IMA Numerical Methods for Simulation, Sep 2015, United Kingdom

Posted By: Pamela Bye
Date:Fri, 27 Mar 2015, 12:19 p.m.

United Kingdom, September 1, 2015

Numerical methods are important in diverse areas such as
geophysical modelling, fluid-structure interaction, high-
dimensional dynamical systems, weather prediction, climate
modelling, oil reservoir simulation, and so on.



Developments in numerical methods underpin simulations in
many ways, for example in any area where high dimensional
problems are governed by differential equations.
Computational fluid dynamics has driven many developments
in this area; however there is a wide range of application
areas where the problems, and indeed solution techniques
may be similar.
The conference will bring together application specialists,
applied mathematicians, numerical analysts and
computational scientists who develop and use numerical
simulations. Applications which focus on data assimilation,
inverse problems, uncertainties or control, which contain
as a major component a high-dimensional forward model, will
also be represented.

The Institute for Computational Fluid Dynamics, founded in
1983 by Bill Morton and Mike Baines, previously ran a
successful sequence of international conferences based on
themes of relevance to fluid dynamics. The IMA conference
series reprises this original vision, but opens up a wider
range of themes which are similar to those in fluid
dynamics, now including all areas of numerical simulation.

Conference themes
For the first IMA Conference on Numerical Methods in
Simulation, the themes will be:

o Higher-order discretization methods
o Methods for uncertainty quantification
o Multi-physics / multi-material / multi-scale
o High performance computing (including energy
efficient algorithms and algorithms for emerging
o Optimization / control / design / inverse problems
o Numerical analysis / numerical linear algebra and

Invited Speakers
Prof Mike Giles (Oxford University Mathematical Institute)
Prof Michael Hintermueller (Universität zu Berlin)
Prof Jan Nordbotten (University of Bergen)
Prof. Dr Ulrich Ruede (University Erlangen-Nuremberg)
Dr Peter Vincent (Imperial College London)
Dr Garth Wells (University of Cambridge)
Prof. Dr Barbara Wohlmuth (Technische Universität München)

Submission of Abstracts
Abstracts are requested for contributed talks in any area
consistent with the conference themes. Talks will be
accepted for either oral or poster presentation on the
basis of a one-page extended abstract in PDF format, which
should be sent via email to by
Friday 27 March 2015.

All oral presentations will be in plenary sessions.
Applications are especially encouraged for poster
presentations, and these will be given higher prominence
than at other similar conferences.

No formal proceedings will be published, although extended
abstracts will be distributed to all participants.
Contributors will retain copyright and are encouraged to
submit their work to journals, perhaps with an
acknowledgement that the paper was presented and worked on
at the 2015 IMA Conference on Numerical Methods for
