Previous Conference


4th International Congress
on Computational Engineering and Sciences

Las Vegas, May 19 - 24, 2013

May 25:
FEMTEC 2013 has finished! The organizers thank you very much for participating, and we wish you a great Summer. The winning poster by P. Brambilla and A. Guardone can be found here. The deadline for submission to the special issue of JCAM is 30th September 2013, but we encourage you to submit your paper earlier. Format your paper as a standard JCAM paper (18 - 20 pages maximum). Please use the JCAM online submission system, and select "FEMTEC 2013" as the paper type. Please make sure to suggest reliable referees in the corresponding part of the submission form.
May 5:
Preliminary program has been posted (PDF).
Book of Abstracts can be downloaded from here.

FEMTEC 2013 is the 4th event in a successful series of interdisciplineary international conferences. It promotes modern technologies and practices in scientific computing and visualization, and strengthens the interaction between researchers and practitioners in various areas of computational engineering and sciences.

2013 themes

Main thematic areas for 2013 include: Interdisciplinary computational projects, Multiphysics coupled problems, Higher-order computational methods, GPU computing, Cloud computing, Computing with Python and Octave, Open source projects.

Application areas

Theoretical results as well as applications are welcome. Application areas include, but are not limited to: Computational electromagnetics, Civil engineering, Nuclear engineering, Mechanical engineering, Nonlinear dynamics, Fluid dynamics, Climate and weather modeling, Computational ecology, Wave propagation, Acoustics, Geophysics, Geomechanics and rock mechanics, Hydrology, Subsurface modeling, Biomechanics, Bioinformatics, Computational chemistry, Stochastic differential equations, Uncertainty quantification, and others.


Minisymposia proposals are welcome. A minisymposium should consist of at least four lectures related to the same topic. If you are interested in organizing a minisymposium, please send a title, short abstract, and list of speakers to femtec2013(at)femhub(dot)com. List of minisymposia.


Best Best Poster will be awarded with a diploma and a prize during a ceremony to take place on Thursday, May 22. All student presentations and all posters are automatically nominated. The selection will be done by a vote of all participants.

Software afternoon

Important part of each FEMTEC conference is a software afternoon featuring computational software projects of participants. Presented can be any computational software that has reached certain level of maturity, i.e., it is used outside of the author's institution, and it has a web page and a user documentation. If you would like to present your software project, let us know soon.


Proceedings of FEMTEC 2013 will appear in Journal of Applied and Computational Mathematics (JCAM), an international journal with impact factor.
