2nd IMPA-InterPore Conference on Porous Media Conservation Laws, Numerics and Applications

IMPA, Rio de Janeiro, October 16 – 19, 2016  


 The Conference is focused on mathematical modeling and computational problems of porous media such as fluid and heat transport, reaction and phase transition phenomena, geomechanics, etc. It is aimed as a forum for sharing ideas among researches working on mathematical, physical, chemical and engineering aspects of porous media.
