DEM7, the 7th International Conference on Discrete Element Methods and related computational techniques (DDA, FEM/DEM, molecular dynamics, SPH, Meshless methods, computational mechanics of discontinua in general) will be held at Dalian University of Technology, Dalian, China on August 1 - 4, 2016.


Discrete element methods (DEM) are a family of numerical techniques developed over the past few decades to model granular materials and other discontinua at the scale of individual grains and above.


The previous conferences in this series were held in Golden, USA (1989), Boston, USA (1992), Santa Fe, USA (2002), Brisbane, Australia (2007), London, England (2010) and Golden, USA(2013). This conference is an international forum that brings together a diverse group of researchers and practitioners to discuss and present new DEM modeling methodologies and applications.


The Conference is especially designed for engineers, applied mathematicians and scientists from academia, industry and national laboratories who are interested in the latest advances in discrete element technology. These advances include theoretical and computational developments, and innovative applications in the applied sciences and engineering.
