The main event organized by ECCOMAS is a large European Congress taking place on a four year cycle and addressing scientists and engineers both in and outside Europe. The main objective of these conferences is to provide a forum for presentation and discussion of state-of-the-art in scientific computing applied to engineering sciences. Equal emphasis is given to basic methodologies, scientific development and industrial applications. The ECCOMAS Congress includes invited lectures, invited Special Technological Sessions (STS), contributed papers from Academy and Industry and organized Minisymposia. Proceedings of the ECCOMAS Congresses are widely disseminated in Europe.
The previous ECCOMAS Congresses were held in Brussels, Belgium (1992), Paris, France (1996), Barcelona, Spain (2000), Jyväskylä, Finland (2004), Venice , Italy (2008) in conjunction with the WCCM of IACM, Vienna, Austria (2012).
The VII European Congress on Computational Methods in Applied Sciences and Engineering took place in Crete, Greece, on June 5 - 10, 2016.
