Nordic Association for Computational Mechanics (NoACM) represents the interest for the Nordic countries: Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway, Sweden, and the Baltic countries: Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania in the European Community on Computational Methods in Applied Sciences (ECCOMAS) and the International Association for Computational Mechanics (IACM). NoACM was founded in 1988.

The objective of the NoACM shall be to stimulate and promote research and practice in computational mechanics, to foster the interchange of ideas among the various fields contributing to computational mechanics and to provide forums and meetings for dissemination of knowledge about computational mechanics.

We are very pleased that ECCOMAS has selected Oslo as the venue for its 7th ECCM conference. The conference organising committee has been working very hard both to secure the conference, and then even harder to put in place an outstanding programme of academic and social events which play to the strengths of Oslo and Norway. I am sure you will not be disappointed.
