Aims: The conference follows on from the successful meetings held in Paris in 2002 and in Oxford in 2005. It aims to bring together researchers from universities and research labs to discuss the state of the art for multi-material hydrodynamics simulations. It will focus on relevant numerical methods, analysis of these methods and modeling of complex multi-material flows which is essential for research dealing with new sources of energy as inertial confinement fusion.

Topics to be covered include mathematical and physical aspects of

  • Arbitrary Lagrangian Eulerian (ALE) methods
  • Eulerian Methods
  • Mesh Free Methods
  • Material interface modelling
  • Multiphase flow
  • Radiation Hydrodynamics

Important dates:
April 10, 2007 - deadline for abstracts (extended by a month from original deadline March 10, 2007)
May 10, 2007 - decision on acceptance
July 9, 2007 - deadline for early registration

Program: Conference program is available here.

Talks: All speakers will have 30 minutes for each talk including discussion and changing of speakers.
