Registration

8th International Conference on Discrete Element Methods

DEM8 registration and abstract submission are open. 

For DEM8 we will have only 3 parallel sessions to ensure there is enough opportunity to hear the talks you are interested in and to ensure a focus on the science (rather than on the total number of presentations). This will mean all speakers will present to good-sized audiences; hopefully leading to active discussions.

Please refer to all the important information below. If you have any questions or would like more information please contact us at info@dem8.org.

Please note, to keep the number of parallel sessions low, DEM8 is a 5 day conference, therefore our prices reflect this, however we are at least €40 cheaper per day than other similar conferences.*
