Day one began with a guided tour of the awe-inspiring World Heritage Aachen Cathedral, setting the stage for an enriching program. In the scientific program, we had a total of 19 talks in four sessions, addressing recent topics in computational mechanics.

On both days, the scientific program was started by keynote lectures. On the first day, Ferdinando Auricchio from Università di Pavia presented an overview about recent numerical methods applied to additive manufacturing. On the second day, Stefanie Elgeti from TU Wien and RWTH Aachen University, gave an inspiring presentation with the title “Numerical Design of Engineering Components and their Production Processes”. The evening dinner after the first day and several coffee breaks fostered meaningful networking and connections.
