Maison de la Simulation at CEA/CNRS, Paris, France, will organize ASTRONUM-2012 – the 7th Annual International Conference on Numerical Modeling of Space Plasma Flows at Sheraton Keauhou Hotel on the Big Island, Hawaii, 25–29 June, 2012. (24-June Evening Welcome Reception and Registration).

The conference will cover the following topics:

(1) Software packages for modeling and analyzing plasma flows

(2) Advanced numerical methods for space, astrophysical and geophysical flows;

(3) Large-scale fluid-based, kinetic, and hybrid simulations;

(4) Turbulence and cosmic ray transport;

(5) Magnetohydrodynamics with the application to:

(1) Physics of the Sun-Heliosphere-Magnetosphere;
(2) Interstellar medium and star formation;
(3) Cosmology and galaxy formation;
(4) Dynamo effect;
(5) Stellar Physics.

The purpose of the conference is to bring together leading experts in applied mathematics, space physics, astrophysics, and geophysics in order to discuss the application of novel numerical algorithms to computationally challenging problems. The conference will be structured around invited, 40-minute keynote and 25-minute regular talks, and a limited number of contributed talks, with no parallel sessions.

E-mail inquiries about the meeting should be directed to Nikolai.Pogorelov@uah.edu and Edouard.Audit@cea.fr.
