The Graz Center of Computational Engineering (GCCE) originates from an initiative from members of 5 faculties of TU Graz. Its aim is to foster interdisciplinary activities for developing numerical simulations that allow the investigation of natural and engineering problems. A workshop held in 2016 marks the origin of the GCCE. Founder members of this initiative are
