The twentieth overseas Congress of Theoretical and utilized Mech- ics, ICTAM 2000, came about August 27 – September 2, 2000, within the c- ference amenities of the Chicago Marriott Downtown on Michigan street in Chicago, Illinois, united states. The Congress was once invited by way of the USA nationwide Academy of Sciences at the advice of its nationwide Comm- tee on Theoretical and utilized Mechanics. A consortium of collage departments and courses acted because the neighborhood hosts. The undersigned served, respectively, as President and Secretary-General of the Congress. during this complaints quantity we've tried to trap the exci- ment of that memorable week. we've got laid out the booklet in order that it, approximately, tracks the occasions in the course of the week of the Congress in a lot the order within which they happened. we now have given addresses and studies in context, even supposing occasionally with gildings to supply extra information than may possibly quite be provided orally. we have now attempted to breed necessities of the hole and shutting ceremonies for the good thing about those that couldn't attend one or the opposite. we've got attempted to collect an enticing quantity that would have lasting worth by way of including an in depth identify index and a briefer key-phrase index, and by means of exercise substantial care within the consistency of the format of the entire manuscripts. The foreign congresses of mechanics are significant occasions of the field—we examine them to the Olympic video games in sports.
