The XVI Congress on Numerical Methods and their Applications, ENIEF 2007 was held from October 2nd to 5th, 2007 in Cordoba city, Argentina. In this opportunity the ENIEF 2007 took place simultaneously with the First Congress on Applied, Computational and Industrial Mathematics, MACI 2007. Both congresses were organized by the National University of Cordoba (UNC) and they received the support of the Argentine Association of Computational Mechanics (AMCA) and the Argentine Section of the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (AR-SIAM).
The congresses were attended by more than 350 delegates, mainly from Argentina and Brazil, but also from Puerto Rico, Chile, Mexico, Paraguay, Colombia, Uruguay, Venezuela, Spain, United States and Germany. Special lectures have been given by: José M. Martínez (UNICAMP, Brazil), José M.

Full length papers were submitted to a review process prior to publication. From them, 250 paper have been accepted and included in the XXVI Volume of the AMCA Series “Mecánica Computacional”. The editors of this volume were Sergio Elaskar, Elvio Pilotta and German Torres. The papers of “Mecánica Computacional” are available at the web site: http://www.cimec.org.ar/ojs/inex.php/mc/issue/archive
The event lasted four days at the Faculty of the Exacts, Physics and Natural Sciences building of the National University of Cordoba. The technical program included eight plenary lectures, eight short curses, and twenty one sessions in seven rooms in parallel. The sessions “Symposium to Honor Carlos A. Prato” and “Aerospace Technology” were specially organized in honor to Prof. Carlos Prato and Prof. José Tamagno respectively. On Thursday the Congress banquet took place at the Amerian Hotel. The ordinary annual assembly of AMCA was held on Wednesday.
A student paper competition was also carried out and an special poster session was devoted to undergraduate students papers. The three best papers received special prizes consisting in money, books and short fellowships.
In the same week of ENIEF 2007, the “V Latin-American Meeting of the Abaqus Users” was also held during the first and second days of October. This meeting took again place at the building of Faculty of the Exacts, Physics and Natural Sciences.
The congresses received supports from CONICET, SECyT
and Secretary of Water Resources of Argentina, SIAM, SIMULIA, National Technological University, Thomson, ROFEX, Austral University, National University of Litoral and Argentinean Mathematics Union (UMA).
