PhD ECCOMAS Olympiad

The 10th PhD ECCOMAS Olympiad will be organized in the framework of the joint 14th World Congress in Computational Mechanics and ECCOMAS Congress.

Previous ECCOMAS PhD Olympiads were held in Athens (2011), Aveiro (2012), Bordeaux (2013), Barcelona (2014), Aachen (2015), Crete (2016), Milano (2017), Glasgow (2018) and Krakow (Poland).

The purpose of the ECCOMAS PhD Olympiads is to present the best PhD Theses approved by a University or Research Organization in Europe during the previous year and to act as a forum for exchanging new ideas, disseminating recent developments in the fields of ECCOMAS and sharing common research interests among young investigators. Every National or Regional Association affiliated to ECCOMAS is represented by a number of selected PhDs submitted for consideration for the two ECCOMAS PhD Awards.
