Joint Isaac Newton/WIMCS Meeting 2012
From Monday 16th April - Friday 20th April 2012, the Isaac Newton Institute for Mathematical Sciences (INI), Cambridge, and the Wales Institute of Mathematical and Computational Sciences (WIMCS) will jointly hold a meeting on Noncommutative Geometry at Cardiff University.

This will be a follow-up meeting which, hopefully, will build upon the success of the six-month research programme, of the same name, that was held at the INI in 2006.
Financial support for the meeting has been provided by the INI and WIMCS.
In April 2011, the Isaac Newton Institute for Mathematical Sciences (INI), Cambridge, and the Wales Institute of Mathematical and Computational Sciences (WIMCS) will jointly organise a meeting on Computational Challenges in Partial Differential Equations at Swansea University. The meeting will start on Monday, April 4th and end on Friday, April 8th.
This will be a follow-up meeting which, hopefully, will build upon the success of the six-month research programme, of the same name, that was held at the INI in 2003.
Financial support for the meeting has been provided by the INI, WIMCS and the Centre for Numerical Analysis and Intelligent Software (NAIS)..
The scientific organisers of the meeting are:
- Mark Ainsworth, University of Strathclyde
- Charles M. Elliott, University of Warwick
- Kenneth Morgan, Swansea University
- Endre Süli, University of Oxford
The meeting will consist of eight half-day sessions, each concentrating on a particular research area that is currently attracting significant interest within the community. The sessions will address the following themes:
- Multiscale modelling
- Interface modelling
- PDEs on surfaces and geometric evolution problems
- Biomedical applications, including new modelling techniques and patient-specific applications
- Computational rheology
- Atomistic-to-continuum passage, density functional theory and quasi-continuum methods
- Low order modelling: widening the range of high-fidelity time-dependent simulations
- Uncertainty modelling
Each half-day session will consist of invited presentations by four leading scientists. The following have agreed to participate and make presentations:
- A. Abdulle, EPFL, Switzerland
