We would like to thank all of the attendees of the first SHARK-FV Conference for this great and productive week!

We are looking forward to welcoming you in Portugal for the next SHARK-FV Conference!


The first Sharing Higher-order Advanced Know-how on Finite Volume conference, SHARK-FV 2014, will be held at the Hotel Parque Do Rio, close to Braga, Portugal, from April the 28th to May the 2nd. 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 and National Laboratories 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 for which a moderator will be designated to animate the scientific activities (informal presentations, coding, reading, etc.). As such the number of participants is limited to 35 attendents.

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