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 research projects, possibly after a morning seminar.
Cemracs'15 will be the twentieth of the series, devoted this year to the simulation of (coupled) multi-physics models involving fluids.
The summer school will focus on fluid coupling in life sciences.
One aim of the projects session be will to stimulate exchanges between faculty members (applied mathematicians, geophysicists or biologists) and industrial partners. The main concerned themes will be:
physiological flows, including multi-scale aspects (e.g.: blood rheology, red blood cells, interaction with vessels ...)
aquatic living systems, seabed and paralic ecosystems, in environments such as lagoons, estuaries, bays,
morphodynamics of continental, coastal and deep sea areas,
coupling offshore and nearshore ocean models,
fluid-structure and fluid-gaz interactions, including elastic cell membranes interacting with fluid, Leidenfrost effect, ebullition crisis, etc.
Cemracs'15 will consist of two joint events:
a one week summer school (July 20 - July 24)
an intensive five weeks long research session (July 23 - August 28).
