You are cordially invited to the 6th International Smoothed Particle Hydrodynamics European Research Interest Community (SPHERIC) Workshop at the institute for Fluid Dynamics and Ship Theory of the Hamburg University of Technology.

The workshop is the only worldwide event which exclusively focuses on the Smoothed-Particle-Hydrodynamics (SPH) methodology and related simulation approaches. SPH has recently gained enhanced attention in the area of scientific computing. Exemplary applications refer to the development of galaxies in astrophysics, environmental engineering, marine and coastal engineering, nuclear power engineering, medical engineering or geotechnical problems.

The successful concept of SPHERIC is due to a methodological focus in an interdisciplinary application environment, integrating the know-how of physicists, mathematicians, IT experts and engineers from academia and industry. On behalf of the organizing team, it is a pleasure and honor to us to invite scientists to the 6th International SPHERIC Workshop at the Hamburg University of Technology, Hamburg, Germany. We are looking forward to welcoming you in Hamburg, an exciting and cosmopolitan city, and sharing a successful and enjoyable meeting with you.
