The JUT AMlIACM Symposium on Discretization Methods in Structural Mechanics was nd th held in Vienna, Austria, from 2 to 6 June 1997. The site of the Symposium was the "Theatersaal" of the Austrian Academy of Sciences. The Symposium was attended by 71 persons from 23 countries. In addition, several Austrian graduate students and research associates participated in the meeting. In the 5-day Symposium a total of 48 papers were presented. All of them were invited and accorded equal weight in the programme. The following topics were covered: * Error-controlled adaptivity of finite element methods * Large deformations and buckling, including inelastic deformations * Inelastic brittle or ductile localization, phase transition and system failure, resulting from monotonic, cyclic or impact loading * Sensitivity analysis and inverse problems with special emphasis on identification of material parameters * Development of linear and nonlinear finite element methods for thin-walled structures and composites * Implicit integration schemes for nonlinear dynamics * Coupling of rigid and deformable structures; fluid-structures and acoustic-structure interaction * Competitive numerical methods (finite element methods, boundary element methods, coupling ofthese two methods) * Identification of material and structural data. Comments on details of the treatment of these topics are contained in the Concluding Remarks. The Editors would like to express their appreciation to E. Stein who has prepared these Concluding Remarks.
