Subject: Invitation to Special Session at IASS05


Dear Colleague:

We would like to renew our invitation to present a paper at the special
session on

              High-Performance Computational Methods for 
              Multidisciplinary Analyses of Shell Structures

at the 5th International Conference on COMPUTATION of SHELL & SPATIAL
STRUCTURES, which will be held in the lovely city of Salzburg, Austria, 
June 1-4, 2005. 


This special session will provide a forum for discussing state-of-the-art
computational methods for Multidisciplinary Analyses of Shell Structures.
Papers are welcome in the following areas:

     o Shell structures undergoing fluid-structure interaction, including
       hydroelasticity and aeroelasticity
     o Shell structures subject to electrostatic and electromagnetic
       pressure
     o Coupled thermomechancical behavior of shells, including 
       electro-thermo-mechanical coupling
     o Parameter sensitivity analysis of shells undergoing multi-physics
       interaction
     o Linear and nonlinear solution methods
     o Partitioned and staggered analysis procedures
     o Space-time methods and ALE schemes
     o Mesh generation and mesh updating strategies
     o Multidisciplinary optimization
     o Application in biomechanics
     o Application to micro-systems 
     o Other academic and industrial applications 

If you are interested in contributing to this special session, please,
submit a one page abstract to one of us on or before November 1, 2004.
Further information about the conference can be found at:

Please, let us know if you have any questions. We are looking forward to
receiving your positive response.

With best regards,

Charbel Farhat and Kurt Maute
