Symposia & Summer Schools

Every two years the IUTAM General Assembly decides on the list of IUTAM-sponsored Symposia and instructional Summer Schools. The Assembly calls upon the advice of the Symposia Panels.

Proposals for Symposia and Summer Schools are made through the General Assembly members, the Adhering Organizations and the Affiliated Organizations.

Prospective IUTAM Symposia and Summer Schools organizers are asked to submit a Proposal online.

The IUTAM Symposia are reserved to invited participants. Those wishing to participate in an IUTAM Symposium are therefore advised to contact the Chairman of the Scientific Committee in due time in advance of the meeting.

From 2011 to 2017, Elsevier Procedia IUTAM has been the preferred publisher of the refereed proceedings of the IUTAM Symposia. From 2018, if the organizers of a Symposium decide to publish proceedings, the recommended form of publication is the IUTAM Bookseries by Springer.

The IUTAM Symposia Panels

In 1977 the IUTAM Bureau set up two panels charged with the duty of scanning proposals made for IUTAM Symposia in the fields of fluid and solid mechanics. In 1992 that duty was extended to include scanning of proposals for IUTAM Summer Schools. The following members of the fluids panel and the solids panel have been elected for the period 2016 – 2018.
