The scientific program of CFRAC 2015 is composed of 5 plenary lectures and of minisymposia devoted to various topics within the general theme of computational fracture and failure. Each minisymposium will feature one or more sessions, typically with 5 presentations per session. The list below contains the title of each minisymposium and the names of its organizers. Short descriptions of individual minisymposia  can be seen after clicking on the minisymposium title.

Proposal of Minisymposia on topics not already covered in the following list of minisymposia are welcome and should be addressed to O. Allix.
