Symposia & Summer Schools
Every two years the IUTAM General Assembly decides on the list of IUTAM-sponsored Symposia and instructional Summer Schools. The Assembly calls upon the advice of the Symposia Panels.
Proposals for symposia and Summer Schools are made through the Assembly members, the Adhering Organizations and the Affiliated Organizations.
Prospective IUTAM Symposia and Summer Schools organizers are asked to submit a Proposal online.
The IUTAM Symposia are reserved to invited participants. Those wishing to participate in an IUTAM Symposium are therefore advised to contact the Chairman of the Scientific Committee in due time in advance of the meeting. As of January 2011, Elsevier Procedia IUTAM is the preferred publisher of the refereed proceedings of the IUTAM Symposia. In rare cases the Proceedings are published as special issues of appropriate journals.
The IUTAM Symposia Panels
In 1977 the IUTAM Bureau set up two panels charged with the duty of scanning proposals made for IUTAM Symposia in the fields of fluid and solid mechanics. In 1992 that duty was extended to include scanning of proposals for IUTAM Summer Schools. Finally, in 2002 scanning of proposals for co-sponsorship of non-IUTAM events was also included as a duty of the panels.The following members of the fluids panel and the solids panel have been elected in 2008 for the period up to and including the 2010 meeting of the General Assembly.
