Background and scope:
Convection-dominated flows are notoriously difficult to treat numerically. Solutions produced by standard discretization techniques are corrupted by nonphysical oscillations and/or excessive numerical diffusion. The first high-resolution scheme to overcome these shortcomings was the now classical Flux-Corrected-Transport (FCT) algorithm introduced 30 years ago by Boris and Book. Their pioneering idea of blending high- and low-order discretizations has paved the way for the development of a whole range of high-resolution schemes which use flux/slope limiters to prevent the formation of wiggles in the vicinity of shocks and discontinuities while retaining the high accuracy of approximation in regions where the solution is sufficiently smooth. The aim of this 2-day workshop is to provide a forum for discussion of the progress made in the numerical simulation of convection-dominated flows during the three decades elapsed since the birth of FCT.


The Workshop will be held in the Mathe-Tower (indicated by red color on the map) in the lecture hall E29 (ground floor) equipped with an overhead projector, computer, beamer and blackboard. If you need any extra equipment please let us know.

Participants will be charged 40 euro for conference dinner and coffee breaks (5 euro for coffee breaks only). This amount is to be paid in cash at the registration desk located at the entrance of the building.

Scientific Program:
All speakers are allocated 40 minutes for their lectures and additional 10 minutes for questions and discussion. The final time schedule can be downloaded here.

Social Program:
The flavor of Dortmund: excursion, beer test and conference dinner at Hövels brewery.

You will find additional hotels here.

The local organizing committee can be reached by mail or at the Institute of Applied Mathematics located on the fifth floor of the Mathe-Tower.
