Weimar, Germany

From July 4 till 6, 2012 the 19-th International Conference on the Applications of Computer Science and Mathematics in Architecture and Civil Engineering is going to take place at the Bauhaus University Weimar. Architects, computer scientists, mathematicians, engineers, designers, planners, project managers and software developers from all over the world will meet in Weimar for an interdisciplinary exchange of experiences to report and to discuss on their results in research, development and practice. The conference offers several main topics. Plenary lectures and thematic parallel sessions are planned.
We invite you to participate in the work of the IKM 2012 and to present here some of your latest results or developments.

The following topics will be covered in the conference sessions:

  1. Coupled Problems in Engineering
  2. Inverse Modeling in Civil Engineering and Architecture
  3. Function Theoretic Methods and Partial Differential Equations
  4. Geometric Algebras and Applications
  5. Modelling and Simulation in Building Physics

Suggestions for further emphasis, round table discussions and software
presentations are welcome. It is expected that a thematic session should have at least 10-12 participants.
