Conference on Computational PDE 2015

Date : 21-23 December, 2015 
Venue: TIFR-CAM, Bangalore

The conference aims to bring together researchers working on finite difference and finite volume methods for solving various types of Partial Differential Equations to present their latest research work. The conference will have both invited and contributed talks. We encourage you to submit contributed papers on novel and high order accurate schemes, and on the numerical analysis of such schemes. We also encourage participation from mathematics and engineering departments and hope that the conference will provide a platform for interdisciplinary discussions.

There is no registration fees for attending the conference.
