会议名称：DEM8 – 8th International Conference on Discrete Element Methods
具体地点：University of Twente
主办单位：University of Twente
We invite everyone to propose mini-symposia for the upcoming DEM8 conference. Just send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please refer to the mini-symposia page for some guidelines to follow.
The mini-symposium should be related to at least one of the following conference themes:
improvements and extensions to Event Driven (ED), Contact Dynamics (CD), Discrete Element Method (DEM), etc,
including high-performance algorithms, upscaling, micro-macro, coarse-graining, contact detection, non-spherical particlesTheory: Contact modelling
constitutive contact lawsTheory: Continuum methods
including upscale continuum methods and particle-based continuum solvers such as Smooth Particle Hydrodynamics (SPH), Particle Finite Element Method (PFEM), Finite-Discrete Element Method (FDEM)Theory: Discrete-continuum coupling
