Particle Simulations on GPUs
Nicolin Govender (firstname.lastname@example.org, University of Surrey, Guildford, United Kingdom and Research Center Pharmaceutical Engineering Graz, Austria), Daniel Wilke (University of Pretoria, South Africa), Charley Wu (University of Surrey, Guildford, United Kingdom).
In this mini-symposium we will explore the impact of the GPU in engineering simulations and glimpse into the future of simulations and computational engineering. Industrial-scale simulations using particle-based methods, such as the discrete element method, remain a big challenge, but the GPU architecture is changing that perception fast, as demonstrated by the recent advancement of the open-source framework Blaze-DEM. However, engineering simulation is still characterized by either the analyze-wait-modify-analyze cycle or more recently the batch analyze-wait-modify-batch analyze cycle. The GPU is enabling a new paradigm denoted to interactive simulation and design (ISD), allowing engineers to simulate process changes before being actually implemented.
While this mini-symposium is primarily focused on the algorithms and computational implementation of particle based methods using DEM, SPH, LBM on the GPU, applications of these methods in science and engineering will also be explored.
Computers and ICT in Mathematics Education
Gabriel Aguilera-Venegas, (email@example.com, Universidad de Málaga, Spain), José Luis Galán-García (firstname.lastname@example.org, Universidad de Málaga, Spain), Eugenio Roanes-Lozano (email@example.com, Universidad Complutense de Madrid, Spain), Pavel Solin (firstname.lastname@example.org, University of Nevada, Reno, USA)
The increasing use of computers and ICT (Information and Communication Technologies) in every kind of activity (industrial, academic, social, ...), is nowadays a fact that must be addressed. Specifically in Education, the computer and ICT are being used from different point of views in order to develop different Education strategies and techniques (programming, e-learning, blended learning, open and distance learning, learner-centered environments, …). It is very important to know the new trends in the use of Computer and ICT in Education since it is a field in constant evolution. In this minisymposium, proposals dealing with the use of Computers and ICT in Mathematics Education are welcome. The minisymposium will promote the outreach of new experiences, application of new educational models and techniques in Mathematics Education in which the use of computers and ICT have an key role.
Papers from talks presented at this minisymposium can be submitted to a special issue of The International Journal for Technology in Mathematics Education (IJTME, ISSN: 1744- 2710). IJTME is indexed in SCOPUS and ESCI (Emerging Sources Citation Index of The Web of Science), among other databases.
Smart Applications of Scientific Computing
Gabriel Aguilera-Venegas, (email@example.com, Universidad de Málaga, Spain), José Luis Galán-García (firstname.lastname@example.org, Universidad de Málaga, Spain), Antonio Hernando (email@example.com, Universidad Politécnica de Madrid, Spain), Eugenio Roanes-Lozano (firstname.lastname@example.org, Universidad Complutense de Madrid, Spain)
Nowadays there is a wide variety of mathematical software available: computer algebra systems, technical computing languages, automated deduction systems, ... This minisymposium is devoted to practical real-world applications of this software in fields like: transportation engineering, electrical engineering, medicine, knowledge based systems, smart cities, accelerated time simulations, models of queuing systems, ... (this is not an exhaustive list). The focus will be on advanced and smart applications with a nontrivial mathematical background.
