Call For Papers:International Symposium on High-Fidelity Computational Methods & Applications

Dec 14th ~16th, 2019 

Shanghai, China

Introduction & Objective

The original intention of organizing this symposium is to discuss recent advances of the high-fidelity methods and enhance deployment and industrial applications of the methods in complex fluid flows and related topics, which is enlightened by the 4th Nektar++ workshop 2019.

High-fidelity computational methods are emerging tools that underpin science and engineering. Due to the increasingly stringent precision requirements for industrial designs,  these methods have recently attracted even greater attention. This symposium will bring together world leading experts to discuss novel developments, new perspectives and industrial applications. The ultimate goal of the symposium is to expand the range of application of high-fidelity numerical tools in engineering practice.

During the symposium, a Nektar++ tutorial session will be run for the people who are interested in theories of spectral/hp element methods and parallel implementation of the methods. By the tutorial session, people will learn how to use Nektar++ to carry out high-fidelity high-efficient calculations and analyses for incompressible and compressible complex flows and how to write their own customized solvers by virtue of the Nektar++ hierarchical libraries.

Abstracts are invited on the research, application and deployment of high-fidelity methods with a particular interest in computational mathematics, aerodynamics and hydrodynamics.
