During the past decades, material modelling has become a field of central scientific importance. Although there exist many workshops, meetings, colloquia, etc. on specific materials and particular applications, the ICCM series of events is unique in that it dedicates itself to material modelling with all its various facets. The broad scope of the event provides the opportunity for interaction between scientists working in different subareas of material mechanics who otherwise would not come into contact with each other.
ICCM7 will take place at the Breakwater Campus of the University of Cape Town, the leading university in Africa and one of the top research universities worldwide. The UCT Breakwater Campus is situated in the V&A Waterfront, the most visited tourist attraction on the African continent and offers a modern conference centre and ample opportunities for accommodation and entertainment.
