CMEM 2021

20th International Conference on Computational Methods and Experimental Measurements


25–27 May 2021


CMEM 2021

With the main objective to preserve our delegates’ wellbeing, but also with the belief that the scientific community should not be stopped, WIT decided that CMEM 2021 should not take place as scheduled, in Rome, Italy, but take place as an online event instead.

The conference was organised by the Wessex Institute, UK, represented by Prof. Santiago Hernandez, University of Naples “Federico II”, Italy, represented by Professor Giovanni Maria Carlomagno and Link Campus University, Italy represented by Guido Marseglia.

The conference, which started in Washington DC, USA in 1981 is well established and always attracts a wide international spread of delegates. The conference aims to address a wide variety of topics related to experimental and computational methods with emphasis on new applications and the latest developments.

Opening of the Conference

The conference was opened by the Chairmen of the conference - Prof. Santiago Hernandez and Professor Giovanni Maria Carlomagno who welcomed the delegates to the event.

Invited Presentation

There were a series of invited lectures on advanced topics of research and applications, as follows:

  • “A design of experiment platform for online simulation model Validation and parameter updating within digital twinning”
    by Prof. Mark Hadfield, Bournemouth University, United Kingdom

  • “Design for additive manufacturing, is it an effective alternative? Part 1: Material chatacterization and geometrical optimization”
    by Dr Franco Concli, Free University of Bolzano, Italy

  • “Design for additive manufacturing, is it an effective alternative? Part 2: Cost evaluation”
    by Dr Franco Concli, Free University of Bolzano, Italy

  • “Microstructure and fatigue properties of Cu-Ni-Si alloy strengthened by Ni2Si intermetallic compounds”
    by Prof. Masahiro Goto, Oita University, Japan

  • “Advancement of vehicle occupant restraint system design by integration of artificial Intelligence Technologies”
    by Prof. Hirosuke Horii, Kokushikan University, Japan

  • “Sea use map: GIS supporting marine areas sustainable development”
    by Dr. Giuseppe Zappala , National Research Council, Italy

Conference Sessions

The papers presented during the conference were divided into 4 sessions.

Q&A Live Zoom Session

Conference delegates were invited to participate in a Q&A Live Zoom Session which took place on 25th May 2021. That friendly session was a great opportunity for participants to interact with each other and ask questions to authors about their papers.

Conference Publication

Papers presented at this conference are published in Vol. 130 of the WIT Transactions on Engineering Sciences (ISSN 1743-3533). Papers presented at the meeting are available Open Access in the eLibrary of the Wessex Institute ( from where they can be freely downloaded by any interested parties.

A few papers were selected for publication in the International Journal of Computational Methods and Experimental Measurements and the International Journal of Transport Development and Integration.

Closing of the Conference

We are very sorry that we were not able to meet our delegates in person this year.

We would like to thank the delegates for participating in the event and look forward to meeting them at the next conference in the series.
