Keynote speakers

Prof. Matthew R. Bate: Matthew Bate is Professor of Theoretical Astrophysics in the School of Physics at the University of Exeter (UK). He is one of the world leading experts on the application of the SPH method to the study of the process of star formation. His simulations involve performing self-gravitating fluid dynamical simulations, some of which also include radiation transport and magnetic fields. Many of the simulations require months and years of computer time and must be performed on some of the world’s most powerful supercomputers.

Prof. Rouhollah Fatehi: Rouhollah Fatehi is Associate Professor of Mechanical Engineering at the School of Engineering at the Persian Gulf University (Iran). He is a world-class expert on the development and applications of the SPH method. Some of the topics he has been working on in recent years include the interaction between solids and fluids, weakly compressible/incompressible SPH, or the evolution of magnetized solids in SPH.

The programme will be announced in the forthcoming weeks
