The 4th Polish Congress of Mechanics and the 23rd International Conference on Computer Methods in Mechanics were officially launched at the Jagiellonian University in Krakow, southern Poland, on Monday.

Polish President Andrzej Duda, inaugurating the conference, said he was pleased that debates held during the event will be an important contribution to Poland's economic development. 

"It is very important for us that the links between science and industry in our country are getting stronger and deeper, that they increase Polish innovativeness and competitiveness, contribute to the success of our native companies and their expansion on the global market," Duda said. 

The Congress presents state-of-the-art research in all disciplines of classical and quantum mechanics, solid and fluid mechanics, computational mechanics, applied mathematics and physics, as well as structural mechanics and engineering. The conference on computer methods in mechanics continues a 46-year-old series of conferences dedicated to numerical methods and their applications in mechanics-based problems. (PAP)
