2nd Frontiers in Computational Physics Conference:
Energy Sciences

3-5 June 2015, Zurich, Switzerland

Computation plays an essential role in Energy Sciences with imaging, data analysis and simulation for applications ranging from nuclear to solar and wind energy. We envision that computational methods in areas of multi-scale/multi-physics modeling and uncertainty quantification will help shape research frontiers in Energy research. This three day conference on Frontiers in Computational Physics will provide an international forum for sharing experiences and knowledge on advanced models and computational techniques for Energy systems.

Topics List:

Computational methods in: 

  • Multi-scale Modeling and Simulation
  • Uncertainty Quantification
  • High Performance Computing 

For applications related to:

  • Combustion
  • Nuclear Energy
  • Renewable Energy (solar, wind and wave energy)
  • Exploration, Conversion, Conservation (Storage, geothermal, oil exploration, turbines, cooling systems, etc.)

Abstracts for oral and poster presentations are invited on the conference topics and should be submitted using the online abstract submission system. Cross-disciplinary approaches are highly solicited.

We also encourage submission of your ideas around mini-symposia fitting within the scope of the meeting. Should you have a suggestion and want to organize one, please do get in touch with one of the chairs of the meeting; the scientific committee will discuss and make a quick decision.
