ECCOMAS Thematic Conference

CM3 is the 1st of the series of ECCOMAS Thematic Conferences organized by the ECCOMAS Industrial Interest Group (IIG).

ECCOMAS is the European Community on Computational Methods in Applied Sciences. Further information can be found:


Multidisciplinary Scientific Computing is now one of the powerful design technologies used in industry. This trend has been enhanced by the ever increasing capabilities of computational technology, storing of information and the decreasing cost of computer hardware. Analysis of Multidisciplinary Big Data is also becoming extremely important in process control, intelligent systems for surveillance and safety procedures.

In the upcoming decade the integration of Advanced Multidisciplinary Simulation (MS), Optimization (MO) and Big Data Analysis (MBDA) tools will have a major impact on systemic procedures in both industrial and societal environments.

Opportunities offered by Multi Physics, Multi Scales and Multi Big Data (CM3) methods span the industrial spectrum, including greener technologies for automotive, aerospace, marine and maritime, energy, train, road logistics, among other sectors. In all these multidisciplinary areas industrial designers are faced with greener challenges targeted in the new ambitious Horizon 2020 program.

To answer these green challenges and their innovative solutions the new ECCOMAS Industrial Interest Group (IIG) is launching the first of an ECCOMAS Thematic Conference series focused on Challenging Transportation named CM3 – Computational Multi Physics, Multi Scales and Multi Big Data in Transport Modeling, Simulation and Optimization with applications in Automotive, Railways, Aeronautics and Maritime Engineering.

Format of the Conference

The format of the CM3 event will include Plenary and Semi-Plenary lectures, Keynote presentations, Mini-symposiums, contributed papers, poster session, and dissemination of EC projects. Moreover, we will organize Special Technology Round Table Sessions (STS) for each major application of the conference. The focus of the CM3 is to bring together scientists and technologists involved in surface, air and waterborne transport to discuss innovative multidisciplinary methods and tools for mastering green challenges of transport applications.
