TiciNUM 2019

Third Young Numerical Analysts Meeting in Lombardy - Pavia, May 10, 2019

We are pleased to announce the third edition of the Young Numerical Analysts Meeting in Lombardy (formerly known as MediolaNUM). This year the workshop moves to Pavia, and is therefore called TiciNUM. The previous editions were held in Università di Milano – Bicocca (2018) and Università Statale di Milano (2017).

The meeting aims at building connections and sharing knowledge among the young researchers in Lombardy working in the fields of numerical analysis and scientific computing.

The meeting will take place in the afternoon of May 10th 2019 in the campus of the Università di Pavia (Corso Strada Nuova 65, room Foscolo). Participation is free, but we kindly ask you to send us an email at ticinum2019@imati.cnr.it if you are planning to attend.
