You are cordially invited to the 9th International Smoothed Particle Hydrodynamics European Research Interest Community (SPHERIC) Workshop at the Conservatoire National des Arts et Métiers in Paris, from June the 2nd to June the 5th 2014.

The SPHERIC workshops are the only worldwide events which exclusively focus on the Smoothed Particle Hydrodynamics (SPH) methodology and related simulation approaches. SPH has recently gained enhanced attention in the area of scientific computing. Exemplary applications refer to the development of galaxies in astrophysics, environmental engineering, applied solid mechanics, marine and coastal engineering, nuclear power engineering, medical engineering or geotechnical problems.

The successful concept of SPHERIC is due to a methodological focus in an interdisciplinary application environment, integrating the know-how of physicists, mathematicians, IT experts and engineers from academia and industry. On behalf of the organizing team, it is a pleasure and honor to us to invite scientists to the 9th International SPHERIC Workshop at Conservatoire National des Arts et Métiers (CNAM), in Paris, France. The Workshop is jointly organized by CNAM, EDF (Electricité de France) and LHSV (Saint-Venant Laboratory for Hydraulics, University of Paris-Est).

We are looking forward to welcoming you in Paris, and sharing a successful and enjoyable meeting with you.
