Dear Colleagues,

It is our great pleasure and privilege to welcome you at the 10th ECCOMAS Multibody Conference 2021 in Budapest, Hungary.

We would like to express my gratitude to the Multibody Committee for supporting our proposal. My colleagues in the Local Organizing Committee have done their best to create a friendly atmosphere for work and rest, encourage new personal contacts and exchange of ideas.

Budapest is an ideal setting to discuss current progress in the research of multibody dynamics. Our capital is a city of outstanding geographical location with great traditions, wonderful historical places, as well as plenty of prestigious hotels within walking distance to the venue and to downtown Budapest. According to the traditions of ECCOMAS Multibody conferences, the scientific programme is structured to numerous minisymposia on major and challenging pre-defined topics, organized by well-recognized scientists.

We wish you all a successful meeting, full of exchange and improvement of ideas and knowledge in the diverse fields of multibody dynamics.

Multibody dynamics plays a central role in the modelling, analysis, simulation and optimization of mechanical systems with a large variety of engineering applications. The ECCOMAS Thematic Conference on Multibody Dynamics is one of the most widely known multibody conferences, which always takes place in Europe. The forthcoming conference in Budapest will be the 10th in a successful series of meetings held in Lisbon (2003), Madrid (2005), Milan (2007), Warsaw (2009), Brussels (2011), Zagreb (2013), Barcelona (2015), Prague (2017), Duisburg (2019). The conference serves as an opportunity for researchers worldwide to exchange ideas in multibody dynamics concerning theoretical aspects, computational approaches, and also in applied research such as vehicle dynamics, robotics, mechatronics, biomechanics or controlled multibody systems. The conference provides an excellent platform for sharing novel ideas within the continuously growing multibody research community.

Conference Topics

All aspects of multibody dynamics are in focus; however, papers are particularly welcome on the following topics:

  • Biomechanics
  • Contact, impact and constraints
  • Multibody kinematics
  • Mechatronics, robotics and control
  • Time delay in multibody systems
  • Vehicle dynamics and aerospace applications
  • Flexible multibody dynamics
  • Modeling, formalisms, numerical methods
  • Optimization, sensitivity analysis, and parameter identification
  • Efficient computational methods and real-time applications
  • Education, validation and software development

Authors are invited to submit individual contributions related to any of the Conference Topics. Submissions and conference registration have to be performed electronically.
