Second International Conference on the Material Point Method for Modelling Soil–Water–Structure Interaction

8 – 10 January 2019, University of Cambridge, United Kingdom


We are delighted to invite you to join us at the Second International Conference on the Material Point Method for “Modelling Large Deformation and Soil–Water–Structure Interaction” organised by the Anura 3D MPM Research Community in January 2019 at Cambridge. On behalf of the Community, we warmly welcome contributions from all researchers and practitioners interested in computational methods, geotechnics, hydraulics, etc.

Information about the Anura3D MPM Research Community and the Anura3D MPM Software can be found at Community Homepage. The MPM2019 Conference is open to everybody, and the latest version of our MPM software (Anura3D v2019.1) will be available to all researchers. The Conference will be followed by an Anura 3D software training course on Friday 11 January 2019. All researchers have the opportunity to register for this training course on the MPM2019 registration page.

Each conference paper will be allocated with a DOI, and we will send the proceedings to be included in the Conference Proceedings Citation Index-Science (CPCI-S). High-quality papers have the opportunity to be published in Journal of Hydrodynamics (Springer) and Soils and Foundations (Elsevier).

The First International Conference on the Material Point Method (MPM2017) was held in Delft in 10-12 January 2017. Information about MPM2017 can be found at

The first announcement can be viewed in the MPM 2019 1st flyer.

Please view the second announcement in the MPM 2019 2nd flyer.

The deadline for the first draft has been extended to 24th August 2018. In an effort to reduce the authors' workload, we require both the first draft and the final contribution to follow the same template, but the length of the first draft is quite flexible. Please see the submission section.
