African Conference on Computational Mechanics (AfriComp) is an event series with the main objective of creating a forum for researchers and students on the African continent to interact with members of the computational mechanics community from across the globe.
Hence, the conference series is viewed as a key initiative aimed to promote computational mechanics in Africa.
AfriComp conference was previously held in Sun City (South Africa) and subsequently in Cape Town (South Africa), Livingstone (Zambia), and Marrakech (Morocco).
Details of the Event
This conference will be the fifth series by AfriComp and will hold again in Cape Town and the University of Cape Town will be in charge of the conference as a joint event in conjunction with the 12th South African Conference on Computational and Applied Mechanics (SACAM2020) under the auspices of the South African Association for Theoretical and Applied Mechanics (SAAM), the European Community on Computational Methods in Applied Sciences (ECCOMAS), and also the International Association for Computational Mechanics (IACM).
No doubt, Cape Town itself is South Africa’s oldest city and closest to the southern tip of the African continent which makes it a good spot for the event.
Date: Nov 29 – Dec 1 2021
Time: 9:00am – 6:00pm daily
Estimated Turnout: Based on past delegates, expectations are between 100 – 500 participants.
