The symposium (International Symposium on High-Fidelity Computational Methods & Applications 2019, HiFiCoMa 2019), which will be held in Shanghai, is to enhance deployment and applications of the high-fidelity methods in complex industrial fluid flows. Due to the increasingly stringent precision requirements for industrial designs, these methods have recently attracted great attention. The objective of this symposium is to bring together experts in computational science and experts in engineering application to exchange new ideas and discuss development perspectives of high-fidelity methods. It also offers a platform to show the exciting scientific and engineering study undertaken in this area. The symposium will also end with a Nektar++ workshop to provide a more opportunity to understand how to apply high order spectral/hp element software.

The selected papers are recommended to be published in Advances in Aerodynamics, Journal of Hydrodynamics or Acta Aerodynamica Sinica.

Aim & Scope

High-fidelity computational methods are emerging tools that underpin science and engineering. Due to the increasingly stringent precision requirements for industrial designs,  these methods have recently attracted even greater attention. This symposium will bring together world leading experts to discuss novel developments, new perspectives and industrial applications. The ultimate goal of the symposium is to expand the range of application of high-fidelity numerical tools in engineering practice. 

Abstracts or posters are invited on the research, application and deployment of high-fidelity methods with a particular interest in computational mathematics,  aerodynamics and hydrodynamics.

Topics include but not limit to:

  • Theoretical and computational advances in high-fidelity computational methods.
  • Modelling of high-fidelity simulations for complex fluid flows.
  • Applications of high-fidelity computational methods in fluid mechanics.
  • Parallelisation and deployment for industrial applications.

Call for Minisymposia

Prospective minisymposia organisers are asked to submit a proposal consisting of a title, a description (not to exceed 100 words), and a list of speakers and titles of their presentations. It is recommended that a session organiser makes the first presentation. Please send your proposal to
