The 10th IFToMM International Conference on Rotordynamics will be a consecration of 40 years of exchanging information on research and technological developments in this area. The idea to have a regular quadrennial meeting started with the conference In Rome in 1982. It followed the meeting in Tokyo (1986), Lyon (1990), Chicago (1994), Darmstadt (1998), Sydney (2002), Vienna (2006), Seoul (2010), Milano (2014). It has been a history of success due to the all the advances achieved by Rotordynamics during these years. It developed to a forum for discussions between scientists from Universities and/or research institutions and mechanical engineers from industry, which is a very effective way of direct knowledge transfer between Universities and practical engineering. IFToMM gave the community the chance to be represented by a Technical Committee which is the responsible for selecting the locations of the conferences and define priorities of the area. In these 40 years this committee increased considerably the number of members and the amount of countries represented. Rio de Janeiro was chosen as the venue for the meeting considering the facilities in lodging after all the improvements that were done for the Olympic Games. The organization effort comes from several Universities and companies headed by UNICAMP.

Av. Lúcio Costa, 2630 - Barra da Tijuca, Rio de Janeiro - RJ

Rio de Janeiro’s nickname “Marvelous City” describes well the density of impressions it awakes in the visitors. In spite of its size, the city offers famous beaches like Copacabana and Ipanema while in less than one hour you may cross the Atlantic forest and visit the landmark “Cristo Redentor” statue at 900m height. From there you can enjoy all the contrast between the blue colored sky, the ocean and the green of the nature surrounding the Granite Mountains as well all contrasts between the different ways the housings spread around.

 

There was a great skepticism about Rio being host of the Olympic Games in 2016 but the city showed to be capable to prepare itself for mega events and offer safety and logistics. A completely renewed airport will receive you, a beautiful prepared downtown area that makes it possible to walk along the bay and visit colonial buildings, interesting and rich churches, like São Bento church. The Olympics produced a lot of changes and definitively improved the “Barra da Tijuca” area, where the Olympic Park is. Please go to http://visit.rio/en/welcome/ and get ideas what to do in Rio.

 

IFToMM Rotordynamics is being organized in the Windsor Barra Hotel and Convention Center, where you may relax from the work in the Conference area at the ground floor, enjoying the view over beaches from the rooftop or crossing the street and walk in the sand besides the Ocean.
