IUTAM Symposium on innovative numerical approaches for materials and structures in multi-field and multi-scale problems

September 1-4, 2014 at Burg Schnellenberg near Cologne (North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany)

We thank all the participants for their valuable contributions. The friendship and fellow-feeling felt during the symposium inspired the idea to collect the presentations of some of the present researchers in a special book. Our choice was to organize a book as part of the series Lecture Notes in Applied and Computational Mechanics (LNACM), entitled Innovative Numerical Approaces for Multi-Field and Multi-Scale Problems. It will appear at Springer in July 2016.

How to get there?

  • The venue is a Castle and can be reached at best by car. Next regional train station is Finnentrop. Main train stations nearby are Cologne, Dortmund or Hagen. The next airports are Cologne Bonn Airport and Frankfurt Airport. Neither from Cologne nor from Frankfurt to Attendorn are direct train or bus connections.  There will be, of course, taxis. We think to organize a 'shuttle service' in a sense, that we pre-book a taxi or minibus  which collects several people of the symposium to share the costs. If you are interested, please send us your time of arrival at: IUTAM(at)uni-siegen.de
  • If you prefer to go by train, you may find connections at bahn.de; we would recommend to go to Finnetrop and then take a taxi.
  • If type into google maps 'Burghotel Schnellenberg' you find a map of the location. 

 Some more details:

  • The symposium room in the conference venue will be equipped with a Computer (Windows;VGA), LCD projector, laser pointer and microphone.
  • Poster size should be A0 (portrait, i.e., 84x119cm) or any other format with at most 90cm width. 
  • A get together with medieval music and a corresponding meal is planned in the evening of Tuesday September 2nd, opened to all symposium participants.


We thank our colleagues who accepted to attend the IUTAM on the occasion of M.Ortiz’ 60th birthday. For an enjoyable stay we ask you for an "all inclusive" conference fee. The fee includes symposium material, lodging with full meals at the castle Burg Schnellenberg, a featured Medieval Social Event, and a book of Abstracts of the symposium contributions.
