The Sixth International Workshop on Unstructured Mesh Numerical Modelling of Coastal, Shelf & Ocean Flows
19-21 September 2007
Abstract and registration deadline: 7 July
The schedule and abstracts are now available for download
About the Workshop
The unstructured workshop presents an annual opportunity for the developers and users of unstructured mesh models of environmental flows to exchange results and views related to all aspects of this field.
Workshop is characterised by an informal and interactive style and by the high quality of the presentations and discussions at the bleeding edge of model development.
Due to the increasing interest in the workshop over the years, this year's workshop will be expanded from the previous 2.5 day format to cover 3 full days.
The workshop will be held in the Royal School of Mines on the South Kensington Campus of Imperial College London. The campus is located in the centre of London surrounded by some of London's most famous museums and across the road from the Royal Albert Hall. You can see the conference location on Google maps
Accessing the workshop rooms
The main workshop room is G41 in the Royal School of Mines building which is building 10 on the campus map. Unfortunately, renovation work on the entrance hall to the building has overrun and access is only possible via an alternative route. You will need to enter campus by the main entrance on Exhibition road. Proceed through this building to the courtyard beyond and enter via the Bessemer building (building 12 on the map). The Bessemer building is instantly recognisable by the very large, very pink glass canopy over its entrance. Once inside the Bessemer building, the way to the workshop will be signposted.
Workshop network facilities
Guest accounts for the Imperial College IT system will be available at the conference. These accounts can be used to access the campus wireless network. We will also be providing a number of wired network connections in the room next to the main workshop room.
Call for presentations
Abstracts are invited for talks or posters covering any aspect of the use of unstructured mesh methods in this field including, but not limited to:
In common with previous workshops, the programme will also feature a number of invited talks and discussion sessions on the current issues facing the field.
Submission of abstracts
Abstracts should be emailed in plain text or LaTeX to David.Ham@imperial.ac.uk by 7 July.
There will be no fee for participation in this year's workshop although we hope that all participants will join us at the workshop dinner and for the post-workshop tour. Please register by sending email to David.Ham@imperial.ac.uk by 7 July. Please also indicate whether you will be joining us for dinner and/or the tour. Payment for dinner and the tour should be made on arrival at the workshop.
We hope that all participants will join us at the workshop dinner on the evening of Thursday 20 September. This is a prime opportunity to meet with other participants in a social setting and is a key part of the workshop programme. The three course dinner, including wine, will be £35. Places at this price are limited so please register soon!
For those who choose to stay in London on Saturday, we are organising an optional amphibious bus tour of central London followed by a trip to the historic centre of Greenwich. The DUKW tour is a unique way to see some of London's major sights from the road and the river while Greenwich is the site of the National Maritime Museum and the Royal Observatory, home of the Prime Meridian of Longitude. The full cost of the tour will be £25. A reduced rate of £20 applies to those who will use their own Oyster cards or zone 1-2 London travel passes.
Local organising committee
The organisers may be contacted via David by email or by telephone on +44 (0) 20 7594 9319.
Professor Christopher Pain of Imperial College London will chair an international panel composed of prominent members of the unstructured mesh ocean modelling community who will oversee the scientific content and programme.
The South Kensington Campus has a direct London Underground connection with Heathrow Airport and has excellent rail and underground connections with London's other airports and the Eurostar terminal at Waterloo Station.
Accommodation is available at Imperial's flagship 3* hall of residence across the road from the workshop location. A single ensuite room including breakfast is just £65 per night and as an added bonus, the College bars are conveniently located in an adjacent building. The College website has information about Beit Hall and a booking form.
There is also a wide range of hotel accommodation available within walking distance of the campus. We'd recommend looking on expedia.
Expedia hotel instructions
Everything in Kensington - Earl's Court is within a couple of kilometres of Imperial and a lot of the hotels are very close. To help you work out how close the hotels are to Imperial, there is a map which shows the workshop location. The Expedia hotel maps actually show the Imperial Campus in darker brown so that might help too.
