      • An Introduction to Compressive Sensing and its Applications [abstract]
      • The Mathematics of Compressive Sensing [abstract]
    • Irad Yavneh, Technion - Israel Institute of Technology
  • Mimetic Discretizations
    Invited speakers:
    • Pavel Bochev, Sandia National Laboratory
      • Part 1: Mimetic discretizations and what they can do for you [abstract]
      • Part 2: Mimetic Discrete Models with Weak Material Laws, or Least Squares Methods Revisited [abstract]
    • Alain Bossavit, Laboratoire de Génie Électrique de Paris, Université Paris Sud
      • Geometric structures underlying mimetic approaches [abstract]
      • Consistent extensions of mimetic techniques to coupled problems [abstract]
    • Blair Perot, University of Massachusetts Amherst
      • Discrete Calculus Methods and Their Application in Fluid Dynamics [abstract]
      • The Relationship between Discrete Calculus Methods and other Numerical Methods that Capture Physics Well [abstract]

Organising committee 2011: Barry Koren (chair), Jason Frank, Kees Oosterlee, Rob Stevenson, Margreet Nool (secretary)

Poster session: All participants are invited to present a poster concerning their research. Every presenter of a poster will receive a one-minute slot in the conference programme (in a plenary session) to attract the attention to his or her poster. One conference session, will be devoted to the poster presentations.

Impression poster session Woudschoten 2010

Submission of a poster is made on the electronic conference registration form by providing a title (in English), or one can send a title to the secretary by e-mail not later than 1 September 2011.
Moreover, all presenters are asked to submit a show page to be displayed during their one minute of the one-minute session. Requirements: it must be a PDF file, consisting of one page only in landscape orientation; make it effective for displaying during one minute. The PDF file should be e-mailed to the secretary; alternatively, it can be uploaded when completing the registration for the conference.

Again this year, a jury, consisting of the keynote speakers under the leadingship of the conference chair, will rate the best posters.
The winners of 2010 were:

  1. Julia Mikhal
    Shear Stress Predictions for a Model Aneurysm using the Immersed Boundary Method
  2. Miranda van Wijngaarden-van Rossum
    Modelling Biogrout, a new ground improvement method
  3. Serguey Zemskov
    Mathematical model for bacterial self-healing cracks in concrete

Support: The Conferences of the Dutch-Flemish Numerical Analysis Communities are held yearly, organised by the Werkgemeenschap Scientific Computing (WSC).


Financial Support: Financial support for this conference is provided by the Centrum Wiskunde & Informatica (CWI), the 3TU Applied Mathematics Institute (3TU.AMI), the Netherlands Organization for Scientific Research (NWO), and the Research Foundation Flanders (FWO-Vlaanderen).
The Werkgemeenschap Scientific Computing is very grateful.

Conference fees, due upon registration, are:

  • 435,00 € for conference and two nights lodging in the Conference Centre Woudschoten, which includes breakfasts, lunches and dinners,
  • 257,50 € for conference, lunches and dinners,
  • 187,50 € for conference and lunches only.

In case you can not attend the conference for the whole period, please contact Margreet Nool. A special arrangement can be made.

Both conference registration and submission of a poster presentation can be done by using the electronic registration form ultimately on 26 August 2011. For late payments received after 1 September 2011 the charged fees are increased by 25 €. Note that the number of available rooms are limited.
