ESSAM School on Mathematical Modelling, Numerical Analysis and Scientific Computing

Date: 29/05/2016  – 03/06/2016
Place: Kácov, Czech Republic

The aim of the school is to promote the interconnection of mathematical modeling, analysis, and computational methods used in solving complex (real-world) problems. The lectures will be prepared with a broad multidisciplinary audience in mind, and at each school a broad scope, ranging from modeling to scientific computing, will be covered. Usually four main speakers deliver a series of three lectures. Ample time within the school is allocated for the promotion of informal scientific discussions among the participants.

Speakers and topics of the 2016 school are:

  • Peter Bastian (Universität Heidelberg, Germany), [Simulation of Multiphase Flows in Porous Media].
  • Jörg Liesen (Technische Universität Berlin, Germany), [Krylov subspaces. Classical mathematics, iterative methods, and surprisinglinks].
  • Jan Mandel (University of Colorado at Denver, USA), [Probability on spaces of functions, with applications to inverse problems and dataassimilation].
  • Richard Katz (University of Oxford, UK), [Two-phase fluid dynamics of partially molten rock: fundamentals and application to the Earth].

The school is organized under the auspices of the European Mathematical Society (EMS) and Faculty of Mathematics and Physics, Charles University in Prague (MFF UK), as an activity of the Nečas Center for Mathematical Modeling. Participants will have a possibility to present a short communication (maximally 10 minutes in the dependence on the number of
participants contributing to this kind of activity).

The deadline for registration and submission of abstracts is May 2, 2016.

Registration is now open at including the additional information about the venue, program and deadlines.
