4th International Conference on Computational Engineering (ICCE 2017)

The International Conference on Computational Engineering (ICCE) took place from Thursday, September 28, to Friday, September 29, 2017. The conferecne provided a meeting place for researchers and practitioners working on computational methods in all disciplines of engineering and applied mathematics, with a special focus on doctoral researchers and young scientists. The aim of the conference was to discuss the state of the art in this challenging field, develop promising perspectives for future research and initiate cooperations.

A lot of AICES members were part of the conference. AICES Scientific Advisory Board member Prof. Max Gunzburger and Professor Dr. Manuel Torrilhon were invited to give a talk at the conference.

The conference was organized by the Graduate School of Computational Engineering (GSC CE) at TU Darmstadt together with the International Graduate School of Science and Engineering (IGSSE) at Technical University of Munich, the Stuttgart Research Center for Simulation Technology (SimTech) at University of Stuttgart and the Aachen Institute for Advanced Study in Computational Engineering Science (AICES) at RWTH Aachen University.
