Lord, Gabriel Heriot-Watt University

This is the second meeting of the network Porous Media-Processes and Mathematics.

We are a UK-wide research network focussed on all aspects of porous media flow at the interface between engineering, applied mathematics, applied probability and scientific computing.

Our objectives:

  • Provide UK researchers, from both academia and industry, with a platform for novel scientific interactions.

  • Create a flexible and active UK research community that can respond to large-scale societal and environmental challenges (e.g., Gulf of Mexico oil spill, Fukushima nuclear disaster, induced seismicity during geothermal exploration and shale gas drilling) and specific international calls.


The network is supported by the Engineering and Physical Science Research Council (EPSRC)

Further information about the network can be found here http://www.pmpm.org.uk/

Assyr Abdulle, École Polytechnique Fédéral de Lausanne
Florian Doster, Princeton University/Heriot-Watt University

Arrangements

Please note that the meeting will begin with registration from 09.00-09.30 on Wednesday 8 January  and will close at 14.45 on Friday 10 January.   Please take these timings into account when booking your travel. 

 

Participation
THE APPLICATION PERIOD FOR THIS WORKSHOP IS NOW CLOSED.  

 

Venue: 15 South College Street, Edinburgh
The meeting will be held at ICMS, 15 South College Street, Edinburgh, EH8 9AA. Follow this link for information on the location of 15 South College Street. Invited speakers can either bring talks on a memory/usb stick or laptop.

 

Travel
Information about travel to the UK and Edinburgh is available here.  Please note that it is your responsibility to have adequate travel insurance to cover medical and other emergencies that may occur on your trip.

A taxi directly from the airport will cost approximately 15.00 to 20.00 GBP to the city centre for a one-way journey.     There is also a bus service direct from the airport to the city centre which will cost 3.50 single or 6.00 GBP return - the Airlink 100.  This is a frequent service (every 10 minutes during peak times) and will bring you close to Waverley Railway Station and the workshop venue. 

Lothian buses charge £1.50 for a single, £3.50 for a day ticket. Please note that the exact fare is required and no change is given.

If travelling by train, please note that Edinburgh has two railway stations; Waverley Railway Station being the main station and closest to the workshop venue at 15 South College Street. If you alight at Edinburgh Waverley, the workshop venue is an easy 10 minute walk over North and South Bridge. The second railway station is called Haymarket and is at the West End of the city centre.

 

UK Visas
If you are travelling from overseas you may require an entry visa. A European visa does not guarantee entry to the UK. Please use this link to the UK Visas site to find out if you need a visa and if so how to apply for one.

 

Accommodation
Participants are asked to make their own accommodation arrangements. A list of Edinburgh accommodation of various sorts and prices is available here
Invited Speakers will be contacted separately by email regarding accommodation - ICMS will book hotel accommodation for Invited Speakers and will email full details of the booking.

 

Registration Fee and Financial Matters
In a change to previously published information, there is now NO registration fee for this meeting. 

Some financial assistance is available to assist with participation in the event for UK applicants who are network members. We anticipate being able to cover reasonable travel and accommodation costs (up to three nights). Applicants should provide details of amounts required in the relevant section of the application form.

 

Poster Session and Informal Wine Reception
There will be a Poster Session for Graduate Students, 17.30-18.30 on Thursday 9 January, during which some wine will be served.  Prior to the Poster Session, Participants will be allocated a short amount of time in the Lecture Theatre to show three slides (maximum) to advertise their Poster.  Please bring your slides to Registration as a pdf file to be pre-loaded onto the ICMS computer in advance of the Advert Session. For further information about the Poster Session please click here

 

Network Membership
If you wish to join the network please tick the relevant box on the application form. As a member of the network you will be able to apply to host visitors, organize hot topic meetings etc, as part of the network as well as receive updates by email.  Please see  http://www.pmpm.org.uk/ for details.

 

Meals and Refreshments
Refreshments will be provided during the breaks in the programme and a light buffet lunch provided.   An informal wine reception will take place during the Poster Session at ICMS on Thursday 9 January.  A Conference Dinner will be held at 19.00 on Thursday 9 January at The Magnum Restaurant, 1 Albany Street, Edinburgh.
