4th International Workshop

We welcome your participation in the 4th International Workshop on Model Reduction in Reacting Flows (IWMRRF)

June 19–21, 2013
Marriott Marquis Hotel
San Francisco, California  USA

This biennial workshop brings together international experts on the theory and application of model reduction techniques in reactive flows. The objective of the workshop is to promote discussion and exchange of information among experts in this technical area, thereby promoting the advance of knowledge as regards the development of effective methods for model reduction in reacting flow.
The workshop’s main topics of interest are:

  1. Theoretical foundations of model reduction techniques and related dynamical theory.
  2. Chemical kinetic mechanism simplification.
  3. Model reduction in ODEs, DAEs, and PDEs.
  4. Computational tools to analyze reacting flows databases.

Two-page extended abstracts submissions are due by March 15, 2013.

Scientific committee:

  • Dimitris A. Goussis (National Technical University of Athens, Greece)
  • Ulrich Maas (Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, Germany)
Fabian Mauss (Brandenburg University of Technology, Germany)
  • Habib N. Najm (Sandia National Laboratories, USA)
  • Samuel Paolucci (University of Notre Dame, USA)
  • Stephen B. Pope (Cornell University, USA)
  • Joseph M. Powers (University of Notre Dame, USA)
