ESSAM schools

EMS summer schools in applied mathematics (ESSAM) is a series of summer schools organized yearly under the European Mathematical Society banner.

ESSAM Kácov school

ESSAM Kácov school includes two biennial international schools, one with the focus on mathematical modelling, numerical analysis, and scientific computing (MASC), and the another focusing on mathematical fluid mechanics (MAFF), taking place at Kácov (Czech Republic) in alternating years.


Mathematical Modelling, Numerical Analysis and Scientific Computing

  • Period: every two years, organized in even-numbered years, starting from 2016
  • Next school: May 27 - June 1, 2018; number of participants 40-60
  • Last school: May 29 - June 3, 2016
  • Description: Usually four main speakers deliver a series of three or four lectures. The aim of the school is to promote the interconnection of mathematical modeling, analysis, and computational methods used in solving complex (real-world) problems. The lectures will be prepared with a broad multidisciplinary audience in mind, and at each school a broad scope, ranging from modeling to scientific computing, will be covered. Ample time within the school is allocated for the promotion of informal scientific discussions among the participants.
  • Scientific Committee:
    • Peter Bastian (University of Heidelberg)
    • Radim Blaheta (Institute of Geonics, Academy of Sciences, Ostrava)
    • Josef Málek (Charles University in Prague)

  • Technical support:
    • Hana Bílková
    • Martina Kratochvílová
    • Jana Pešková
    • Oldřich Ulrych
  • History: The school stems from the annually organized (since 2005) winter schools and seminars on numerical analysis. The webpages of the previous winter schools: 2015, 2014, 2013, 2012, 2011, 2010, 2009, 2007, 2006, 2005.
