About the Conference

The Joint International Conference on Multibody System Dynamics, IMSD, is organized every other spring after the first IMSD, which was held in Lappeenranta, Finland, in 2010 (see Past Conferences). The second IMSD took place at the University of Stuttgart, Germany, in 2012, and the third IMSD took place in Busan, Korea, in 2014. The forthcoming IMSD will take place in Montréal, Canada, in 2016.

The purpose of the Conference is to serve as a meeting point for the international multibody community to provide an opportunity to exchange high-level, current information on the theory and applications of multibody systems. The Conference is co-sponsored by IUTAM (International Union of Theoretical and Applied Mechanics), IFToMM (International Federation for the Promotion of Mechanism and Machine Science), CSME (The Canadian Society for Mechanical Engineering), KSME (Korean Society of Mechanical Engineers) and JSME (Japan Society of Mechanical Engineers).
