The first PhD Olympiad will take place in Athens from June 30 - July 1, 2011 in conjunction with the 7th International Congress of the Greek Association of Computational Mechanics (GRACM). The ECCOMAS PhD Olympiads will take place annually in different locations.

The purpose of the ECCOMAS PhD Olympiads is to present the best PhD Theses approved by a University or Research Organization in Europe during the previous year and to act as a forum for exchanging new ideas, disseminating recent developments in the fields of ECCOMAS and sharing common research interests among young investigators.  Every affiliated National or Regional Association to ECCOMAS is represented by a number of selected PhDs submitted for consideration for the two ECCOMAS PhD Awards.  The Award ceremony for the two best ECCOMAS PhD Awards will also take place at the Olympiads.

An up to 1 page abstract is required, including representative figures and references, in pdf format following the abstract sample.

The Abstract will be sent to the e-mail address: 7gracm@dpem.tuc.gr with the notification ECCOMAS PHD OLYMPIAD 2011.
