The conference on Boundary Elements and Mesh Reduction Methods is the recognised international forum for the presentation and discussion of the latest advances of these methods and their applications in science and engineering.

The continuous success of the conference since the first meeting took place in 1978 indicates the strength of the research carried out by different groups around the world. The history of this conference, now in its 33rd annual meeting, traces the evolution of advanced methods since the first successful development of boundary integral techniques into BEM took place to the recent and most sophisticated Mesh Reduction Methods. The objective of the meetings is the further development of technologies that reduce or eliminate the type of meshes required by first generation computational methods such as finite differences and finite elements. The aim is being achieved first through the emergence of BEM as a method that eliminates the need for an internal mesh and more recently through the development of a series of advanced techniques for further mesh reduction approaches culminating in the emergence of meshless methods.

The BEM/MRM conference attracts a substantial number of well established and leading researchers in the field. The meetings have always had a special appeal to young researchers and are characterised by a friendly atmosphere in which delegates at different stages of their careers can interact with each other.

Engineers and scientists within the areas of numerical analysis, boundary elements and meshless methods will benefit from attending the meeting.

Conference topics include;
- Advanced meshless and mesh reduction methods
- Heat and mass transfer
- Electrical engineering and electromagnetics
- Fluid flow
- Advanced formulations
- Computational techniques
- Advanced structural applications
- Dynamics and vibrations
- Damage mechanics and fracture
- Material characterisation
- Financial engineering applications
- Stochastic modelling
- Emerging applications

Benefits of attending include;
- Conference papers are peer-reviewed by members of the International Scientific Advisory Committee and other colleagues. Papers are rapidly processed for publication in hard-cover and digital book form. The books are available to delegates at registration and are also widely distributed throughout the world by WITPress.
- Papers are also available in digital format to the international scientific community through the Wessex Institute eLibrary http://library.witpress.com
- Papers presented at Wessex Institute conferences appear regularly in notable reviews, publications and databases.
- The opportunity to present your research within a unique forum and collaborate with experts from around the world.

Delegates attending BEM/MRM 2011 will be invited to submit an expanded version of their paper for publication in the International Journal of Engineering Analysis with Boundary Elements associated with the Wessex Institute of Technology.
