The problems of fluid flow control and optimization are becoming one of the fastest evolving and most important areas of fluid mechanics. The aim of this summer school is to present a comprehensive series of lectures on various aspects of fluid flow control and optimization and their role in mathematical analysis and numerical simulation of different types of flows. The summer school is organized as a multidisciplinary event with topics ranging from theoretical and numerical mathematics up to physics and applications. The emphasize will be on models related to topics originating in environmental, biomedical and industrial applications. The summer course is prepared for graduate students, young scientists, and other interested specialists. Besides of the course lectures, the program will include a one day workshop dedicated to short, more advanced lectures given by attending scientists.
Organized by: Tomáš Bodnár – Czech Technical University in Prague, ERCOFTAC PC Czech Republic
Giovanni Paolo Galdi – University of Pittsburgh, USA
Šárka Nečasová – Institute of Mathematics, Czech Academy of Sciences
More invited speakers to appear soon (including CFD and industrial applications)
The above presented Summer School is already fifth in the series started in 2011. The previous events were:
Now it has developed into a regular (bi-anual) series of thematic summer schools running under a common label “Prague-Sum”. All the information, presentations, course materials as well as the photos from those events are made openly available to public at the dedicated permanent web page http://prague-sum.com/
The events in 2011, 2014, 2016 and 2018 were supported by ERCOFTAC and used its logo. The summer schools are organized as purely non-profit events. All the money gained from the registration fees and various grants are exclusively (and completely) spent to organization costs (including also refreshment, lunches, social programme, etc.), reimbursement of the travel and living costs for invited speakers and young researchers.
During the years, the summer school gained quite a good reputation and excellent feedback from the participants. Based on the outstanding quality of the speakers and courses, two books were already published by Birkhäuser – Springer (third book will appear in few months, fourth book is under preparation). The already published books are:
1) Fluid-Structure Interaction and Biomedical Applications (based on the summer school from 2011) - https://link.springer.com/book/10.1007/978-3-0348-0822-4
2) Particles in Flows (based on the summer school from 2014) - http://www.springer.com/gp/book/9783319602813
