9 - 13 September 2019
Versione stampabile

The 9th International Conference on Numerical Methods for Multi-Material Fluid Flow (MULTIMAT 2019) will push forward the state-of-the-art in the field of multi-phase and multi-material flow problems. Researchers from academic and/or laboratory institutions will focus their discussions on relevant numerical methods, including the analysis of such methods as well as the modeling of complex multi-material flows, which is essential for the investigation and development of new sources of energy, including inertial confinement fusion.

About Trento and the Dolomites

The historical city of Trento is situated in the autonomous Italian region of Trentino - Alto-Adige, close to the world-famous mountains called Dolomites . Trento is very easy to reach by car or train from Austria (150 km south of Innsbruck) and from Verona (90 km north of Verona). The nearest and most convenient airport is Verona Airport, 15 minutes from the Verona train station. The region around Trento is of extraordinary beauty, with its unique mountains and lakes that offer the participants many exciting outdoor activities like skiing, hiking or climbing.
