The United States Association for Computational Mechanics (USACM) will host the 11th U.S. National Congress on Computational Mechanics (USNCCM-11) July 25-29, 2011 in Minneapolis, Minnesota. USACM is a member of the International Association for Computational Mechanics (IACM), a world-wide organization with over 30 affiliated organization representing 35 countries.
The USNCCM-11 Organizing Committee is soliciting participants in our Sponsorship and Exhibitors Program. Based on the attendance at recent National Congresses, we expect over 1200 participants, drawn from industry, academia and government with an approximate split of 15% from industry, 60% from academia, and 15% from national laboratories and government agencies. The participants have a broad interest in computational mechanics and other computational engineering and sciences.
There are several ways in which your organization may participate as a Sponsor of USNCCM-11 and be recognized at the Congress, e.g. events, program listing, conference bags.
Congress participants will be interested in viewing and discussing publications, software, and other materials, including educational, related to computational mechanics in our Exhibitor Area. The Exhibitor Area will purposefully be the focus of daily activities, e.g., refreshments, to provide maximum traffic for our exhibitors.
With attendees from over 40 countries and the United States, exhibiting at USNCCM-11 will provide a unique low cost opportunity to present your product or service to a large international and national audience.
A relatively new feature of the U.S. National Congress is a graduate/undergraduate poster session, which has been scheduled to take place during one afternoon of the congress. During this time, sponsors will have the opportunity to view and discuss with students their work in a wide range of areas dealing with computational modeling.
