IUTAM’s Congress Committee

The task of the IUTAM Congress Committee, as defined in IUTAM’s statutes, is the organization of the International Congresses of Theoretical and Applied Mechanics (ICTAM). The members of the Congress Committee (listed below) are appointed by the General Assembly as scientists active in theoretical or applied mechanics and need not be members of the General Assembly. The President of IUTAM serves also as President of the Congress Committee. The Congress Committee appoints a secretary, without stated terms of office. The Congress Committee may appoint an Executive Committee to take all necessary actions on its behalf in the period between two successive Congresses, and to report to it at its next meeting. This Executive Committee consists of the President, the Secretary, and one or more members appointed by the Congress Committee. The actual organization of a Congress is delegated to a local Organizing Committee, which is elected by the host country or host organization.
