2 Postdoc Molecular Simulation - Ecole des Ponts ParisTech / Inria

The purpose of this post-doc is to perform the mathematical and/or numerical analysis of such models. A wide variety of very challenging problems arise in this context and the precise choice of the objectives of the post-doctorate will depend on the experience and interests of the candidate

Call For Papers - Journal of Computational Science

The Journal of Computational Science special issue on Synergy between Parallel Computing, Optimization and Simulation seeks to provide an opportunity for researchers to present their original contributions on the joint use of advanced single- or multi-objective optimization methods, simulation and/or its data-driven approximation, and distributed and/or parallel multi/many-core computing, and any related issues.

Call for Papers : New methods and epistemologies to explore simulation models

The study of complexity can not be anymore dissociated from intensive computational practices. Modeling and simulation have indeed taken a crucial role in the extraction of knowledge, especially in the study of systems with a high complexity such as socio-technical systems. Quantitative geography is a perfect illustration of how methodological, technical, empirical and theoretical advances necessarily strongly bind together: the use of computation centers in the seventies would be comparable to the current democrati- zation of grid computing which impact dramatically changes the way social science is practiced. The aim of this symposium is take a reflexive positioning on these trends, situate them regarding similar practices, and establish the most crucial future issues to be tackled within that stream of research.
