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. Cemracs'12 will be the seventeenth of the series, devoted this year to Numerical Methods and Algorithms for High Performance Computing. The goal of this event is to bring together scientists from both the academic and industrial communities and discuss these topics. Cemracs'12 will consist in two joint events:
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.
