The XL Ibero-Latin-American Congress on Computational Methods in Engineering (CILAMCE 2019) will take place in the beautiful coastal city of Natal, Rio Grande do Norte, Brazil, from 11 to 14 November 2019. CILAMCE is an annual conference promoted by the Brazilian Association of Computational Methods in Engineering (ABMEC), intended to serve as an international forum for communicating recent developments on numerical methods in allfields of engineering and related sciences.

Since 1977, when it was launched by the emerging Brazilian community of computational mechanics, under the leadership of the late Prof. Agustín Ferrante, CILAMCE has become the main conference for engineers, students, researchers and other professionals, especially from Brazil and Ibero-Latin-America (but also from further abroad), to discuss and explore the state-of-the-art on computational methods in engineering.

CILAMCE is a multidisciplinary event: scientists and engineers from all fields are encouraged to attend the conference. The technical program typically includes worldly prominent plenary speakers, together with several mini-symposia parallel sessions with contributed papers.

CILAMCE also promotes a special student competition – the Agustín Ferrante Award – to acknowledge undergraduate students who show potential for outstanding scientific achievements.

This year, for the first time CILAMCE will take place at the laid-back, attractive coastal city of Natal, Brazil, under the auspices of the Federal University of Rio Grande do Norte.

We look forward to welcoming you to Natal for the CILAMCE 2019.

Natal - Rio Grande do Norte

With beautiful beaches, white sand dune areas and a rich and diverse culture.

Leisure and entertainment

Natal offers its visitors a unique leisure and entertainment experience!


The city was thus named (“Natal” meaning “Christmas” in Portuguese) because, on December 25, 1597 , Admiral Antônio da Costa Valente and his men entered the shoals of the Potengi River, after several failed attempts at colonization. The date became the birthday of the capital of Rio Grande do Norte. With the strengthening of its economy and tourism, the city started to present an excellent quality of life and has a great urban structure, standing out among the capitals of Northeast Brazil.
