20th UIT Summer School. Multiscale modelling in thermal fluid dynamics: theory and applications

In the dynamic landscape of engineering and scientific research, multiscale modelling has emerged as an indispensable tool for mastering thermal and fluid dynamics phenomena across varying length and time scales. The 20th UIT Summer School aims at providing engineers, PhD students and post-doc researchers with the most effective tools to address multiscale modelling in thermal fluid dynamics. The initiative aims to demystify multiscale techniques for those unfamiliar, recognizing untapped potential in various fields. Encompassing micro to macro scales, the program covers topics such as microstructure thermodynamics, transport phenomena in advanced materials, and applications of nanofluids. Lectures provide insights into practical applications and theoretical foundations, fostering a deeper understanding of heat and mass transfer across scales. Essential mathematical concepts like model reduction, coarse-graining, and machine learning techniques are also covered. By combining theory and hands-on experience, the Summer School seeks to equip participants with the skills necessary to navigate the intricate landscape of multiscale modelling, offering a unique opportunity for growth and discovery in engineering.

The registration fee is € 800,00 and includes attendance to the Summer School, coffee breaks during the lessons, and full board treatment in a double room from the dinner of Sunday, 1 September to the lunch of Saturday, 7 September. For single room accommodation a € 120 supplement will be required. Each participant is kindly asked to confirm at the reception his/her presence at the lunch of Saturday, 7. The 50% of registration fee (€ 400,00) must be paid before 19 July 2024, following the instructions given within the registration form. The remaining 50% (€ 400,00) plus the single room supplement (€ 120,00), if requested, must be paid directly during the check-in at Certosa di Pontignano. Please, to apply download (here) and complete (in PDF or RTF format) the registration form, and kindly send it by e-mail, before 19 July 2024, to: or
