They are delivered by individuals who have made significant contributions to the field of applied mechanics. As a distinctive particularity, the honor to deliver a plenary CANCAM lecture is intended to be a "one in a lifetime" occasion.
Same with other sections of the website, we would like to ask our website visitors to treat the list below as a "work in progress" which we will continue to update with new information as soon as it will become available.
