SWAYAM 2020 is the second in the series of SWAYAM conferences, continuing from previous successful edition at BITS Pilani- Goa Campus. SWAYAM 2020 is organized by the Indian Society for Applied Mechanics (ISAM) & Bapurao Deshmukh College of Engineering, Sewagram.

SWAYAM 2020 will provide a technical platform for discussion among researchers in the broad area of Applied Mechanics and Appropriate technology. The conference will feature plenary and invited lectures from experts, oral presentations etc.

We expect enthusiastic participation from students and young researchers, from faculty at various universities across the country, from colleagues in research labs and in industry. Sponsors and exhibitors will showcase technological advances of interest to the applied mechanics community. We are expecting a wonderful conference and hope that you will join us.
