Professor K. Saanouni, 58, PhD from University of Technology of Compiègne (France) in Solid and Structural Mechanics (1988) is a distinguished professor of applied and computational mechanics at the University of Technology of Troyes (France), where he founds and leads a research group working on advanced modelling in virtual metal forming. He is teaching the theoretical and computational nonlinear mechanics with application to metal forming by large inelastic strains with ductile damage. Prof. K. Saanouni is the author or co-author of more than 260 scientific publications. He has supervised more then 30 PhD thesis. He is member of editorial board of 2 international journals: IJDM and IJFO, and member of organizing committee of more than 40 scientific events. He is the authors of an academic book entitled “ Damage mechanics in metal forming. Advanced Modeling and Numerical Simulation” , ISTE/Wiley, 2012, ISBN: 978-1-84821-348-7.

Co-Chairman: Argiris Kamoulakos, Scientific Director at ESI Group
Dr Argiris Kamoulakos has a BSc (Honours) degree in Aeronautics from The City University, London in 1980 and two MS, one in Aeronautics and Astronautics and the second in Mechanical Engineering from MIT, Boston in 1982. In 1987 he obtained a Ph.D. in Aeronautical Structures from Imperial College of Science Technology and Medicine in London. Dr Argiris Kamoulakos joined ESI Group in 1994 bringing more than 20 years of industrial experience in the applications of the Finite Element Method. His expertise covers linear/non linear as well as static/dynamic industrial application developments. He worked for WS Atkins R&D, ZENTEC (MARC UK), SAMTECH and SONACA. He is a Fellow of the Royal Aeronautical Society (FRAeS) and an Associate Fellow of the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA).

Co-Chairman: Jean-Loup Chenot, Scientific Director at Transvalor SA
Dr Jean-Loup Chenot, Diploma Engineer from Polytechnique School of Paris (1968) and PhD from Pierre et Marie Curie University, Paris 6 (1973), is currently Scientific Director of Tranvalor SA since 2014. He was Professor and Head of the CEMEF (School of Mines of Paris at Sophia Antipolis) from 1979 to 2008. Chairman of the NUMIFORM'1992 conference and member of the NUMIFORM Steering Committee since 1992. He was also consultant for CEMEF and TRANSVALOR SA between 2009 and 2013. Dr J.L. Chenot is a worldwide expert in numerical methods for metal forming processes and the co-author with R.H. Wagoner of the book " Metal forming analysis, Cambridge University Press, Cambridge, 2001".
