Events definition

E-CAM runs three types of events:

  • Scoping workshops (SCOWs)
  • State-of-the-art workshop (SAWs)
  • Extended Software Development Workshops (ESDWs)


Industrial partners and academics work together to sharpen and focus the work plan for the project. Academic beneficiaries outline the major advances to be expected in each area with an emphasis on application. Industrial partners outline, in general terms, the areas that they wish to see developed and the kind of support that they require. These workshops are open to academics and industrial partners.


These workshops survey new methods and algorithmic developments in simulation and establish the codes and software modules that should be included in the E-CAM repository. They establish the current state-of-the-art and highlight the immediate developments required. Workshops take place every two years in each of our four scientific areas and are open to academics and industrialists partners.


These workshops train scientists in the development of modular codes for high performance machines. Documentation and testing are key components of the workshops and the associated on-line manuals and test cases are made available through the E-CAM software repository. ESDWs are open to postdocs, senior graduate students and early career researchers in industry and academia.
