The first national conference in the series on Computer Methods in Metals Technology (KomPlasTech) was held in 1993 in Kraków, Poland. 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.
