The Sixth Chinese-German Workshop on Computational and Applied Mathematics opened at Tongji University in Shanghai from Oct 9 to 13.

It was funded by Sino-German Science Center, an organization jointly run by the National Natural Science Foundation of China and the German Research Foundation to boost the two countries’ cooperation in natural, biological, management, and engineering sciences.

Some 30 researchers from China and Germany attended the event, including Xu Xuejun from Tongji University, Shi Zhongci from the Chinese Academy of Science, Hu Jun from Peking University, Carsten Carstensen from the Humboldt University of Berlin, Ronald Hoppe from the University of Augsburg, and Rolf Rannacher from Heidelberg University.

With a theme covering aspects from numerical analysis to scientific computation, the researchers discussed debated questions of multi-physics and partial differential equations, and enhanced mutual understanding of research projects and further studies. Their research findings will be published in the international Journal of Computational Mathematics soon.

As a biennial extravaganza for Chinese and German researchers in computational and applied mathematics, the workshop since its inception has tackled many difficult equations. The next session will be held at Keele University in Germany in 2019.
