IWR Colloquium on Computational Methods in Sciences

The IWR Colloquium serves as a platform for the interdisciplinary dialogue which characterizes the field of scientific computing. It is organized by Dr. Dirk Rehn, Coordinator IWR Colloquium.

Every semester, members of the IWR and its affiliated institutions as wells as renowned international experts are invited to present their latest scientific results and discuss the upcoming challenges in the field of scientific computing.

We gladly invite you to join this interdisciplinary dialogue.
