The Boundary Element Method (BEM) provides an elegant way to address a key challenge in Isogeometric Analysis (IGA), i.e., the fact that CAD models are usually defined by boundary representations. Furthermore, the combination of these two concepts attracts increasing attention due to the computational benefits. The IGABEM has a broad field of applications, including potential and elasticity problems, elastoplasticity, potential and viscous flow, and acoustics. This mini-symposium brings together experts working on IGABEM to discuss and promote the next advances in this field.
