Centre d'Eté Mathématique de Recherche Avancée en Calcul Scientifique
CEMRACS runs as a summer-long session in "Advanced research in scientific calculation". Created in 1996 by Yvon Maday and Frédéric Coquel, it plays a vital part in knowledge transfer between academic and industrial mathematics.
New CEMRACS groups meet every summer at Cirm during six weeks and focus on a different theme linked to scientific calculation. The format of this summer school is usually the following:
- a first week dedicated to lectures to find out about the state-of-the-art in that particular topic and to learn about its latest developments.
- five weeks focusing in small groups on projects that can be academically or industrially based.
Industry provides some specific modeling or numerical simulation problems and small groups of young researchers try to find a suitable answer, with the help of established researchers in the field.
Coupling a mathematical approach to tackle these problems with a non mathematical approach often leads to interesting advances that businesses can exploit later on. Among the companies that have sponsored some of the projects, we can name L'Oréal, ANDRA, CEA, the Institut Français du Pétrole, Bosch, etc.
CEMRACS is pre-organized and studied by SMAI before it is presented to the International Scientific Committee at Cirm. As for all long programmes at Cirm (e.g. the Jean-Morlet Chair and the Thematic Month), we ask the organizers of future CEMRACS session to present their proposal in person or via video conferencing. Note that the presentation should be prepared in English.
