The History

Theodore von Karman and his sister Josephine organised a highly successful conference in Innsbruck in September 1922 on hydrodynamics and aerodynamics. Its success led them to suggest an International Congress spanning the whole domain of applied mechanics: the first ICTAM was in 1924 in Delft, The Netherlands.
