Description of the topic of the session:
Realistic mathematical models in many strategic fields such as human disease prevention and image processing require the solution of large scale nonlinear problems. Nonlinear PDEs, nonlinear least squares and unconstrained optimization and combinations of them are only a few examples of flexible (and very popular) tools used in these models.
In order to get reliable and fast
simulations, the use of appropriate techniques for the solution of the
discretized version of the underlying model usually a large system of nonlinear
equations and the systems of linear equations generated during various
linearization steps is very important. This session aims to bring together some scientists that devise new realistic nonlinear models and some who introduce efficient and reliable computational techniques for the numerical solution with a rigorous analysis on the other.

Email: michaela.saisana@jrc.ec.europa.eu
Description of the topic of the session:
In recent years, numerous approaches to measure complex issues at the local and global scale have emerged in the form of aggregate measures. Some advantages of aggregate measures (else composite indicators) include their ability to summarize multidimensional issues, generate ranked lists, track progress over time, facilitate public communication, gauge policy analysis, and promote accountability. On the other hand, aggregate measures may invite simplistic policy conclusions, disguise serious failings in certain dimensions and consequently hamper implementation of proper remedial action, and give rise to inappropriate policies if difficulttomeasure indicators of performance are ignored from the conceptual framework. While the debate between advocates and detractors may never be settled, policy analysts will continue to develop rankings and ratings (e.g., Brand et al., 2007), and policymakers will continue to rely on them for decisionmaking. To maximize their utility and minimize their misuse, developers must be based on the best available evidence, design the composite indicators with transparent structures, and assess the composite indicators using appropriate multivariate and sensitivity analyses (Saisana et al. 2005, Tarantola et al., 2006). Sensitivity analysis acknowledges various methodological assumptions that are intrinsic to policy research and assesses whether results change substantially when those assumptions vary over a reasonable range of possibilities (Saltelli et al. 2008, OECD, 2008, , Saisana and Tarantola 2002). Despite the importance of this methodological stage, critical issues of uncertainty, sensitivity and robustness receive minimal attention in the majority of available rankings and ratings. Most index creators provide no evidence on, for instance, the choice of linear aggregation over multiplicative aggregation or the need for multiple levels of aggregation. The same is true for the logic behind indicator weights, indicator rescaling, handling of missing values, and so forth. In particular, questions of indicator weighting and linear aggregation require cautiousness due to the potential for indicator compensation. Overall, rankings and ratings need to consider and incorporate findings from disciplines such as econometrics and statistics to manage problems of uncertainty introduction, to strengthen index validity and to advance the methodological quality of those indices (Cherchye et al., 2008, Munda et al., 2009). Up to now, most
indices remain in academic settings with limited applied exposure  except
indices developed by large institutions such as the United Nations or the World
Health Organisation. In order to move beyond theoretical discussions of indices
and their validity, it is necessary to implement the most promising indices as
tools for detecting, monitoring and benchmarking performance in the relevant
fields of interest. Only rigorous usage by the practitioner community will
ultimately uncover reliability and feasibility flaws. References: 23) Title: "1st Symposium on Analysis of Quantum Field Theory" Organizer: Dr. Ralf Hofmann, Privatdozent, Institut fuer Theoretische Physik, Universitaet Heidelberg, Philosophenweg 16, 69120 HEIDELBERG, Tel.: (06221) 549422

Lushnikov, Department of Mathematics and Statistics, University of New Mexico and Dr. Alexander Korotkevich, Department of Mathematics and Statistics, University of New Mexico
Email: plushnik [a t] math.unm.edu
Description of the topic of the session:
Progress in the development of new
tools for modern applied mathematics resulted in a better understanding in
science of nonlinear waves in various fields of nonlinear optics, hydrodynamics,
and plasmas. The universality of the equations describing wave processes is one
of the most important components of this success. Nonlinear Schroedinger
equation is among best illustrations of successful application of applied
mathematics as a tool to analyze various nonlinear phenomena ranging from
optical communications to ocean waves. Solutions of nonlinear equations usually
results in formation of singularities, coherent structures or solitary waves.
Examples of the corresponding phenomena can be observed in filamentation of
laser beams in nonlinear media, wave

Description of the topic of the session:
Plant growth modeling is scientifically and technically a challenging topic that finds its applications in many fields of research, in particular in plant biology, agronomy and forestry. Great effort is made today in developing new agronomical practices, as well as in improving plant production through breeding programs, in order to supply food to a growing population. Scientists aware that these practices must at the same time minimize the impact on the environment, limiting the use of chemical fertilizers or pesticides. For this purpose, new approaches based on computational  or numerical – plants have been recently developed, which are an interesting alternative to time consuming (several years to several decades) and expansive experimental studies.

Description of the topic of the session:
The objectives of this symposium are to foster research on the modelling of materials with microstructure. Liquid crystals, porous media and polymers for instance have an underlying structure that directly influences the macroscopic properties (strength, stiffness, permeability…), and their modelling cannot be accurately performed by using the principles of usual continuum mechanics.
We invite original research contribution covering the broad area of modelling continua with microstructure.
Subjects will include methods of kinematical enrichment, as proposed by theories of generalized continua. We will also put great interest in multiscale descriptions explicitly describe the influence of processes occurring at the microscopic scale, on the macroscopic one. 40) Title: "The 3rd Symposium on Variational Inequalities and Equilibrium Problems"

The theory of Variational Inequalities was born in Italy in order to solve a group of nonlinear boundary value problems for partial differential equations of elliptic or parabolic type, as, for example, the Signorini problem, the obstacle problem and the elasticplastic torsion problem. Now, it has many applications in several equilibrium type problems deriving by Economics, Engineering, Operations Research, Statistics, Financial Networks and Mathematical Physics. In particular, Variational Inequalities, for example, provide a unifying framework for the study of diverse problems as price equilibrium problems, traffic network equilibrium problems, oligopolistic market equilibrium problem, vaccination problem, migration problem and financial equilibrium problem. Moreover, several classical and new theories, such as those of Evolutionary Projected Dynamical Systems and Infinite Dimensional Duality, as well as research in discretized computational methods, have received a decisive impulse in order to offer effective solutions to hither to unsolved problems.

Multiobjective optimization problems are those having more than one objective, in general conflicting. These objectives have to be satisfied at the same time. Therefore, for multiobjective problems, no single solution that is optimal with respect to all objectives exists. Instead, there is a set of optimal solutions, known as Pareto optimal solutions, reflecting tradeoffs between objectives. This kind of problems arises from various real world applications. Several algorithms have been proposed to multiobjective optimization.

Description of the topic of the session:
Simulating cardiac electromechanical function is one of the most striking examples of a successful integrative multiscale modeling approach applied to a living system directly relevant to human disease. Today, thanks to nearly fifty years of research in the field and the rapid progress in numerical methods and highperformance computing, we stand at the threshold of a new era: anatomicallydetailed tomographicallyreconstructed models that integrate from the protein level of the ion channel or sarcomere to the electromechanical interactions in the intact heart are being developed. Such models hold high promise for interpretation of clinical and physiological measurements in terms of cellular mechanisms; for improving the basic understanding of the mechanisms of dysfunction in disease conditions, such as reentrant arrhythmias, myocardial ischemia, and heart failure; and for the development and performance optimization of medical devices. The goal of this symposium is to bring together and present recent advances in numerical methods and mathematical modeling of cardiac function and dysfunction, from representations of cellular and subcellular excitation processes and tension development, to the electromechanical interactions in the intact heart.

In a large number of works, many applied mathematical or physical approaches have been proposed, in particular, dynamical systems approaches are quite remarkable ones because of the fact that, more the experimental technologies to observe neural or brain activities in microscopic, mesoscopic, and macroscopic scales progress, more the observed results indicate complex dynamical characteristics. In these situations, we, Dynamic Brain Group (H. Fujii, M. Tsukada, S. Nara, I. Tsuda, K. Aihara), have been insisting that dynamic viewpoint about mechanisms of brain functions is quite important. The main aim of the proposed MiniSymposium is to bring people who are interested in dynamical systems approaches together and to invoke discussions between gathered people to develop research activities furthermore about penetrating into dynamic mechanisms of brain functions, and neural systems as well. The proposed MiniSymposium will be organized by Dynamic Brain Group and will consist of several invited speakers and selected speakers among authors of submitted papers after reviewing. The reviewing will be done by the organizer.

Didier Bresch, LAMA, UMR5127 CNRS, Universite de Savoie, 73376 Le Bourget du
Lac cedex, France Email: mrenardy@math.vt.edu and didier.bresch@univsavoie.fr
Description of the topic of the session:
Many problem in fluid dynamics involve flow domains which are “thin” in one or two directions. Examples include oceanic and atmospheric flows, biological films and all forms of pipeline transport. In many situations it is reasonable to make approximations based on thinness, such as the hydrostatic approximation. The resulting thin layer equations, however, are not always widely used in analysis and numerical simulation. The reason for this is that these equations are not necessarily wellposed. Research into wellposedness of thin layer equations has been a very active area over the past decade, leading both to the characterization of cases where wellposedness holds and results showing illposedness in other cases.

Description of the topic of the session:
Because of the increasing availability of significant computational resources at accessible costs and the development of the multicore processor technology, parallel computers with both shared and distributed memory architectures are becoming more and more popular among the practitioners.
However, fully exploiting their
potential might not be trivial and novel numerical algorithms are often
necessary. For example, Krylov subspace methods for the solution of sparse
linear systems or eigenproblems involve matrixvector products, dot products and
vector updates only, so they can be almost ideally implemented on parallel
computers, but the computation and application of an effective preconditioner
often is not, and currently this is one of the most debated issues in scientific
computing.
Both novel algorithms and parallelization of known methods with applications in Science and Engineering are welcome.

Description of the topic of the session:
The growing importance of micromechanical devices and of materials with tailored microstructures has, in conjunction with progress in micronscale mechanical testing, led to a renewed interest in the fundamentals of plastic deformation on micron and submicron scales. While it is clear that crystal plasticity is governed by the stressdriven dynamics of interacting dislocations, the mathematical modelling of dislocation systems continues to pose intriguing conceptual problems. The symposium brings together experts from mathematics, mechanics and computational materials science with the intent of addressing a series of fundamental questions:
Any contributions to these and related topics are welcome. We aim at an open discussion of fundamental issues, rather than a presentation of progress in known directions. In this sense, presentations that raise important and difficult questions are just as welcome as exciting new results.

Description of the topic of the session:
A variety of meshfree methods have been developed over that past decades with applications to partial differenential equations, integral equations, bifurcation analysis, inverse problems, neural networks and artificial intelligence, approximation methods, and many other applications. The numerical solution of partial differential equations (PDEs) has been dominated by either finite difference methods (FDM), finite element methods (FEM), and finite volume methods (FVM). These methods can be derived from the assumptions of the local interpolation schemes. These methods require a mesh to support the localized approximations; the construction of a mesh in three or more dimensions is a nontrivial problem. Typically with these methods only the function is continuous across meshes, but not its partial derivatives.
85) Title: "Innovative Numerical Methods and Analysis for Free Surface and Complex Flows"

nr.33149570436. Email: vitoriano.ruas@upmc.fr
Description of the topic of the session:
The goal of this symposium is to bring together experts in the computer simulation of complex fluid flow with or without a free surface, for exchanges on innovative ideas for solving coupled fluid dynamics and morphodynamics. This includes a wide range of models such as multilayer and depth averaged equations governing coastal hydrodynamics or yet the flow of complex fluids, such as polymer melts and biological fluids. Contributions on the mathematical understanding of the numerical tools, either based on stability and convergence analyses, or yet on comparative studies with other existing methods and on the validation of numerical schemes in problems with known exact solution or wellestablished benchmarks, are particularly welcome. Emphasis is given to the methodology itself and its properties, rather than to specific applications, but illustration of novel numerical methods in the solution of real life problems is to be viewed as an addedvalue feature of performance evaluation.
