The AMCA Awards have been instituted as recognition of the scientific trajectory in the field of computational mechanics and are granted in three categories: Young Researchers; Scientific, Professional and Teaching Trajectory; and International Scientific Trajectory. They have been given every two years since 2000.
The first motivation for these awards was to help the work of outstanding young researchers. It was afterwards extended to the other categories. The award for Young Researchers is reserved for researchers not older than 40 years. Outstanding publications, teaching and application works are taken into account.
The award to the Scientific, Professional and Teaching Trajectory is intended to recognize the research, teaching and professional activities, in the last 10 years, in computational mechanics. In this category, as well as for Young Researchers, mainly the activities accomplished in Argentina are considered. The award to the International Scientific Trajectory, have been instituted to recognize not only the scientific trajectory in the field of computational mechanics but also the interaction with research centres of Argentina. The AMCA awards consists in a statuette made by an argentine artisan. In addition a cash prize is granted for the Young Research award.
