————————–
Numerous models encountered in science and engineering remain nowadays, despite the impressive progresses attained recently in computational simulation techniques, intractable when the usual and well experienced discretization techniques are applied for their numerical simulation. Thus, different challenging issues are waiting for the proposal of new alternative advanced simulation techniques, the brute force approach being no more a valuable alternative. A first challenging issue concerns the treatment of highly multidimensional models arising from quantum mechanics or kinetic theory models of solids or fluids, including micro and nano-structured complex fluids or stochastic problems with numerous variables. The main challenge in the treatment of this kind of models is related to the curse of dimensionality because when one applies standard mesh based discretization the number of degrees of freedom involved scales exponentially with the dimension of the space concerned.
Another issue concerns the solution of transient multiscale models (usually strongly non linear and coupled, and always of high size). These models arise in computational mechanics (involving a large variety of constitutive behaviors, couplings etc.). In this context, the use of standard incremental discretization techniques becomes inefficient from the computational time viewpoint. In general, these models involve different characteristic times and space scales ranging through several decades.
Moreover, in the context of problems optimization of inverse identification many direct problems must be solved. Again, alternative advanced computational techniques are urgently needed for solving parametric partial differential equations. Examples of dimension reduction are POD, RB and PGD among many other techniques. Moreover, when using any kind of reduced modeling, verification is a crucial point because we are introducing an inevitable error whose quantification is extremely important in engineering design.
In the session, the most recent advances attained by the former techniques will be pointed out and new incipient alternatives explored.

ROM workshop in Cachan (November 4-6, 2015)

Dear colleagues,

After the editions of Cachan in 2011 and Blois in 2013, we are preparing the third workshop “Reduced-Basis, POD and PGD Model Reduction Techniques”. This workshop, organized jointly by the École Normale Supérieure de Cachan and École Centrale de Nantes, will be held on the campus of ENS Cachan from 4 to 6 November 2015. Participants will attend a unique plenary session (there will be no sessions in parallel) with contributors from the fields of mechanics, applied mathematics and engineering.

The details of the organization and the information for the participation, are available on the website (http://rom2015.sciencesconf.org). The program will consist of several keynotes and presentations on several technical issues, some of which have already been announced on the site. Contributions are accepted until July 15, 2015.

Hoping to have the pleasure to meet you in Cachan,

Pierre Ladevèze and Francisco (Paco) Chinesta

Exploratory Workshop on Applications of Model Order Reduction Methods in Industrial Research and Development

As part of the activities of the COST Action EU-MORNET, the Working Group 3 (Applications) holds an Exploratory Workshop on Applications of Model Order Reduction Methods in Industrial Research and Development, taking place on 6 November 2015 at the Chambre de Commerce in Luxembourg.

Meeting Objectives: This 1-day workshop presents a unique opportunity to connect European academic research and industrial development in the area of Model Order Reduction. The meeting aims at

  • discussing the current state-of-the-art from the academic and application-driven perspective,
  • demonstrating best-practice examples from industry,
  • identifying existing challenges in the application of MOR,
  • collecting benchmark problems from a variety of different challenging application domains, and
  • fostering the continuing bi-directional exchange between industry and academia.

Berlin Workshop on Model Order Reduction of Transport-dominated Phenomena

Compact computational representations (a.k.a. “Reduced Models”) of phenomena that involve significant transport, convection, or propagation delays can create vexing tradeoffs for modelers that often defy an acceptable balance between fidelity and complexity. Nonlinearity is often present as a significantly complicating feature in such models, but even for simple cases, linear convective effects can make it difficult to arrive at efficient models having adequate accuracy.

Approaching these issues and as part of a new project sponsored by the Einstein Foundation and TU-Berlin, an opening workshop entitled “Model Reduction of Transport-dominated Phenomena” will be held May 19-20, 2015 at the Berlin-Brandenburg Academy of Sciences and Humanities in Berlin.

Perspectives offered by an international group of experts from a range of disciplines that include systems modeling, hydrodynamics, computational control, and model reduction, will offer the opportunity for an exchange of information, accumulated intuition, and experience in the development of effective, compact models for transport/convection/delay-dominated phenomena.

There is no registration fee required for participation, however space is limited and advance registration will be necessary in order to attend.

Speakers will include:
Alessandro Astolfi (London)
Peter Benner (Magdeburg)
Peter Breedveld (Twente)
Mark Embree (Blacksburg)
Martin Grepl (Aachen)
Serkan Gugercin (Blacksburg)
Jan Heiland (Magdeburg)
Matthias Heinkenschloss (Houston)
Michael Hinze (Hamburg)
Birgit Jacob (Wuppertal)
Alessandro Macchelli (Bologna)
Bernhard Maschke (Lyon)
Bernd Noack (Poitiers)
Joost Rommes (Grenoble)
