Minisymposia Details

Organized by Michele Botti and Lorenzo Mascotto
Galerkin methods based on polytopal meshes are an established technology in the framework of PDEs discretisation as they allow for: a natural design of structure preserving schemes; more efficient mesh refinements/coarsenings (due to the automatic use of hanging nodes); the computation of solutions, which are robust with respect to mesh distortions; geometries featuring highly heterogeneous micro-structures and inner interfaces. In this mini-symposium, we gather researchers working with diff erent polytopal methods (discontinuous Galerkin, hybrid high-order, virtual elements, hybridizable discontinuous Galerkin, ...).

Virtual Element Methods For Large-Scale Simulations Incomplex Geometries: Polytopal Mesh Adaptivity ABSTRACT
Organized by Enrique Otárola and Abner Salgado
Models with singular data are widely used to describe complex physical phenomena happening, for instance, at lower dimensional scales, such as immersed interfaces or fibers, fluid-structure interaction problems, dislocations phenomena, as well as doping or defects in electronic devices. In all these examples, the recurring feature is that the solution is not smooth, and so the standard arguments invoked to obtain stability and convergence of numerical algorithms must be modified.
The focus of this mini symposium is to gather researchers working with such problems. The discussion will focus on the PDE theory and rigorous approximation techniques of problems with singular data.

The numerical approximation of systems of PDEs is highly challenging because of the multiscale properties of the physical phenomena involved. In recent years, several researchers have been working on the development of innovative numerical technologies for the spatial discretization of PDEs, such as isogeometric analysis and polytopal element methods. At the end of the discretization process, all these methods yield the solution of large scale and ill conditioned systems, which require the development of effective solvers. The aim of this minisymposium is to bring together researchers working on the construction, analysis and implementation of robust parallel and multilevel solvers for the solution of the linear systems arising from innovative discretizations of PDEs.

In recent years, PDE based computer models have become a very accurate and powerful tool for simulating cardiovascular function. Personalization of these models leads to the development of digital twins that can contribute in therapy planning, and the improvement of interventional outcomes. Due to the complex multiphysics and multiscale nature of cardiovascular function, coupled mathematical models from cellular to tissue and organ levels have emerged. Efficient and reliable methods to solve the underlying PDEs, and pipelines to personalize the models in a reasonable timeframe are needed to pave the way towards clinical application.

The modelling of transportation phenomena makes a large use of fully nonlinear PDEs, typically hyperbolic or hyperbolic dominant. The little degree of regularity of such equations, as in the case of Conservation Laws (CL), Hamilton-Jacobi equations (HJ), etc. requires to weakening the concept of solutions with, consequently, a special care in the numerical treatment. Starting from the nowadays classical concepts of entropy or viscosity solutions, the field has experienced a consistent expansion in the last decade. The goal of this minisymposium is to gather various international experts of the field to present new developments.

The minisymposium is focused on models of unit operations arising in mineral processing, wastewater treatment, and similar areas that are described by nonlinear, time-dependent PDEs of convection-diffusion-reaction and related types. Typical applications of this type include column flotation,clarifier-thickeners, sequencing batch reactors, and granular media. These models are motivated by specific real-world applications but pose a number of mathematical challenges for efficient numerical simulation, control, and optimization. These include discontinuous solutions, discontinuous fluxes, degenerate diffusion terms, reaction terms, moving boundaries, and partly nonlocal and delay terms. Recent advances in these areas will be discussed.

The numerical solution of flows of non-Newtonian fluids is a challenging subject because of the complexities that the non-linearities of the rheological models bring into the problem. Similarly, coupling the motion of a fluid with that of particles within the flow also poses several problems for numerical methods. In this mini-symposium, we aim to investigate recent advances in the numerical solution of flows of non-Newtonian and/or particulate flows (eg. granular materials, fluidised beds, flows in porous media, sediment transport, geophysical flows, avalanches, magnetic fluids, Bingham fluids, elastic fluids, emulsions, amongst others) and of the new physics and understanding of flows of these materials that is unveiled by recent numerical methods.

The objective of the minisymposium is to take a snapshot of the current state of the art on structure preserving techniques for nonlinear conservation equations. Structure preserving techniques bring robustness to numerical methods by (i) Preserving physically relevant convex sets that are invariant by the mathematical model (positivity of density, positivity of an internal energy, etc); (ii) Guaranteeing that involution properties of the the mathematical model are satisfied by the numerical solution (for instance Gauss' law in electromagnetism); (iii) Enforcing compatibility with important asymptotic limits (for instance, the diffusion limit in radiation transport); (iv) Enforcing well-balancing with respect to important steady state solutions.

Organized by Luca Formaggia, Alessio Fumagalli and Miroslav Kuchta
A large variety of phenomena of practical interest occurs in domains characterized by the simultaneous presence of thin tubular structures embedded in a larger domain. From a computational standpoint, it might be convenient to collapse the thin structures along their centerlines, operating a dimensional reduction of these domains and of the relative equations, and thus avoiding the necessity of resolving, with the mesh, the small cross-section scale. But the resulting 3D-1D coupled problems need to be carefully addressed, to derive well posed mathematical formulations and tailored numerical schemes capable of reproducing the expected behavior of the solution.

Practical Information

Arriving in Chile

International flights arrive at the International Terminal (Terminal 2) of the airport Arturo Merino Benítez (IATA code: SCL) in Santiago: https://www.nuevopudahuel.cl/

Passengers arriving from abroad are requested to pick up their baggage upon arrival at Santiago, pass through the customs and SAG (Agricultural and Livestock Service) inspection and proceed to the National Terminal (Terminal 1) for connecting flights to Concepción. Passengers must check in again their baggage for the connecting flight in the check-in area (located on the third floor of Terminal 1). Under no circumstance can baggage be checked through directly to Concepción from abroad. The airport in Concepción, Carriel Sur (IATA code: CCP), is located 5 kilometers to the Northwest of the city.

From the airport to downtown Concepción

  • Shuttles (shared vans for 6 people). Fare: about 8000 CLP (Chilean pesos) per person.
  • Taxis to downtown. Fare: about 12000 CLP (Chilean pesos).

Fares must be paid to the agents located at the baggage claim area.


In Chile the electrical current used is 220 volts, 50 Hertz.


January is in the middle of summer with sunny days and warm weather.
Average maximum temperature : 25 ºC
Average minimum temperature : 10 ºC




Shopping areas in downtown Concepción are open from 10:00 am to 8:00 pm. The most accepted credit cards are Visa and Master Card. Some stores accept also Diners and American Express.

Exchange Rate

Chile's official currency is Peso ($). 1 US$ (dollar) is roughly equivalent to $820 (the exchange rate fluctuates). Foreign currencies can be exchanged at banks or currency exchange bureaus, most of them located in downtown Concepción.
It might be a good idea to get some Chilean pesos (to pay taxi fare) at the Arturo Merino Benítez airport in Santiago since there are not exchange bureaus at the Carriel Sur airport in Concepción.


There are several banks downtown. On the University campus campus there is a branch of Itaú bank located below the clock tower. Here you can find an ATM.
