Congress & Symposia

The International Congress in Theoretical and Applied Mechanics (ICTAM) holds a large international meeting every 4 years, and this is organised by the IUTAM Congress Committee and an executive committee appointed from within its ranks. The Secretary of the Congress Committee is a member of the GMM.

IUTAM sponsors a number of Symposia and Summer Schools each year. Recommendations for those Symposia and Summer Schools that should receive IUTAM sponsorship are made by two Symposium Panels. The two persons who serve as Chairs of the Symposium Panels are members of the GMM.
