Miloš Kojić, president of the SSCM 

Serbian Society for Computational Mechanics (SSCM) was founded on 28 June 2006 during First South-East European Conference on Computational Mechanics (SEECCM06). The Conference was held in the City of Kragujevac. The founding document was hand-written by professor Manolis Papadrakakis, and the text was prepared by professors Papadrakakis and Onate. It was then signed by the participants of the Conference. The copy of the original founding document was published in the first volume of the Journal of the Serbian Society for Computational Mechanics (JSSCM). The presidency and the president were elected. In this short review, we summarize the main achievements of the SSCM. First, it can been stated that establishing SSCM was a big event and it had enormous significance for the development of the field and attraction of young investigators. The SSCM became a member of international associations: International Association of Computational Mechanics (IACM) and European Community on Computational Methods in Applied Ssciences (ECCOMAS). This membership provided a direct contact with these important associations for guidance and participation in the word leading meetings and conferences.
