This is the Eighth Conference in the Engineering Computational Technology series that commenced in 1998. Previous venues for the conference have included: Edinburgh, Prague, Leuven, Lisbon, Gran Canaria, Athens and Valencia. The conference is concerned with the application of the latest computational technology to all aspects of engineering. Computational Technology encompasses both the latest hardware and software developments as well as algorithmic and theoretical developments. Contributors to this conference series have included engineers, mathematicians and scientists.

The conference is concerned with both theoretical, mathematical and scientific developments as well as applications of established technology to new domains.

The conference runs concurrently with the Eleventh International Conference on Computational Structures Technology. Participants may attend sessions from either conference.
The themes for this conference will include: Computer Aided Manufacture - Computational Fluid Dynamics - Computer Aided Design & Computer Aided Engineering - Computer Modelling - Simulation - Virtual Reality and Virtual Environments - Virtual Prototyping - Visualisation and Graphics - Multi-phase Problems - Multi-physics Problems - Thermal Problems - Geotechnical Problems - Multi-Scale Problems - Nanomechanics - Micromechanics - Mechanics of Granular Materials - Particle Methods - Computational Biomechanics - Process Simulation - Wave Propagation - Mathematical Modelling - Standards - Automative Applications - Software Reliability - Model Verification - Accoustics - Energy Systems - Fluid Transport - Active and Passive Control - Communications - Environmental Engineering - Mesh and Grid Generation - Design and Manufacture - Materials Processing - Optimal Design - Adaptive Procedures - Probabilistic Methods - Flow Simulation and Modelling - FEM and BEM - Chaos - Data Mining - Heat Transfer - CAD/CAM-Rapid Prototyping - Geometric Modelling - Mass Customization - Virtual Environments - Virtual Humans - Micro and Nano-Scale Problems - Multibody Dynamics - Geophysics - Information Systems - HPC & HPC Networking - Fluid-Structure Interactions - Multi-Scale Modelling - Computational methods driving their inspiration from nature - Soft computing - Multiscale modelling - Optimization and sensitivity analysis - Computational Geomechanics - Rock Mechanics - Computational Geo-Environmental Mechanics - Soil-Structure Interaction - Biomechnical Engineering - Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems - Quantification of Uncertainty in Simulations - Decision Making in Engineering Management - Numerical and Computational Linear Algebra - Genetic Algorithms and Neural Networks - Gradient Elasticity - Gradient Plasticity - Flow and Transport Simulation and Modeling - Telematics, Tele-maintenance, Tele-diagnosis.
