After the success of the Sharing Higher-order Advanced Know-how on Finite Volume conferences, the red SHARK conference in 2014 (link) , the blue SHARK in 2015 (link) and the great white SHARK in 2016 (link) , the purple SHARK in 2018 (link) , welcome to the

Silver SHARK, May 21-25, 2018

The workshop will be held at the Hotel Parque Do Rio, close to Braga, Portugal, Portugal, from May the 21st up to May the 25th 2018. The main purpose of this conference is to strengthen the collaborations between Finite Volume (FV) field actors and to share the burden of research and development of numerical codes of FV type. This workshop brings the opportunity for Researchers from International Universities to discuss the State-of-the-Art of high(er)-order Finite Volume methods for a large range of Physics and Engineering problems. Each morning presentations are given by experts in the field while the afternoon sessions are dedicated to intensive parallel workshops articulated around few collaborators.

The purposes of the workshops are

A lot of time will be dedicated to discussions and work sessions. As such the number of participants is limited to 35 to 40 attendents. Registration must be done by email at

The fees covers the hotel (Sunday till Friday), three meals per day (Sunday diner untill Friday lunch), the coffee breaks, the registration, the transport from at to Porto airport, and the workshop diner.

The area of Esposende is located between the Atlantic ocean and the Cavado river, the Hotel is surrounded by luxurious private gardens and pine-woods offering peace and calm. Supplemented with the famous Portuguese cuisine, SHARK-FV conference provides a perfect environment for sharing unforgettable experiences. The "fees" will cover all your expenses during your stay, transfer from the aiport, breakfasts, lunches, dinners and hotel room.


The conference themes revolve around High- and Very High-Order Finite Volume methods for (news themes are welcome)
