INI/WIMCS MEETINGS


 

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.

Full details of programme etc here

 

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.

As part of the INI-WIMCS Meeting on Noncommutative Geometry, held at Cardiff University, 16-20 April there are two LSW Frontiers Events on the sub-

theme of "The Standard Model and Beyond" Further details here

Wednesday 18 April 19.15 Fields Medalist Alain Connes (College de France, IHES and Vanderbilt) "The spectral point of view on Geometry and Physics" Further details here



 

Meeting 2011


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)..



Organisers


The scientific organisers of the meeting are:
  • Mark Ainsworth, University of Strathclyde
  • Charles M. Elliott, University of Warwick

Meeting Format


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

  • 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
