Advances in discontinuous Galerkin Methods and related topics


Heidelberg, December 14 - 16, 2015

For the recent decades, discontinuous Galerkin methods have seen a period of rapid growth in the development of their methodology and analysis. They are now established in a wide range of applications. This workshop convenes many of the long term leaders of the field and leading experts in applications of numerical methods. We will review the development, discuss the state of the art, and identify future directions of research with high potential. MATCH postdocs and students of HGS MathComp are invited to join the discussion, contribute and receive information directly from the experts.


The Conference will be hosted at the Internationales Wissenschaftsforum Heidelberg, Heidelberg, Germany
Hauptstrasse 242 69117 Heidelberg


The Workshop fee amounts 150 Euro and includes the conference dinner on Tuesday, all food and drinks during the Workshop and the coffee breaks.
Paying in cash at the event is welcome!
