ANNOUNCEMENT AND CALL FOR ABSTRACTS. 17th ANNUAL SYMPOSIUM on COMPUTATIONAL METHODS IN ORTHOPAEDIC BIOMECHANICS, http://www.pre-ORS.org, Saturday, February 21st, 2009, University of Nevada, Las Vegas, Las Vegas, Nevada.
Online Registration & Abstract Submission Deadline: December 8, 2008
Deadline for abstracts is March 15, 2009.
The conference will provide a forum for presentation and discussion of innovative complex models and methods for computer based simulation of dynamical processes in mechanics. Applications from solid mechanics, fluid mechanics, biomechanics, thermomechanics, and material sciences are welcome. The Conference will mark also 10 years of activities of the Centre for Nonlinear Studies – CENS. During the last decade, the complexity of wave fields in solids and fluids has been one of the focal issues in CENS. One of the key speakers at the Conference will be Prof. Jüri Engelbrecht, the Head of CENS, who will celebrate in 2009 his 70th anniversary.
Call for papers (abstract dealine: 28 Feb, 2009):

Hello from Adelaide, Australia. I'm at the IUTAM Congress. The big news today: the 2012 IUTAM Congress will be held in Beijing. The Chinese delegates made a brilliant bidding. Among promised items are good food, low registration fee (which will pay for all lunches), National Conference Center in the Olympic Village, and a tour to the Great Wall (which is also included in the registration fee). So start planning for the trip.
Professor Bai Yilong, of the Cinhese Academy of Sciences, will chair the 2012 Congress.
