The world conference on the Boundary Element Method, now in its 24th year, is the internationally recognised forum for disseminating the latest boundary element method and its applications.

BEM is a very active area of research with the method being successfully applied to solve difficult engineering and scientific problems. This includes the solution of non-linear and time-dependent problems. Considerable advances have also been made in the solution of complex fluid dynamic problems and the use of high performance computing.

Practising engineers envisage the implementation of the technique as an analysis and design tool, which is both powerful yet simple to use.


The BEM conference series attracts a large number of well-established practitioners and leading researchers in the field. The meetings always have special appeal to young researchers who are actively involved in advances in Boundary Elements. Both Engineers and Scientists, within the areas of Numerical Analysis and Boundary Elements, will benefit from attending BEM 24.


• Keep up-to-date on the latest advances in the field.
• Present your research within a unique forum.
• Collaborate with experts from around the world.
• Immediate publication of your research, when your paper is accepted. The conference book is distributed at Registration.
• Your research work will be publicised internationally.


Sintra is one of the most delightful places to be found in Portugal. Located in wooded highlands, Sintra was long the summer residence of Portugal’s royal court and was also popular with writers such as Lord Byron who described the town as, “the most pleasing in Europe”. The town is also rich in archaeological remains, ancient manor houses and churches of artistic value. With its wide range of green hills and crags, the Sierra de Sintra offers striking views of the coastline to match its impressive beauty.
