Prof. Jože Korelc graduated from the University of Ljubljana and finished his PhD at the Darmstadt University of Technology. His research examines an interdisciplinary approach to computational mechanics as synthesis of classical numerical methods and symbolic-algebraic systems. He has published numerous articles on finite element technology for solid and contact problems, material modeling, sensitivity analysis, automatic code generation and the use of symbolic methods in engineering. Prof. Korelc is a primal developer of the software systems AceGen and AceFEM for on-demand numerical code generation and finite element analysis. He has organized four conferences as a president of Slovenian Society of Mechanics and published a book by Springer.
