Subject: Conference On Computational Physics

September 2-5 1998, GRANADA (Spain)

The methods developed to deal with the computational aspects of
physical problems areuseful in an increasing number of situations,
from chemistry and geology to engineering and communications.
Computational Physics has thus evolved into a trans-disciplinary
field now concerned with the creative use of computers in all fields
of scientific research. This is partly because Computational Physics
is very well suited to study cooperativity. Cooperative and collective
phenomena, a main concern of Statistical Physics, occur and often
determine the emergent, observable behavior at the interfaces between
physics and biology, economy, sociology, environmental sciences, etc.
The CCP 1998 is planned to focus at this interface, so that contacts
and the exchange of ideas and methods between these different fields
of science are favoured. With this aim, abstract submissions are
strongly encouraged not only from these interfaces but from all
areas of Computational Physics, and the final programme is expected to
consist of invited lectures and other contributions on :

Computer-aided Simulation and Modelling
Novel Monte Carlo Methods, Novel Methods in Fluid Dynamics,
Quantum Computing Methods, High Performance Visualization,
Large Scale Computing Systems, Symbolic Modelling, ...

And their Applications to
Condensed Matter and Materials Science, Statistical
Physics, Nonlinear and Adaptive Systems, Astronomy and
Cosmology, High Energy Physics and Accelerators, Nuclear
and Plasma Physics, Atomic, Molecular and Optical Physics,
Environmental and Geological Phenomena, Pattern
Recognition and Classification, Artificial Intelligence
and Neural nets, Industry such as Modeling Industrial
Devices, Materials and Processes, ...

Subject: Lecturship at University of Sao Paulo


The Computer Sciences Department in University of Sao Paulo - Campus
Sao Carlos is seeking candidates for a permanent lectureship to support
research and teaching in the area of CFD. The candidates are not supposed
to be able to teach in portuguese immediately but need to be willing to
do so in about one year. The teaching is mainly concerned with teaching
undergraduate level Numerical analysis subjects for Mathematicians and
Enginners and also graduate level courses in our graduate programme
(8hours/week in total). The research activities involve assistance with
the development of a 3D code for simulation of free surface flows. A good
background in the discretization of PDE's via finite differences or finite
volumes is necessary, though a knowledge of CFD, C programming, parallel
programming, and/or geometric modeling is an advantage but not mandatory.
