Summer School and Workshop

Fluid-Structure Interaction for Biomedical Applications

August 29 - September 2, 2011 – Prague, Czech Republic


The aim of the summer school is to present a comprehensive series of lectures on modern as well as classical problems related to fluid-structure interaction. The emphasize will be on mathematical, computational and experimental topics originating in biomedical 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 workshops (on Wednesday, August 31) dedicated to short, more advanced lectures given by attending scientists.

Lecture notes and presentations

The registration will be opened on Sunday, August 28 from 16:00 till 20:00 in the building of the Institute of Mathematics located at Zitna 25, Prague 1 (where the summer school will be held).
