CSME Conferences and Congresses

One of CSME’s primary roles is to train and update the mechanical engineering community on new advances and emerging fields. The Conferences/Congresses and symposia that CSME organizes or co-sponsors form an important platform to acquire and disseminate such information to its members. The CSME also promotes mini conferences/symposia organised by the Regional Executives and/or by Technical Committees at various universities or industry events.

To help standardize the conference organising processes, the CSME Board of Directors has established a Standing Congresses Committee which develops/promulgates a specific set of guidelines (click to view/download).

CSME International Congresses

The CSME International Congress, now held annually, promotes the communication and transfer of technology among industry, government agencies, universities and R&D laboratories. The CSME Congress offers a platform for national and international Mechanical Engineering experts to meet, exchange information, discuss recent research challenges, and explore problems of practical importance to the profession and its related fields.

Canadian Congress of Applied Mechanics (CANCAM)

CANCAM takes place once every two years and attracts engineers, applied mathematicians and scientists to a truly interdisciplinary program. It provides an international forum for communicating recent and projected advances in all fields of applied mechanics. Also to assemble and provide an opportunity for direct information exchange among delegates from industry, research and academic institutions.

Prochain Forum de la SCGM:

Le forum de la SCGM encourage la communication et le transfert de technologie dans l’industrie, les agencies gouvernementales, les universités et les laboratoires de recherche et de développement. Le forum de la SCGM offre aux experts nationaux et internationaux en génie mécanique un point de rencontre où l’on peut échanger des informations, discuter sur les défis de recherches récents, et explorer les problèmes d’importance pratique à la profession et aux domaine qui lui sont reliés.

L'édition 2019 du Congrès de la SCGM aura lieu conjointement avec la conférence annuelle de la Société CFD à l'University Western Ontario les 2-5 juin 2019. Site web:

Congrès canadien de mécanique appliqué (CANCAM)

Ce congrès a lieu tous les deux ans. Il attire les ingénieurs, les mathématiciens appliqués et les scientifiques vers un programme de nature véritablement interdisciplinaire. Il offre un forum international où l’on peut communiquer les progrès accomplis et anticipés dans tous les domaines de la mécanique appliquée. Il est aussi une occasion de se rassembler et d’échanger des informations entre les délégués des secteurs de l’industrie, de la recherche, et des institutions académiques.
