The Conference venue is Sarajevo, the capital of Bosnia and Herzegovina. The city urban area provides home to the population of roughly half a million. Sarajevo, or ‘Palace place’, has always been the major crossroad in the center on migration paths and conquests by Eastern Roman Empire, Slavs, Jews from Spain, Ottoman and Austro-Hungarian Empires, each leaving the imprint and contributing to the rich cultural heritage and numerous monumental buildings that remain in the city. In the former Yugoslavia, city of Sarajevo was known for most vibrant music scene, 1984 Winter Olympic Games, and the long siege in 1990’s during the break-up of the country. Presently, Sarajevo has fully regained its status as the crossroad between East and West and a new tourist ‘must-see’ destination with well-known ‘Sarajevo-Film-Festival’. The travel guide series, Lonely Planet, has ranked Sarajevo as one of the top ten cities to visit in 2010. In 2011, Sarajevo was nominated to be the European Capital of Culture in 2014 and 2019, hosting the European Youth Olympic Festival in 2019. Sarajevo is also a very pleasant place to spend some leisure time. The city’s location offers possibility for either a quick trip (less than half an hour ride) to
mountains that hosted Winter Olympic Games or a daytrip (three hour ride) to Adriatic Sea resorts. Late June is the best period just before the massive arrival of tourists for ‘Sarajevo-Film-Festival’, and the weather is already sufficiently mild for a very pleasant visit. The conference is co-organized with two BH partners, Civil Engineering Faculty (Gradjevinski fakultet) and Mechanical Engineering Faculty, under sponsorship of Academy of Sciences and Arts of Bosnia-Herzegovina (ANUBiH) and Central European Association for Computational Mechanics (CEACM).
