IVth KAUST MaS Workshop on Modelling and Simulation

The workshop provides a forum for researchers to present and discuss recent progress in modelling and simulation research. Topics are

  • Models based on partial differential equations
  • Novel models in biosciences
  • Computational methods in empirical sciences.
  • Numerical methods for partial differential equations
  • Historical and scientific background

Previous KAUST MaS workshops were held in 2017, 2018 and 2019
