|2005 IAC EVENTS
Field Simulation Days at IMACS 2005
July 11-15, 2005, Paris
|| EUA4X Computational
Field Simulation Days was a guest event in the 17th IMACS World
on Scientific Computation, Applied Mathematics and Simulation (IMACS
2005). Participants had the opportunity to meet inspirational
leaders in the academia, network with other talented
researchers and professionals and participate to special sessions
of IMACS 2005 on Numerical Grid Generation and Field Computing. The
sessions dealt with the presentation and discussion of innovative
technologies of scientific computing. 16 papers of outstanding authors
from all around the world illustrated new advanced approaches and
computational results in this field. Lecturers of the educational
sessions were Prof. Robert Vichnevetsky, founder and Honorary President
of IMACS, who illustrated the crucial role of computers in research,
Dr. Rosa Maria Spitaleri (IAC-CNR) event organizer and session
chair, who introduced basic grid generation approaches and Prof Luca
Formaggia of MOX, well known expert in unstructured and adaptive grid
15 EU fellowships were accepted and assigned to young participants to attend the event.
Rosa Maria Spitaleri
in Numerical Grid Generation: From Theory to Practice
October 3-7, 2005, Lecce
|| The basic aim of the
course is to provide a state of the art in numerical grid generation.
Ranging from theoretical to application approaches the method overview
deals with effective solutions of domain discretization problems
occuring in computational field simulations. Participants will be
introduced to grid generation expectations and appropriate solution
methods, to structured and unstructured grids or mixed approaches, to
grid quality investigation and adaption by an application oriented
training which is planned to include complementary participants'
Numerical grid generation can be defined as the art of locating a discrete sets of point in a field. As better the points are placed as more accurately phenomenon information can be kept so that specific behaviours of characteristic physical quantities can be deeper investigated by numerical simulation. Domain discretization is a basic step in computational simulation, that is in processes of scientifc computing designed to handle advanced simulations in several application fields. This crucial step requires grid generation technology to be continuously improved.
Young researchers' active practice will include introducing their own research, experiencing grid generation, leading up a poster session and facing internationally know experts in the field. Joining international scientific communities allows the view on current resarch directions and chances to meet leading experts in grid generation and computational simulation to be extended.
20 EU fellowships are offered to young participants to attend the conference.

| This two EU
sponsored workshops are part of the EUA4X project, the "European
Atelier For Engineering and Computational Sciences" financed by the
European Union "Marie Curie Conferences and Training Courses Program".
A limited number of fellowships is available for young researchers
covering participation costs (including travel and accomodation).
