CentraleSupélec will be the host of nwt8 from 15 to 19 November 2021. The ESRs will learn about the modelling and simulation of contact-friction interactions in assemblies of rods / beams. The training consists of courses, practical work and a round-table discussion about the challenges in the choice of models for frictional contact interactions, and it will be supported by THREAD's partner organisation INRIA.
Next year, from 28 February to 4 March, the next Manifolds and Geometric Integration Colloquia (MaGIC) will take place in Ilsetra, Norway. Hopefully this time more ESRs will be able to take part in person and enjoy, in addition to the interesting presentations, the Norwegian winter. For impressions about this year's MaGIC, check out our news posts here and here.
External participants are also welcome to participate. Please contact the local organisers for registration.
