Previous meetings in the COMPLAS series were held in Barcelona in 1987, 1989, 1992, 1995, 1997, 2000, 2003, 2005, 2007, 2009, 2011, 2013, 2015 and 2017. The first fourteen conferences in the series were technically and academically successful and these meetings have become established events in the field of computational plasticity. We intend to make of COMPLAS 2019 a step forward in the history of the COMPLAS conferences.
COMPLAS 2019 is one of the Thematic Conferences of the European Community on Computational Methods in Applied Sciences (ECCOMAS). It is also an International Association for Computational Mechanics (IACM) Special Interest Conference.
