November 16, 2012      International Session in honor of Professor Enrique Alarcón in Madrid Spain is attended by GMS

A series of events took place in Madrid (Spain) in order to honor Professor Enrique Alarcón and his more than fifty years of professional and academic experience. Enrique Alarcón had a dedicated career as a teacher, mentor, engineer and author of numerous scientific articles, being awarded and recognized by several societies and institutions. Through the years, he helped a vast number of students at either the School of Industrial Engineering of the University of Seville or the School of Industrial Engineering of the Polytechnic University of Madrid, some of which formed the Organizing Committee of these acts.  Attendees, including Professors and professionals coming from Spain, Portugal, France, Greece, Italy, Switzerland and the USA, gave presentations on the topic "Issues on Computational Mechanics and Civil Engineering", which were published as a book in Professor Alarcón's honor.
Ramon Gilsanz presented a paper about “The need of expansion joints in residential flat plate structures in New York City” authored in collaboration with Jennifer Lan. Later that day, family, friends and colleagues gather together to attend a friendship dinner as a conclusion of the Honoring Meeting.
