2nd Frontiers of Computational Physics Conference: Energy

2nd Frontiers in Computational Physics Conference: Energy Sciences

3-5 June 2015, Zurich, Switzerland

Conference Chair:
Petros Koumoutsakos, ETH 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.

Keynote presentations will be given by leading authorities in the field.
