Multiscale or multi-physics modelling play a major role in the modelling of many important problems arising in the geosciences, atmospheric sciences, physical sciences, chemistry, biology and medicine. The past few years has seen new mathematical and computational frameworks emerging to address the challenge of multiscale computation. However, many major problems need still to be addressed and we will focus in this workshop on the issues of adaptivity, robustness and complexity in multiscale modeling and computation.
The purpose of the meeting is to bring together experts (both international leaders and promising young researchers) from several mathematical communities (a posteriori analysis, computational methods for stochastic and multiscale problems, homogenization) and provide an unique opportunity for exchange of ideas, presentation and dissemination of new results likely to contribute to a better understanding of the aforementioned challenging issues.
Numbers will be limited and participation is by invitation only.

Participation
Participation is by invitation only. The workshop will begin on Monday 30 March and finish on Friday 3 April 2009.
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. If you do require a visa, ICMS can provide a signed invitation letter.
Venue
The workshop will take place at the head-quarters of ICMS, 14 India Street, Edinburgh. This house is the birthplace of James Clerk Maxwell and is situated in the historic New Town of Edinburgh, near the city centre.
The ICMS travel pages contain advice on how to travel to Edinburgh. For local information the finding ICMS page shows the location of ICMS and contains useful maps of the city centre.
The seminar room at ICMS has 4 whiteboards, 2 overhead projectors, a data projector and laptop. If you are giving a talk we ask that you use our ICMS laptop and bring your talk on a memory stick or CD. If you wish your talk to be pre-loaded onto our laptop, you may email it in advance to Johanna Kytöharju .
Wireless access is available throughout the ICMS building. There are also 4 public PCs which may be used at any time for internet access and to check email.
Accommodation
ICMS will arrange single en-suite rooms in local guest houses for those who require it. Accommodation is typically about 15 to 30 minutes walk from ICMS. Participants are also free to make their own arrangements and may claim back the cost, with receipts, up to a maximum of £65.00 a night for up to 6 nights. A list of Edinburgh accommodation of various sorts and prices is available here . Sections 1-3 are particularly relevant.
Meals and Refreshments
There will be an informal wine reception after the close of lectures on Monday 30 March.
Morning and afternoon refreshments will be provided on each day of the workshop.
Buffet lunches will be provided on only Monday 30 March, Wednesday 1 April and Friday 3 April at no cost to participants. For the remainder of the days, participants are free to go out for lunch and explore the many cafés, sandwich shops, restaurants and bars nearby. On arrival we will provide you with a ‘welcome’ pack which will contain information about eating places nearby.
On Tuesday 31 March a mezze style evening meal will be provided in Nargile Turkish Restaurant, 73 Hanover Street, at 19.00. The workshop dinner will take place at 19.00 at The Magnum Restaurant, 1 Albany Street, on the evening of Thursday 2 April. The workshop grant will cover the cost of these meals.
Registration
Registration will take place on Monday 30 March from 9.00 to 10.30 at ICMS.
Financial Arrangements
Unless otherwise specified in your invitation letter, the workshop grant will cover the cost of your bed and breakfast accommodation, tea/coffee throughout the workshop, lunch on Monday, Wednesday and Friday only, the wine reception, the informal supper on Tuesday and the Workshop Dinner on Thursday evening.
If we have agreed to pay some of your travel costs, you will be informed by email. Reimbursement will take place after the workshop. At Registration you will be given an expenses claim form and this should be submitted to ICMS, with receipts and bank details. Please note that we cannot reimburse any item without a receipt.
