Summer school: Mechanics for the green economy

as's picture

Organizers are proud to announce the International Summer school


Mechanics for the green economy: Modeling and High Performance Computing in 

multi-scale and multi-physics processes.


to be held in 


Brescia and Trento, Italy, on 19-25 July 2017.


The school, organized in synergy with the international congress CERMODEL ( ), aims at investigating the challenges and opportunities of materials for the green economy, at promoting innovative visions in multi-scale modeling and multi-physics of materials, at exploring and implementing high-performance, massively parallel computing codes.


Registration feeshave been kept as small as possible. The 150 euros fee package includes 5 lunches (Wed 19 to Tue 25), lecture notes, and wi-fi internet access. They do not include accommodation and the social event on Saturday July 22 on the lake of Garda. Agreements have been reached with hosting facilities, which will provide excellent and convenient accommodation. 10 fellowships, which will grant free registration to the school and partial reimbursement of the travel costs, are available to non-Italian students. Participants who register to CERMODEL can register to the school with a 50 euros fee.
