Conferences and Workshops organized in 2019 in cooperation with or by other institutions
The EGU General Assembly 2019, taking place in Vienna (Austria) on 7–12 April 2019, will bring together geoscientists from all over the world to one meeting covering all disciplines of the Earth, planetary, and space sciences.
The focus of the summer school is on phase field modeling, which is one approach to handle the moving interface and the across-interface discontinuities. Using phase fields, the transition across the interface is smoothed by allowing for a small, but nonzero, width of the interface. This smoothing allows for simpler numerical implementation, but also introduces a modeling error. Smoothening of the interface can be done in many ways and is hence not unique, so an important part of phase field modeling is showing that the phase field model reduces to the expected sharp-interface model in the limit as the width of the sharp interface approaches zero. For numerical implementation, special care must be taken to discretize the phase field equation consistently, to properly capture the behavior of the moving interface.
The 2nd DHRTC Summer School will be on the topic Role of subsurface sciences in energy transition. The school is funded by DHRTC and organized by the DHRTC partner institutions (AAU, AU, DTU, GEUS, and KU).
The goal of the school is to provide the participants with a deep understanding on selected topics in energy harvesting methods from the subsurface and their associated challenges and opportunities. This year several renowned guest lecturers are invited to present various topics related to the subsurface operations. There are two lectures and a research seminar given per day of the course. Some sessions will be devoted to presentations from the participants to share ideas with the experts.
The symposium will bring together about 150 participants discussing aspects of coupled thermo-hydro-mechanical-chemical (THMC) processes in geological systems. As the title indicates, the focus is on new and exciting advances in areas of coupled processes associated with a broad range of subsurface engineering, starting with radioactive waste disposal and extending to geothermal exploration, geological carbon sequestration, energy storage, oil and gas production.
Conferences and Workshops organized in 2018 in cooperation with or by other institutions
The EGU General Assembly 2018 will bring together geoscientists from all over the world to one meeting covering all disciplines of the Earth, planetary and space sciences. The EGU aims to provide a forum where scientists, especially early career researchers, can present their work and discuss their ideas with experts in all fields of geoscience. The EGU is looking forward to cordially welcoming you in Vienna.
Louisiana State University and Tulane University are organizing the Interpore 10th Annual Meeting and Jubilee Conference from May 14th to 17th, 2018, in the historic city of New Orleans in the USA.
Computational Methods in Water Resources (CMWR) is a series of conference dating back to 1976 organized every two years alternatively in America and in Europe. It has continuously promoted interdisciplinary approaches relying on excellence in hydrological sciences, mathematical and computational sciences.
Many processes are described by physical laws expressing the conservation of mass, momentum, or energy. Commonly, the related mathematical models are systems of partial and ordinary differential equations. One illustrative example is the air flow around planes under standard flight conditions. In mathematical terms, this flow is modelled by the Navier-Stokes or the Euler equations, which form a particular set of mathematical conservation laws.
The focus of the summer school is on hyperbolic conservation laws. The mathematical treatment of conservation laws is a complex and challenging task. In comparison to other types of equations, the hyperbolic conservation laws may have multiple solutions, which may become non-smooth. This makes both the mathematical analysis and the numerical approximation quite cumbersome. Most of the available results are restricted to simplified and hence non-realistic cases, like one-dimensional problems. In the general situations the existence of solutions is still an open research question. Also, in case of multiple solutions, entropy criteria have to be defined to select the physically relevant solution.
The goal of this summer school is to give the participants a basic introduction to the analysis and the numerics of hyperbolic conservation laws. The focus will be more on an introduction to the concepts including their applications rather than a complete and rigorous discussion of the theory. The summer school will therefore be amenable to mathematicians, engineers and scientists and will be presented in a genuine interdisciplinary context. The summer school will be open to participants having a basic knowledge in calculus and linear algebra courses as they are taught to engineers and scientists. All sessions will be hands-on, meaning that sufficient time for exercises and their discussion is planned.
This biennial Gordon Research Conference has become the premier venue for researchers from academia, national labs, and industry to share their latest ideas and exciting research findings related to flow and transport in permeable media.
The Gordon Research Seminar on Flow and Transport in Permeable Media is a unique forum for graduate students, post-docs, and other early career scientists with comparable levels of experience and education to present and exchange new data and cutting edge ideas.
The idea of this workshop is to bring together the leading researchers and PhD students interested in fundamental research on crystallization in porous media, to provide for a constructive and open dialogue and to incite collaborations between theorists and experimentalists at an international level.
The workshop will be jointly organized by the Department of Chemistry at the University of Hamburg and SIK (Salze im Kulturgut e.V.).
The AGU 2018 Fall Meeting will mark another dynamic year of discovery in Earth and space science, serve as the advent of AGU’s Centennial year, and provide a special opportunity to share our science with world leaders in Washington, D.C. As the largest Earth and space science gathering in the world, the Fall Meeting places you in the center of a global community of scientists drawn from myriad fields of study whose work protects the health and welfare of people worldwide, spurs innovation, and informs decisions that are critical to the sustainability of the Earth.
