Maison de la Simulation


Maison de la Simulation (CEA/CNRS/UPS/UVSQ), France will organize ASTRONUM-2018 , the 13th International Conference on Numerical Modeling of Space Plasma Flows in Panama City Beach, Florida, USA, on 25-29 June, 2018. (Evening Welcome Reception and Registration on Sunday, June 24).

The conference will cover the following topics:

(1) Advanced numerical methods for space and astrophysical flows;
(2) Large-scale fluid-based, kinetic, and hybrid simulations;
(3) Turbulence, magnetic reconnection, and ion acceleration processes;
(4) Cosmic ray transport;
 (5) Software packages for modeling and analyzing plasma flows;
(6) Data handling and visualization

with the application to

(1) Physics of the Sun, Heliosphere, and Planetary Magnetospheres;
(2) Interstellar medium and star formation;
(3) Cosmology and galaxy formation;
(4) Dynamo effect;
(5) Stellar Physics.

The purpose of the conference is to bring together leading experts in applied mathematics, space physics, astrophysics, and geophysics to discuss the application of novel numerical algorithms and petascale parallelization strategies to computationally challenging problems. The conference will be structured around invited, 40-minute keynote and 25-minute regular talks, and a limited number of contributed talks, with the attempt to have no parallel sessions. This conference web site will soon provide information about the conference venue, registration, and means of transportation. E-mail inquiries about the meeting should be directed to Nikolai.Pogorelov at uah.edu and Edouard.Audit at cea.fr.
