International Workshop on Multiscale Modeling and Simulation

April 25 - 27, 2014


Multiscale analysis, modeling, and simulation have already made significant impact in many scientific disciplines, including biology, chemistry, energy, environmental science, fluid dynamics, russ-caflischgeophysics, information science, materials science, and social science. While there is a growing awareness of the importance of multiscale approaches and exciting new developments, much of the recent progress to date has been problem-specific. There is an urgent need to develop systematic approaches to analysis and simulation of multiscale problems that can be applied to a wide range of applications. This effort poses new challenge to the applied and computational mathematics community.

The objective of this workshop is to bring together leading experts, junior researchers, students and practitioners with interest in the theoretical, computational and practical aspects of multiscale problems. The workshop will provide a forum to exchange and stimulate new ideas from different disciplines, and to formulate new challenging multiscale problems that will have impact in applications.

This workshop will include a poster session; a request for posters will be sent to registered participants in advance of the workshop.

This workshop also celebrates the 60th birthday of Russel Caflisch.

In honor of Russ’ birthday, IPAM will hold a banquet on Saturday, April 26, at 6pm. If you’d like to join us please make sure to purchase your tickets at Eventbrite. Please make sure to purchase your tickets by April 17th (Thursday) so that we have an accurate count.

We gratefully acknowledge financial support from the DOE and ONR for this event.
