Winter Schools in Computational Mathematics

About the Winter School Series

Winter schools in computational mathematics started as a four-year project (2001-2004) funded by the Research Council of Norway under grant number 137461/431. The project is funded for another two years under grant number 159868/V30.

The aim of the project is to organise a series of annual winter school with different topics in modern computational methods with special emphasis on partial differential equations and high performance computing. The schools last one week and are aimed at graduate/doctoral students and researchers at universities, research institutes or in industry. Advanced undergraduate students are also welcome. The number of participants is limited.

The winter schools are held at Geilo, which is a popular Norwegian ski resort. An important aspect of the winter schools is to make new contacts with other researchers. The atmosphere of the winter schools is informal, with room in the programme for skiing and other social activities..

About Geilo and Dr. Holms Hotel

Geilo is renowned as one of the best winter sports resorts in Northern Europe, located in the mountains between Oslo and Bergen (approximately 4 hours by train from each city). Geilo lies at an altitude of 800 meters with its highest alpine slope starting at 1178 meters above sea level. This ensures good snow conditions throughout the winter. Geilo offers 35 varied and well groomed downhill slopes and 18 lifts with a capacity of 22000 persons pr. hour. Moreover, there are excellent possibilities for cross country, with approximately 500 km of trails, both in the valley and in the mountains.

Dr. Holms Hotel is a distinguished hotel, with traditions back to 1909, located almost on top of the ski slopes.
