IUTAM Symposia and Instructional Summer Schools
The aim of any symposium sponsored by IUTAM is to assemble a group of active scientists within a well-defined field for the development of science within that field. The purpose of an IUTAM Instructional Summer School is to provide lectures by leading experts in a new or emerging field of science and engineering in order to foster developments in that field.
An overview of the IUTAM Symposia and Summer Schools can be found on IUTAM's wesite. A calendar of upcoming IUTAM Symposia and Summer Schools can also be found on the IUTAM website.

How to Host a Symposium or School
Proposals from the United States should be submitted through the U.S. National Committee, which competitively screens and forwards them with recommendations for consideration by the IUTAM General Assembly, which meets every two years.
