This is an announcement for the fourth PMPM Annual meeting and the first annual meeting of the UK chapter of InterPore. This meeting will take place on the 13-15th of January 2016 at the ICMS in Edinburgh.

After four years of successful events, this meeting marks the closing event of the PMPM network. Porous Media - Processes and Mathematics (PMPM, http://www.pmpm.org.uk/) is a UK wide research network (funded by the Engineering and Physical Science Research Council, UK) focused on all aspects of porous media flow at the interface between engineering, applied mathematics and scientific computing.

This year’s meeting will feature a full day of training/workshops, followed by two days of keynote and invited talks from international renowned researchers.

The general themes for the meeting will be:
— Biomedical and environmental applications (Yuhang Chen, Diganta Das)
— Geomechanics (Chris MacMinn)
— Homogenization and multi-scale modelling  (Gabriel Lord, Arthur Moncorge, Markus Schmuck)
— Pore scale modelling and imaging (Vahid Joekar-Niasar, Tannaz Pak)
— Uncertainty quantification (Matteo Icardi, Ahmed Elsheikh)

Scientific organising committee:
Vahid J Niasar, University of Manchester
Arthur Moncorge, TOTAL
Tannaz Pak, Teesside University
Nima Shokri, University of Manchester
Matteo Icardi, Warwick University
Diganta B Das, Loughborough University
Christopher Macminn, Oxford University
Yingfang Zhou, University of Aberdeen 


 

Arrangements

The event will begin with registration around 09.00 on Wednesday 13 January and close late afternoon on Friday 15 January 2016.  

Wednesday 13 January will be a day of short courses prior to two days of presentations on the 14 and 15 January 2016. 

There is no registration fee for this meeting.

 

Participation
The application form has now closed.   If you do wish to attend and have not yet applied, please email  audrey.mccrorie (at) icms.org.uk

 

Venue: 15 South College Street, Edinburgh
The meeting will be held at ICMS, 15 South College Street, Edinburgh, EH8 9AA. Follow this link for information on the location of 15 South College Street. Invited speakers can either bring talks on a memory/usb stick or laptop.  You may find this map useful for the meeting.

 

Talks
Talks will be held in the Newhaven Lecture Theatre.    The Lecture Theatre is equipped with a data projector, computer, visualiser (the new generation of overhead projectors) and two blackboards.  The projector and one board may be used simultaneously.  It is best to bring your presentation on a memory stick to use in our ICMS computer.   Alternatively, it is possible for you to use your own laptop with our data projector, but please be aware that you may have to alter your laptop resolutions/settings. 

 

Travel
Information about travel to the UK and Edinburgh is available here.  Please note that it is your responsibility to have adequate travel insurance to cover medical and other emergencies that may occur on your trip.

A taxi directly from the airport will cost approximately 20.00 GBP to the city centre for a one-way journey.     There is also a bus service direct from the airport to the city centre which will cost 4.50 single or 7.50 GBP return - the Airlink 100.  This is a frequent service (every 10 minutes during peak times) and will bring you close to Waverley Railway Station and the workshop venue. 

Lothian buses charge £1.50 for a single, £4.00 for a day ticket. Please note that the exact fare is required and no change is given.

If travelling by train, please note that Edinburgh has several railway stations; Waverley Railway Station being the main station and closest to the workshop venue at 15 South College Street. If you alight at Edinburgh Waverley, the meeting venue is an easy 10 minute walk over North and South Bridge.  The other railway stations are called Haymarket and Edinburgh Park but note that these stations are at the West End of the city centre.

 

UK Visas
If you are travelling from overseas you may require an entry visa. A European visa does not guarantee entry to the UK. Please use this link to the UK Visas site to find out if you need a visa and if so how to apply for one.

 

Accommodation

  • Invited Speakers and members of the Scientific Committee will have been contacted separately by email regarding accommodation - ICMS has booked hotel accommodation and full details of the booking will now have been emailed to you.  If you have not received this, please email audrey.mccrorie (at) ICMS.org.uk

Further details and many more suggestions for accommodation can be found here 

 

Financial Matters
There is NO registration fee for this meeting. 

Some financial assistance is available to support attendance for UK-based academics, UK-based PDRAs and UK-based PHD students.  We anticipate being able to provide a contribution to help with travel and/or accommodation costs. This would be reimbursed after the event (receipts required).   Applicants should provide details of amounts required in the relevant section of the application form.

 

Poster Session and Informal Wine Reception
There will be a Poster Session for Graduate Students on Thursday 14 January, 17.00-18.30, during which there will be an informal wine reception.  Please follow this link for further information about the Poster Session.

 

Meals and Refreshments
Refreshments will be provided during the breaks in the programme and a light buffet lunch provided.   An informal wine reception will take place during the Poster Session at ICMS.  There will be a Conference Dinner on Thursday 14 January, 19.00, at Howies Restaurant, Waterloo Place, Edinburgh. 

 

Wireless Access
The meeting venue, 15 South College Street, has wireless access throughout. On arrival you will be given instructions and a code for accessing the wireless network.

 

Contacts
All enquiries about arrangements for this meeting should be addressed to audrey.mccrorie at icms.org.uk .
