IMUM 2017 - Stanford University

Aug 29-Sep 1, 2017

Workshop schedule

The 16th International workshop on Multi-scale (Un)-structured mesh numerical Modeling for coastal, shelf, and global ocean dynamics (IMUM 2017) will be held at Stanford University during August 29-September 1, 2017. Following the tradition of alternating between Europe and North America every year, IMUM 2016 was held at LEGOS Ocean Science Laboratory in Toulouse, and IMUM 2015 was held at the Center for Coastal Margin Observation and Prediction (CMOP) in Portland.

The IMUM workshops bring together researchers working on the development and implementation of unstructured-grid methods for simulation of oceanic processes over a wide range of scales ranging from global ocean modeling to small-scale, nonhydrostatic modeling. Topics of discussion range from application of unstructured-grid models to numerical methods and computational algorithms, as well as grid generation, graphical visualization, data analysis, and implementation of software packages.

Presentations will be held during Tuesday through Thursday with the possibility of holding a discussion session on tools and methods on Friday morning. A conference dinner will be held on Wednesday evening.

Invited speakers

  • Ethan Kubatko, Ohio State University
  • Sigrun Ortleb, University of Kassel
  • Natalja Rakowsky, Alfred Wegener Institute
  • Guus Stelling, Delft University of Technology
