This new term is a consequence of the COVID situation in Europe in the spring and a consequence of the postponement decision.

All important particulars concerning this conference can be found on the www page


Main Topics

Possible topics for submissions include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Material processing by heating and melting
  • Magnetohydrodynamics in industrial processes
  • Production processes for innovative materials and products
  • Process control and optimization
  • Energy efficiency and sustainability of industrial thermal processes

June 13-17, 2021: EPM 2021 – Electromagnetic Processing of Materials (Riga, Latvia)

International conference ELECTROMAGNETIC PROCESSING OF MATERIALS 2021 will take place in Riga Latvia on June 13-17, 2021. 

Electromagnetic Processing of Materials (EPM) relates to all branches of materials processing where some benefit could be attained from an electromagnetic influence on the process. This covers traditional areas such as liquid metal processing, metal casting and solidification, induction heating, but also crystal growth from the melt, plasma processes, recycling, separation. The series of EPM conferences was initiated in 1994 by S. Asai (Japan) and M. Garnier (France). It takes place every three years alternating between Europa and Asia (Nagoya 1994, Paris 1997, Nagoya 2000, Lyon 2003, Sendai 2006, Dresden 2009, Beijing 2012, Cannes 2015, Hyogo 2018). The conference is open for any kind of materials processing involving electric or magnetic fields. It intends to bring together people from academic institutions, industry and related equipment manufacturers.

We are looking forward to welcoming you to Riga 13-17 June 2021.

WCCM-ECCOMAS Congress will take place in digital version from January 11 to 15, 2021 and all those who already have an accepted paper will be able to propose a recording of their talk via a platform provided and to participate in virtual moments of exchange.


(from Tom Weier, Dresden, Germany)


The joint 14th World Congress in Computational Mechanics and ECCOMAS Congress is expected to be one of the largest computational mechanics and applied mathematics events ever organized with an expected participation from all parts of the globe, representing multiple sectors, academia, industry and government institutions.

Through the organization of minisymposia, it will both cover the latest developments in all aspects of computational mechanics, computational fluid dynamics and applied mathematics in conjunction with industrial needs as well as emerging ones. This congress shall fully engage computational mechanics in the XXI century.

A mini-symposium on fluid dynamics of liquid metal batteries (LMB) will be organized in the framework of the ECCOMAS 2020 congress to be held on July 19-24, 2020 in Paris. The proposed minisymposium aims to support the trending interest in the topic of LMBs, to offer a platform for discussion, and to facilitate future collaborations. While the focus shall be on fluid dynamics, lectures on other aspects of LMBs and related devices (e.g., aluminum reduction cells) will be equally welcome and considered to be in the scope of the minisymposium. Topics to be addressed include: mixing and mass transfer, natural convection, magnetohydrodynamic instabilities, electro-vortex flows, electrochemistry of LMBs, scale-up, and grid integration as well as stack design and heat transfer.

Abstracts can be submitted to the conference website after September 15, 2019. Please contact the mini-symposium organizers, Tom Weier, Wietze Herreman and Oleg Zikanov if you have any questions.



Dear colleagues,


the deadline for abstract submission to the minisymposium “Fluid Mechanics of Liquid Metal Batteries” (and for the whole 14th WCCM & ECCOMAS Congress 2020) has been extended to January 15, 2020. Please see below for the updated announcement.


Looking forward to meeting you in Paris!


Best regards,


Tom, Oleg & Wietze
