This International Conference on Mathematics and Continuum Mechanics will be held under the auspices of the CIM (Centro Internacional de Matemática). It will take place at the FEUP (Faculdade de Engenharia da Universidade do Porto), in Porto, Portugal, in February 19-22, 2008.

The event focuses on a selected range of interdisciplinary topics handled from both a mathematical and an engineering applications point of view. Despite the apparent heterogeneity of the topics, they are certain to prompt interesting dialogue among the conveners. The target audience is, besides engineers and mathematicians, graduate and PhD students interested in doing research on problems related to Mathematics, Solid and Fluid Mechanics and Geophysics.

The conference will feature six thematic mini-symposia on
- Computational Methods for Advanced Composites
- Contact Mechanics
- Mathematics and the Atmospheric Sciences
- Modelling of Industrial Processes
- Numerical Analysis of Thin Structures
- Ocean Dynamics

Each symposium consists of one forty-five minute plenary session and two to four invited half-hour addresses. Some contributed papers will be selected for fifteen to twenty minute presentations and others to be on display in a poster session. Proceedings are published by CIM.
