Dear Colleagues,

We invite you to participate in the

    "XV Spanish-French School on Numerical Simulation in Physics and Engineering"

to be held in Torremolinos, Málaga (Spain) on September 24-28, 2012.

These schools, promoted by the Sociedad Española de Matemática Aplicada (SEMA) and the Société de Mathématiques Appliquées et Industrielles (SMAI), are aimed at master students, PhD students, recent PhD doctorates, and researchers in general willing to update their knowledge with recent developments on numerical techniques that play an important role in the international scene. As this type of techniques are useful in the mathematical modeling of many  phenomena, researchers coming from different fields (mathematics, physics, engineering, biology, economics, etc) can be interested.

The core of the school, whose official language is English, will be composed by four 4-hour courses:

?    Begoña Calvo Calzada. Universidad de Zaragoza

      Fundamental aspects in modelling soft tissues behaviour

?    Emmanuel Gobet. École Polytechnique, París

      Introduction to stochastic calculus and to the resolution of PDEs using Monte Carlo simulations

?    Enrique D. Fernández NietoUniversidad de Sevilla

      Some remarks on avalanches modelling

?    Philippe G. LeFloch. Université Pierre et Marie Curie & CNRS

      New trends in shock-capturing schemes. Geometric effects, controled dissipation, and late-time asymptotics

The courses will be complemented with the following 1-hour talks:

?    Carlos Castro Barbero. Universidad Politécnica de Madrid
      Numerical approximation of optimal design problems in aerodynamics. From the mathematical analysis to industrial codes

?    Michel Langlais. Université Bordeaux 2
      A further multiscale problem: spatio-temporal spread of an airborne plant pathogen through a highly anthropized and spatially structured crop system

?    Fabien Mangeant. EADS
      Statistical learning and reduced model techniques for uncertainty management in computer experiments

?    Emanuele Schiavi. Universidad Rey Juan Carlos
      Medical image processing: mathematical modelling and numerical resolution

?    Denis Talay. INRIA Sophia Antipolis
      On probabilistic approaches of partial differential equations involving a divergence form operator with discontinuous coefficients

To encourage the active participation of attendees, especially from young researchers, there will be a poster session. Interested participants are invited to submit abstracts for the poster session. A number of grants for students will be available.
All the information about abstract submission, registration, important dates, and application for grants can be found on the web site:

  Best regards,

 The organizing committee.
