This Congress was organised in partnership with the Royal Swedish Academy of Engineering Sciences.

At the time, Tor Dahl was President of WCPS, and Martin T. Tveit was President of WAPS (having been appointed upon the death of Dr. Krish Pennathur in 1992).

At the Stockholm Congress, Dr. A.N. Saxena from India was elected as President of WAPS but had to decline the appointment due to other commitments. Dr. Scott Sink, who had been elected as Vice-President was therefore appointed President of WAPS.
