In the Hall of Honor of the Federico Santa María Technical University in Valparaíso, the "2nd Chilean Symposium on Boundary Elements Methods" was organized, jointly organized by the Departments of Mechanical Engineering and Mathematics of the USM, which brought together engineers and mathematicians around numerical simulations using integral border methods, discussing their latest advances and applications.

The meeting was attended by foreign speakers Dr. Lehel Benjai, from Herriot-Watt University of Scotland; Dr. Lorena Barba and Natalia Clementi, both of George Washington University of the United States; Dr. Jeydeep Bardhan, of Glaxxo Smithklein of the United States; Dr. Xavier Claeys, from Université Pierre at Marie Curie in France; and Dr. Elwin Van`t Wout, Thomas Führer and Carlos Pérez, from the Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile.

The symposium is funded in part by the National Fund for Scientific and Technological Development of Conicyt (FONDECYT), which aims to stimulate and promote the development of basic scientific and technological research, and is the main fund of this type in the country, whose impacts have benefited both, the scientific community and society in general. It also had the support of the Valparaíso Technological Science Center (CCTVal), the Mathematical Modeling and Analysis Group of Valparaíso (AM2V), and the Departments of Mathematics and Mechanical Engineering of the Institution.

The academic of the Department of Mechanical Engineering of the USM, Christopher Cooper, explained that "the first symposium on this subject was held a couple of years ago in Santiago, and because there are several researchers in Chile who are dedicated to these subjects, both From a mathematical as well as an engineering point of view, we met with Michael Karkulik, an academic from the Department of Mathematics at USM, and we thought it was worth the effort to continue this conversation with our colleagues and make a quality event.
