The scientific program of CFRAC 2023 is composed of 5 plenary lectures, a special fracture benchmark (to be announced later) and 13 minisymposia devoted to various topics within the general theme of computational fracture and failure. Each minisymposium will feature one or more sessions, typically with 5 or 6 presentations per session. The list below contains the title of each minisymposium and the names of its organizers. Short descriptions of individual minisymposia can be displayed by clicking on the minisymposium title.
