The aim of the summer school is to present a comprehensive series of lectures on various aspects of problems related to pressure and its role in mathematical analysis and numerical simulation of various types of flows. It is organized as a multidisciplinary event with topics ranging from theoretical and numerical mathematics up to physics and applications. The emphasize will be on models related to topics originating in environmental, biomedical and industrial applications. The summer course is prepared for graduate students, young scientists, and other interested specialists. Besides of the course lectures, the program will include a one day workshop (on Wednesday, August 31) dedicated to short, more advanced lectures given by attending scientists.


Participants are welcome to submit their papers for the workshop held on Wednesday, August 31. Please email your abstract to; abstract layout is available in the Download section.

We are proud to announce...

a talk by our guest of honor Ernest L. (Fritz) Roetman, Ph. D., Adjunct professor at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, Boeing (rtd). - "An Engineering Mathematician - Life in industry - particularly Boeing"

Support for students and young scientists

Thanks to ERCOFTAC, a limited number of grants will be available for European students and young scientists. Depending on the number of applicants the exact amount of support will be announced after the application deadline. The grant will cover at least the registration fee. Those participants who will benefit from the support will be asked to present a poster showing their own scientific work. A formal application, containing short CV, motivation letter and recommendation letter, should be received by organizers before July 31, 2016.
Important note: Only European citizens or foreigners with permanent residence in Europe are eligible for the support. Formal application including short CV, motivation letter and recommendation letter, should be sent to the organizers via email All applications will be reviewed in the shortest possible time after the deadline of July 31 and the applicants will be informed of the outcome. Please note that the applicants should NOT pay the registration fee until their application is decided upon. In case the application is declined, only Early fee will be charged (and ERCOFTAC members discount still applies).

Summer School Venue

The whole course and workshop will be held at the Institute of Mathematics of the Academy of Sciences of Czech Republic.
