Computational methods for the analysis of contact problems have been under - velopment for more than three decades. One could think that it is a mature ?eld which does not necessarily need new input from scientists working in the area of numerical methods. But even now there is still room for research in computational contact mechanics, hence engineering analysis includes unilateral constraints when a detailed modelling of a problem is needed. This detailed modelling of real str- tures includes e. g. rolling wheels, metal forming processes and car crash analysis, and is related to the increasing power of modern computering equipment. But also multi-physicsmodellingofthermo-mechanicalorelectro-mechanicalcontactas well as microscopic modelling are used in order to get a deeper insight into the mech- ism offrictionand wear. Besides this also new numericalsimulation techniqueswere developed within the ?nite element or boundaryelement method yielding better d- cretization tools and more ef?cient algorithmsfor contact. But up to now there exists no approach which solves all problems of the above mentioned areas in a robust and reliable way, hence investigations and developments are still needed. Even today, scientists try to construct numerically more ef?cient and stable algorithms for the treatment of nonlinear constraint optimization problems and to develop better and more stable discretization schemes for ?nite deformation contact problems. The aim of the symposiumwas to bringscientists togetherwho workon the fr- tier of research in computational contact mechanics described above, or in closely related subjects.
