Last but not least we have already decided that the SHARK #3 will take place next year, same place, same concept, so welcome to



After the success of the first SHARK-FV conference in 2014 (link) , the second Sharing Higher-order Advanced Know-how on Finite Volume conference, SHARK-FV 2015, will be held at the Hotel Parque Do Rio, close to Braga, Portugal, from May the 18th up to May the 22th. 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. As such the number of participants is limited to 35 attendents. Registration must be done by email at
