Cemracs concept

Cemracs '10 takes place at the CIRM (Marseille, France) from July 19th to August 27th, 2010.

The CEMRACS is a scientific event of the SMAI (the french Society of Applied and Industrial Mathematics). The Cemracs concept was initiated in 1996 by Yvon Maday and Frédéric Coquel (UPMC). Cemracs '10 will be the thirteenth of the series, devoted this year to Numerical Modelling of Fusion aspects in scientific computing. The goal of this event is to bring together scientists from both the academic and industrial communities and discuss these topics. Cemracs '10 consists in two types of events:
  1. a one week summer school (July 19th - 23th),
  2. a five week research session (July 26th - August 27th).

During the first week, a classical summer school is proposed. It consists in several lectures given by leading scientists and related to the topics of the research projects. The remaining 5 weeks are dedicated to working on the research projects, after a daily morning seminar.

Each participant will work in a team on a project proposed by an industrial or an academic partner. Each team will be composed of young researchers assisted by one or more senior researchers. The commitment for the young researchers is to be present for the whole period of the research session. The commitment for the senior researchers is to ensure the management of the project, that is mainly to precise definition of the subject and supervision of the project. Other visiting scientists, interested in the ongoing research, can be associated to the program for shorter periods and are, of course, welcome.

Summer School Speakers

Pierre Degond (CNRS, IMT Toulouse): Asymptotic preserving schemes for fusion modelling
Bruno Després (Paris 6) and Xavier Blanc (CEA): Numerical methods for inertial confinement fusion
Virginie Grandgirard (CEA Cadarache): Numerical methods for magnetic confinement fusion
Stephen C. Jardin (PPPL): MHD simulations for fusion applications
Cédric Villani (ENS Lyon): Landau damping

Scientific Topic of Cemracs '10

This Cemracs is devoted to the mathematical and numerical modeling of plasma problems that occur in magnetic or inertial fusion.

Lectures will detail various aspects of the fusion: mathematical, numerical, modelisation, physical.

The projects will give the opportunity to develop new mathematical models on emerging themes around the problematic of the magnetic or inertial fusion.
