Organization of the FVCA8 conference

The team RAPSODI was deeply involved in the organization of the eighth edition of the conference Finite Volumes for Complex Application (FVCA8). The conference was held in Lille on June 2017. The conference was a great success. It gathered about 150 specialists —mostly academics and research engineers from the industry— of the finite volume methods and of their application to real world problems. Claire Chainais-Hillairet headed the organization committee, Clément Cancès was in charge of the publication of the proceedings, Caterina Calgaro and Emmanuel Creusé organized the social events, and all the members of the team were in charge of the reception of the participants.

From a team to a project team

The research team RAPSODI was created on August 2015, but its evolution to the project team level was effective on Nov. 1, 2017. This evolution was based on the positive evaluation by several internationally recognized experts of an extended version of our research program.
