Kyoto, Japan


Computational methods have been playing crucial roles in diverse fields such as mechanical, civil, architectural, electrical and electronic engineering as well as in science. The Japan-China Symposia on Boundary Element Methods (1987, 1988, 1990, 1991, 1993, 1994, 1996, 1998) held in Japan and China, First Pan-Pacific Conference on Computational Engineering (PCCE93, 1993) in Seoul Korea, and the Asia-Pacific International Conferences in Computational Methods in Engineering (2003 in Sapporo Japan, 2006 in Hefei China, 2009 in Nanjing China) have made substantial contribution to computational methods. It is our great pleasure to announce that the Fourth Asia-Pacific International Conference in Computational Methods in Engineering 2012 (ICOME2012) will be held in Kyoto, Japan, following these successful previous conferences. The aim of this conference is to discuss newest achievements of computational methods in different fields of engineering and science. Emphasis is placed on fundamentals as well as on applications related to the latest developments of computational methods.
