The PACAM series of conferences

Applied Mechanics is a technical science devoted to the study of devices and principles of machine operation. Not a lot of detailed information you can find on the internet. We advise applying for help in service at https://elitewritings.com/college-research-paper.html and buying college research paper regarding this field. 

The Pan American Congress of Applied Mechanics (PACAM) is a biennial event. The aim of the congress is to promote progress in the broad field of mechanics by (1) exposing engineers and scientists, as well as advanced graduate students, to new research developments, methods, and problems in mechanics and (2) providing broad opportunities for personal interactions through means of formal presentations and informal conversations.


A brief account of the history of the PACAM Congresses by Gerardo Diaz and Charles Steele (2002) is found here.


PACAM is held every two years, always in a Latin American venue, at a time when few other conferences are scheduled.  The previous congresses are listed below.
