SimLab Education Program

Due to the great success of the previous two SimLab Courses on Parallel Numerical Simulation in 2002 on the occasion of the SimLab opening and in 2003 and to further support Computational Science and Engineering (CSE) in south-eastern Europe, we announce the

Third SimLab Course on Parallel Numerical Simulation

- financed by DAAD -

scheduled for October 10 - October 16, 2004
Faculty of Technical Sciences, St. Kliment Ohridski University, Bitola, Republic of Macedonia

Application closed - almost 120 applications from eight countries -
all applicants have been informed!

Note that, in order to disseminate the SimLab idea to other countries and universities of the region, this year's course will be held in Macedonia!

Registration and Support:

The short course is open to everyone interested in the Lab's activities and in the topics of numerical simulation and parallel computing. If you are interested in participating, please send an email to Ioan Muntean not later than July 31, 2004.

Your email should contain the following information:

  • Family name
  • First name
  • Date of birth
  • Nationality
  • Professional status (undergraduate / graduate / PhD student, Post Doc, assistant, professor, ...)
  • Your field (applied mathematics, computer science, mechanical engineering, ...)
  • Institution
  • Address
  • Email address

This is just to get an overview of how many participants we have to expect (appropriate size of lecture room etc.).

Attending the course is free of charge!

German Academic Exchange Service has granted support for students from outside Bitola, either in Macedonia or in one of its neighbouring countries. Hence, we offer up to 40 scholarships covering accommodation (6 nights from Sunday, October 10, until Saturday, October 16, including half board) as well as some subsidy for travel expenses (depending on the actual cost). Students who want to apply for this support should mention it in their registration email and give some estimate of their travel cost. In case of an application for support, we need your registration email not later than July 10. With these scholarships, we want to especially encourage students from outside Bitola to take this chance of some training in a highly relevant and up-to-date field of research.

Applications will be taken into account based on a first-come-first-served strategy and some regional balancing. If you know someone who might be interested in taking part as well, please inform him or her!

For any questions, please contact Ioan Muntean.

We are looking forward to your registration or application - see you in Bitola! You can find informations about Bitola on the Bitola official site also in English language: http://www.bitola.gov.mk/
