On behalf of the Organizing Committee of the COBEM 2011 we wish to invite you to participate in the 21st International Congress of Mechanical Engineering. This conference will be held in a paradisiacal place, close to the Atlantic Ocean at Natal city in the Northeast of Brazil, from 24 to 28 of October 2011. The choice of such a comfortable place was deliberately made to make sure that communications and discussions will be better fostered between participants. Held every two years, since 1971, COBEM is the most important event in the field of Mechanical Sciences and Engineering in all Latin America. This Congress gathers experts coming from research area and industry. This mixed community is also transversal by welcoming people from Mechanical and Industrial Engineering, Bioengineering, Materials Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Electric Engineering, Environmental Engineering, Petroleum Engineering, Mechatronics and Robotics fields.
COBEM reached its international status in the year of 2001. Since its eleventh edition, it has seen a lot of trans-national projects to be incubated, contributing to the structuring and the emergence of a new international community interested in Mechanical Sciences and Engineering. The main theme of COBEM 2011 is Green Mechanical Engineering. In this scenario we will have a unique opportunity to examine and discuss technologies and innovations with a focus on "Sustainable Mechanical Engineering”. We are looking forward to receiving your contribution and to host you in Natal/Brazil in October of 2011.
