PMPM Research Network

 08 - 10 Jan 2014
 ICMS, 15 South College Street Edinburgh

Scientific Organisers:

  • Sebastian Geiger, Heriot-Watt University

  • Gabriel Lord, Heriot-Watt University

This was the second meeting of the network Porous Media-Processes and Mathematics. This is a UK-wide research network focused on all aspects of porous media flow at the interface between engineering, applied mathematics, applied probability and scientific computing. Further information about the network can be found here.

Our objectives were to provide UK researchers with a platform for novel scientific interactions. Moreover, this workshop aimed to create a flexible and active UK research community that can respond to large-scale societal and environmental challenges and specific international calls.
