Third International Conference on     
Applied Mathematics
for Industrial Flow Problems

AMIF 2002

April  17-20


First Announcement
(soon available)

International Applied Mathematics for Industrial Flow Problems (AMIF) conferences aim at gathering researchers in various branches of Computational Fluid Dynamics and Applied Mathematics around some specific research themes.

AMIF is a five-year programme funded by the European Science Foundation which started in 1997. Its principal goal is to increase understanding of the mathematics underlying models of realistic flows, and to improve methods for their numerical solution.

For more information about the scope of the programme and its internal structure you may refer to its Web page.

AMIF 2002 is the Third Conference of this programme, to be held in Lisbon (Portugal) from 17th to 20th of April 2002. The first conference took place in Spain, at San Feliu de Guixols (Barcelona) on October 1-3, 1998 and the second one was held in Italy, at "Il Ciocco" (Tuscany) on October 12-14, 2000.
