List of Minisymposia (newest on top)

  • Applications of FEM in Theoretical Chemistry and Computational Physics (M. Braun, University of South Africa)
    The aim of this minisymposium is to exchange and discuss ideas for the application of the finite element method in theoretical chemistry and computational physics. The main focus will be on methods to solve the three dimensional Schroedinger type equations that result from Hartree Fock / Density Functional and similar approaches applied to small and medium sized molecules and/or periodic solids. It is hoped, that researchers from different groups working on this and related topics will benefit from the interaction and possible collaborative projects emanating from this minisymposium.
  • Uncertainty Quantification in Security Science (A. Luttman and E. Machorro, National Security Technologies)
    Security science" is the name given to basic and applied research whose primary mission is to drive national security policy and decisions based on rigorous scientific analysis. Among the most important problems in security science is to quantify the uncertainty associated with the computational results that are delivered to policymakers. In this session the speakers will present research on computational approaches to uncertainty quantification in linear and nonlinear inverse problems, graph network analysis, experimentation diagnostic analysis, and imaging science.
  • Recent Developments in Adaptivity and A Posteriori Error Analysis (P. Houston, University of Nottingham; T. Barth, NASA AMES; M. Larson, Umea University)
    The exploitation of computable a posteriori error bounds within adaptive mesh-refinement strategies is of fundamental importance to guarantee the reliable and efficient numerical simulation of mathematical models arising in computational science and engineering. The objective of this minisymposium is to present recent work undertaken in this field; in particular, topics of interest will include: dual-weighted-residual error estimation, adaptive model reduction, error estimation of time-dependent problems, and hp-adaptive refinement strategies.
  • Advances in Discontinuous Galerkin Methods for complex wave propagation problems (S. Schnepp, ETH Zurich; S. Lanteri, INRIA)
    This minisymposium is concerned with advances and novel DG techniques for the computer simulation of complex wave propagation problems. Contributions on methodological advances - such as hybridized DG methods, efficient time integration, error estimation and adaptivity - or the modeling of complex situations and materials - such as encountered in nano-sciences, bioelectromagnetics or coupled problems - are most welcome.
  • Numerical modeling of metamaterials (J. Li, UNLV)
    The aim of this minisymposium is to exchange ideas and further explore some major challenges and approaches to numerical modeling of wave propagation in metamaterials, including numerical studies of nonlinear metamaterials, multiscale modeling, material parameters retrieval, optimization algorithms and applications of metamaterials.
  • Coupled problems in electromagnetics (P. Karban, UWB)
    The aim of this minisymposium is to present and discuss state-of-the-art mathematical models, numerical methods, and computational techniques for solving multiphysics coupled problems rooted in electromagnetic fields. Target applications include induction and dielectric heating, electromechanical transducers, and high-voltage phenomena of thermoelasticity.
