. These presentations will be live streamed via the conference web platform to those not present on-site.
Authors attending the conference online only will be expected to present their paper live online at the allocated time in their session.
PARTICLES 2021 will address both the fundamental basis and the applicability of state-of-the-art particle-based computational methods that can be effectively used for solving a variety of problems in engineering and applied sciences.
PARTICLES 2021 will aim to cover both concepts of particle-based techniques, because of their strong interrelation both in the computation and application points of view.
PARTICLES 2021 will be dedicated to the memory of professor D. Roger J. Owen.who passed away on January 13 2020. Prof Owen was an eminent scientist in the field of computational mechanics. He was also one of the founders of the PARTICLES conference and co-chair of its first editions.
The conference is one of the Thematic Conferences of the European Community on Computational Methods in Applied Sciences (ECCOMAS) and a Special Interest Conference of the International Association for Computational Mechanics (IACM). It is also supported by other scientific organizations in Europe and worldwide.
