This workshop on Numerical Methods for interactions between sediments and water is organized in the framework of Euro-Mediterranean Inria Cooperation Project MHyCoF. The workshop is aimed at Msc students, PhD students, recent PhD doctorates, and researchers in general willing to update their knowledge with recent developments on numerical techniques that play an important role in the international scene. As coupled hydrodynamics, sediments and morphodynamics equations appears in the mathematical modeling of many physical phenomena in hydarulics and coastal engineering, researchers coming from different fields (mathematics, physics, engineering, geology, etc) can be interested.

The first goal of this workshop is to bring together experts from related fields for exchange of innovative ideas and to help finding unified numerical tools and techniques for solving coupled hydrodynamics and morphodynamics. The second, equally important goal is to give younger researchers (including at the doctoral and postdoctoral level from different mathematical and engineering departments) the opportunity to expand their knowledge in numerical methods for coupled hydrodynamics and morphodynamics and to work and discuss with renowned experts.Topics for talks and discussions will be aimed at:

To encourage the active participation of attendees, especially from young researchers, there will be sessions for short talks and posters. Participants interested in contributing to the workshop program with a short talk or a poster, are requested to fill the title of their contributions in the online registration form.
