Registration is now open for the spring school Lattice Boltzmann
Methods with OpenLB Software Lab that will be held in Hammamet,
Tunisia, from 6. to 10. March 2017. The spring school introduces
scientists and applicants from industry to the theory of LBM and
trains them on practical problems. The first three days are dedicated
to the theoretical fundamentals of LBM up to ongoing research on
selected topics. Followed by two days of mentored training on case
studies using OpenLB, the participants gain deep inside into LBM and
its applications. This educational concept is probably unique in the
LBM community and offers a comprehensive and personal guided approach
to LBM. Participants also benefit from the knowledge exchange during
poster session, coffee breaks and the excursion at the Mediterranean
sea. We look forward to your participation.

possible communication across the different communities.

Conference topics: Integrable systems; Nonlinear waves in fluids;
Soliton theory; Nonlinear evolution PDEs; Orthogonal polynomials;
Mathematical biology; Coherent structures in shear flows and
transition to turbulence.

QUIET 2017 - Quantification of Uncertainty: Improving Efficiency and
Technology, http://indico.sissa.it/event/8
The workshop will take place in SISSA (International School for
Advanced Studies), Trieste, Italy, July 18-21, 2017.

We encourage PhD students and early postdocs (less than 2 years from PhD)
already active in uncertainty quantification research to participate
in the workshop and present a poster. Abstracts (together with a short
CV) can be submitted through the online submission system
http://indico.sissa.it/event/8/call-for-abstracts/ where they can also
find detailed instructions for submission and additional information
regarding their presentations.

This workshop is focused on the review of recent algorithmic and
mathematical advances and on the development of new research
directions for uncertainty quantification in the setting of partial
differential equations with random inputs.

Expected outcomes of the workshop include: the construction of
guidelines for the most promising directions of near-future research;
synergistic exchanges across topics of recent and even unpublished
progress and results; and exposure of a sizable group of junior
researchers to new problem areas and directions.

The workshop will focus on problems with a high number of random
parameters and on specific avenues that have recently shown
considerable promise. Specifically, reduced-order modeling; more
efficient solvers; high-dimensional approximation; and applications.
