This volume contains the Proceedings of the the First Pan-American Congress on Computational Mechanics, PANACM 2015 and the XI Argentine Congress on Computational Mechanics, MECOM 2015, held in Buenos Aires, Argentine, April 27?29, 2015. PANACM 2015 is the first conference organized under the auspices of the International Association for Computational Mechanics (IACM) to promote the Computational Mechanics in the Americas as a one region. The purpose of PANACM series is to promote achievements by encouraging young researchers, stimulating education in universities, disseminating modern trends in the field amongst scientists and engineering and mainly, facilitating the interchange of knowledge between the North and the South. The main objective of PANACM 2015 is to become a forum for state of the art presentations and discussions of mathematical models, numerical methods and computational techniques for solving problems of multidisciplinary character in science and engineering. The conference goal is to make a step forward in the formulation and solution of real life problems with a multidisciplinary nature and industrial interest, accounting for all the complex mathematical models involved in the physical description of the problem. PANACM 2015 is organized in conjunction with the XI Argentine Congress on Computational Mechanics, MECOM 2015, a traditional and very well known congress in the Argentinean science community. PANACM 2015, together with MECOM 2015, has attracted around 600 participants, coming from all over the world. All together some 540 lectures will be presented, including 8 Plenary lectures, 12 Semi-Plenary lectures and 43 Keynote Lecturers, which reflect the current state of the research and advances in engineering practice in the Computational Mechanics science. The International Centre for Numerical Methods in Engineering (CIMNE) organizes this Conference jointly with the Asociación Argentina de Mecánica Computacional (AMCA). The organizers acknowledge the encouragement and support of CIMNE and AMCA and the special interest of the IACM, under whose auspices this conference is held. All accepted abstracts can be found online on the website of PANACM 2015: http://congress. cimne.com/panacm2015/frontal/ProgIntro.asp. Submitted full papers have been published in an e-book (ISSB: 978-84-943928-2-5), also available on the website: http://congress.cimne. com/panacm2015/frontal/doc/EbookPANACM2015.pdf. The organizers would like to thank the authors for submitting their contributions and for their respect of the deadlines. Special thanks go to the colleagues who contributed to the organization of the 45 Mini-Symposia to be presented during the Congress.
