The main event organized by ECCOMAS is its biennial European Congress, providing a rendezvous for scientists and engineers from within Europe and around the globe. The main objective of these congresses is to provide a forum for presentation and discussion of state-of-the-art developments in scientific computing applied to engineering sciences. Equal emphasis is given to basic methodologies, scientific development and industrial applications.
The ECCOMAS Congress includes invited lectures, invited Special Technological Sessions (STS), contributed papers from Academy and Industry and organized Minisymposia. Proceedings of the ECCOMAS Congresses are widely disseminated in Europe.
ECCOMAS Congress 2024 (9th European Congress on Computational Methods in Applied Sciences and Engineering) will take place on the 3-7 June 2024 in Lisbon, Portugal.

Rules for nomination and selection of Plenary and Semi-Plenary Lecturers on Congresses and Conferences. One half of the Plenary and Semi-plenary speakers are disposed by the MB and one half by the local organizers of an ECCOMAS congress or conference. For congresses or conferences jointly organized with other associations, e.g. WCCM, corresponding rules have to be applied.
For the selection of speakers nominated by the MB, an ad-hoc Voting Committee (VC) will be appointed by the MB. The VC consists of 5 representatives selected by the MB, which are not eligible to be candidates for a plenary or semi-plenary speaker. The VC collects nominations from the core groups of the Technical Committees and makes the final decision. The VC informs core groups and MB on its decision.
The MB can provide guidelines regarding the selection criteria, e.g. scientific field, quality, geographical region, age (involvement of young scientists), gender, etc., but the MB should not make pre-decisions.
If the nominations of the core groups do not reflect a sufficient representation of the underlying criteria, the VC is eligible to add further candidates in consultation with the core groups of the Technical Committees.
