 Année de la Mécanique 2021-22



The Computational Structural Mechanics Association (CSMA) federates the French community of the computational structural mechanics and organises every two years, since 1993, in the peninsula of Giens, Var, the National Conference in calculation of the structures.

This conference brings together researchers, theoreticians, numericians, software developers and industrialists to make the state of the art on the major axes and emerging themes of the field.

The presentations will take place in the context of thematic sessions and specific symposia. Papers will be presented orally or by poster.

Registration will begin in the morning of May 16, 2021 and the conference will begin at 02:00 PM

5th Workshop CSMA Juniors 14-16 mai 2022

La section CSMA Juniors de jeunes chercheuses et chercheurs de l’association CSMA organisera son 5ème Workshop en amont du CSMA 2022. Il aura lieu cette année dans le centre IGESA situé sur l’Ile de Porquerolles, et sur deux jours (du samedi 14/05 midi au lundi 16/05 midi).

Comme à son habitude, le workshop sera un lieu d’échanges privilégiés et proposera des activités utiles et inédites pour la jeune génération du CSMA. Le programme comportera, de façon similaire à ce qui avait été proposé en 2019, un ensemble de mini-cours (partie théorique + mise en œuvre numérique) liés aux 6 thèmes du congrès CSMA.

La jeune génération (< 40 ans) du CSMA est donc fortement encouragée à s’inscrire à ce workshop.

Software session

The 15th edition of the conference will feature the Wednesday night software session to present your new software developments, whether open source or commercial, to the French computational structural mechanics community.
A demonstration area will be available for participants to present their software.

The presentation at the software session follows the same reviewing process as regular contributions. It will be based on both the technical quality of the extended abstract, the highlighted innovative aspects and the interest for the computational structural mechanics community.
The Word, OpenOffice and LaTeX templates are available in the Instruction to Authors section.
To submit your abstract for the software session, go to the Submit section and select the "Software" theme.
As for regular contributions, access to the software session requires a complete registration, including access to conferences, proceedings of the conference, accommodation and full board accommodation (Monday midday to Friday noon), coffee breaks, Thursday night banquet and the boat trip to Porquerolles.
