Multibody dynamics is an exciting area of mechanics, which merges various disciplines such as structural dynamics, multiphysic mechanics, computational mathematics, control theory and computer science in order to deliver methods and tools for the virtual prototyping of complex mechanical systems. Multibody dynamics play a central role in the modelling, analysis, simulation and optimization of mechanical systems in a variety of fields and for a wide range of applications. As new methods and procedures are being proposed at a fast pace in academia, research laboratories and industry, it becomes important to provide researchers in multibody dynamics with appropriate venues for exchanging ideas and results. To answer these needs, the ECCOMAS Thematic Conference on Multibody Dynamics was initiated in 2003. Since then the conference is held every two years in changing locations.


The Conference focuses on all aspects of multibody dynamics.
Papers are especially solicited on the following topics:
• Biomechanics
• Contact and constraints
• Mechatronics, robotics and control
• Flexible multibody dynamics
• Formulations and numerical methods
• Optimization and sensitivity analysis
• Efficient simulation and real-time applications
• Education, validation and software development
• Applications in vehicle dynamics, aerospace and medical devices


The European Community on Computational Methods in Applied Sciences (ECCOMAS), founded in 1993 is a scientific organization grouping together European associations with interests in the development and applications of computational methods in applied sciences and technology. The main purpose of ECCOMAS is to promote joint efforts of European universities, research institutes and industries which are active in the broader field of numerical methods and computer simulation in Engineering and Applied Sciences (i.e. Computational: Solid and Structural Mechanics, Fluid Dynamics, Acoustics, Electromagnetics, Physics, Chemistry, Applied Mathematics, and Scientific Computing) called " Fields of ECCOMAS"  with the objective of:

  • exchange scientific and technical information concerning basic and applied research;

  • support the development of mathematical models, numerical and computer methods, simulations and numerical data bases;

  • promote advanced research for industrial applications;

  • promote European achievements in the fields of ECCOMAS on a worldwide scale;

  • support the cooperation on a European level of universities, research institutes, and industries engaged in the fields of ECCOMAS;

  • stimulate and foster the education in the fields of ECCOMAS;

  • act as an advisor to the European Commission for identifying and coordinating innovative research directions;

  • establish advisory committees in strategic areas in the fields of ECCOMAS;

  • organise forums and meetings for the dissemination of knowledge.
