April 20-22, 2009
Workshop on Computational Methods for Hyperbolic Problems
University of Waterloo, Department of Applied Mathematics

Local Organizers : Lilia Krivodonova, Department of Applied Mathematics, University of Waterloo

The goal of this workshop is to bring together active researchers in the area of numerical solutions for hyperbolic problems. A variety of numerical schemes for hyperbolic systems will be represented, including nite volume, spectral element, discontinuous Galerkin and meshfree methods. Modelling and high performance computing will also be topics covered by the workshop.

ACCOMODATION: Hotel rooms have been pre-reserved in two hotels. Please see the link at the top of this page for more information.

TRAVEL: Please see the link at the top of this page for directions to Waterloo and to the workshop.
