The first national conference in the series on Computer Methods in Metals
Technology (KomPlasTech) was held in 1993 in Kraków, Poland. 21 conferences
in this series have been organized since then. At the beginning of
the 21st century the intention of the organizers was to extend the scope
to all materials and to make the conference international by inviting the
scientists from all over the world. Thus, several papers dealing with
non-metalic materials were submitted and the name of the Conference was
changed to Computer Methods in Materials Technology. The first international
KomPlasTech Conference was organized in Zakopane in 2007.
There is an increasing necessity to solve complex problems in numerical
modelling of materials processing. Several new techniques dedicated to description
of materials behaviour have been developed. Application of the multiscale analysis
to joint modelling of phenomena occurring in different scales (macro, mezo, micro
and nano) became effective. Thus, the objectives of the KomPlasTech Conference are
to get together scientists and researchers working in the fields of computer methods
and materials science and to enable exchange of information between those two groups.
