Numerical modeling of plasmas

July 21 - August 29, CIRM, Marseille

CEMRACS concept

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 and takes place every year at CIRM in Luminy (Marseille, France) during 6 weeks. The goal of this event is to bring together scientists from both the academic and industrial communities and discuss these topics.
During the first week, a classical summer school is proposed. It consists of 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 rechearch projects, possibly after a morning seminar.


Cemracs'14 will be the nineteenth of the series, devoted this year to the numerical modeling of plasmas. The summer school will focus on numerical strategies for simulation of ionized flows in situation of strong coupling between hydrodynamic, magnetic waves and kinetics of the plasma. Moreover, the large disparity in space and time scales requires efficient multi-scale resolution methods (on non structured or adaptive meshes). One aim of the projects session be will to stimulate exchanges between the MCF (Magnetic Confinement Fusion) and ICF (Inertial Confinement Fusion) communities.
Cemracs'14 will consist of two joint events:


Martin Campos-Pinto (CNRS and Université Pierre et Marie Curie), Frédérique Charles (Université Pierre et Marie Curie), Hervé Guillard (Inria and Université de Nice Sophia-Antipolis), Boniface Nkonga (Université de Nice Sophia-Antipolis and Inria).
