4th International Conference on Computational Engineering (ICCE 2017)

The International Conference on Computational Engineering (ICCE) took place from Thursday, September 28, to Friday, September 29, 2017. The conferecne provided a meeting place for researchers and practitioners working on computational methods in all disciplines of engineering and applied mathematics, with a special focus on doctoral researchers and young scientists. The aim of the conference was to discuss the state of the art in this challenging field, develop promising perspectives for future research and initiate cooperations.

A lot of AICES members were part of the conference. AICES Scientific Advisory Board member Prof. Max Gunzburger and Professor Dr. Manuel Torrilhon were invited to give a talk at the conference.

The conference was organized by the Graduate School of Computational Engineering (GSC CE) at TU Darmstadt together with the International Graduate School of Science and Engineering (IGSSE) at Technical University of Munich, the Stuttgart Research Center for Simulation Technology (SimTech) at University of Stuttgart and the Aachen Institute for Advanced Study in Computational Engineering Science (AICES) at RWTH Aachen University.

Dr. Julia Kowalski coordinates glacier test as part of the EnEX Initiative

Ingrid Reiweger, BOKU, Wien

A joint glacier test was conducted by the Enceladus Explorer Initiative, EnEx, at Langenferner near Santa Caterina Valfurva in Italy between August 9 and 29, 2017. The goal of the initiative, funded by the DLR, is to prepare a space mission for the search for extraterrestrial life on the Saturnian moon Enceladus, which possesses extensive water bodies underneath a thick sheet ice. As part of the EnEx Initiative, the EnEX-DiMIce project, directed by Dr. Julia Kowalski, models the probes' melting process in ice.Two chains, measuring longer than 30 meters, were installed with temperature probes in the glacier to measure the temperature of the ice over a longer period of time.
