Maison de la Simulation




Due to the uncertainty surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic, including information and directives from health and medical experts and federal, local and state governmental agencies and departments, the Scientific Organizers for ASTRONUM 2020 have decided to cancel this year's meeting. Any registration fees paid for the conference will be refunded in the coming days. New dates for 2021 will be announced later.

Maison de la Simulation (CEA/CNRS/UPS/UVSQ), France welcome you to ASTRONUM-2020 , the 15th International Conference on Numerical Modeling of Space Plasma Flows in Pasadena, California, USA, July 20-24. (Evening Welcome Reception and Registration on Sunday, July 19).

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.
