2024 Blended Intensive Programme (B.I.P.) in Mathematical Modelling

L'Aquila, June - July 2024

Pre-Registration is now open. The deadline is April 15, 2024

Overview

The 2024 Blended Intensive Programme (BIP) in Mathematical Modelling involves a set of short courses addressed to MSc and PhD students of the InterMaths Network and the EULiST European Alliance. It is activated by the Department of Information Engineering, Computer Science and Mathematics of the University of L'Aquila in cooperation with the INGV and the GSSI.
The 2024 BIP in Mathematical Modelling is part of the education and training programme under the NATIONAL CENTRE FOR HPC, BIG DATA AND QUANTUM COMPUTING. 

The programme will revolve around applied mathematics viewed as an interdisciplinary area at the interface with engineering, physics, economy, geology, biology and social sciences.

Students can choose between 3 curricula:

Suitable Artificial Intelligence and High-Performance Computing techniques will be introduced in all three curricula.

Each curriculum will consist of:

  • An online preparatory module in the period June 24 - 28, 2024, 15 hours with three mini-courses related to these preliminary subjects: introduction to PDEs, AI and HPC.

  • And in-presence week in the period July 1 - 5, 2024 with in-presence courses, training AI-HPC lab. sessions and final project activity.

Organising committee

  • Federica Di Michele (INGV - National Institute of Geophysics and Volcanology)

  • Simone Fagioli (UnivAQ - Univerisiy of L'Aquila)

  • Donato Pera (UnivAQ - Univerisiy of L'Aquila)

  • Bruno Rubino (UnivAQ - Univerisiy of L'Aquila)

All the students who wish to join our BIP must be currently enrolled in an MSc or PhD course in one of the following disciplines:

  • Mathematics

  • Applied mathematics

  • Physics and Geophysics

  • Engineering

  • Geology

  • Or similar subjects.

Courses will focus on these topics: Earthquake engineering, Computational Seismology, Geology, Pedestrian movement modelling, Epidemiology, Opinion dynamics, Earth observation and Climate models.
Students can choose the follwoing curricula:
 - Modelling Earthquakes (ME)  will be based on the study of stochastic and elastodynamics equations for earthquake dynamics.
 - Mathematical Models for Natural Disasters (MMND)  will be based on the study of reaction-diffusion, elastodynamic and fluid dynamics.
 - Modelling and Simulations of Social-Behavioural Phenomena (MSSBP) will be based on the study of reaction-diffusion-aggregation equations and conservation laws.



The participation of students and teachers will be supported by the
new Erasmus short mobility scholarship and Erasmus Staff or Teaching Mobility scholarship. 


Interested students can fill the pre-registration form below in this page and contact the International office of their Institution.

Getting there

How to reach L'Aquila

By plane

The closest airports are in Rome (Fiumicino Airport https://www.adr.it/fiumicino & Ciampino Airport https://www.adr.it/ciampino) and in Pescara (Aeroporto d’Abruzzo http://www.abruzzoairport.com/). From Ciampino and Fiumicino there is a direct bus to l’Aquila (you can see timetable and fares here http://www.gasparionline.it/ ).


By train/bus

Since L’Aquila railway station is not well connected, we suggest to arrive to the stations of Rome or Giulianova (if you travel on the East coast along the Adriatic sea). There are direct bus connections from the stations of Roma Tiburtina and Giulianova to the Bus Terminal Collemaggio in L'Aquila city center  (see http://www.tuabruzzo.it) and to the bus stop  SS17 - Amiternum ( see http://www.tuabruzzo.it, http://www.gasparionline.it/ and https://www.flixbus.it/). 

By car

L'Aquila is connected with the A24 Rome - Teramo highway, consider the exit L'Aquila Ovest for the conference venue, L'Aquila Est for the city center.

From Rome: take the A24 highway from Roma Est.
From Naples or Florence: it is possible to take the A24 from the A1 at Rome, using the highway link from the south or north.
From Bologna: coming from the A14, take the Teramo - Giulianova exit, then the freeway to Teramo, where you can join the A24.
From Bari or Pescara: Take the A25 from Pescara, exit at Bussi and follow the signs for L'Aquila SS17.

 

Registration

Students from our partner Institutions will be supported by the new Erasmus short mobility scholarship. Please contact your International Relations Office once you filled out the form at the link below.

DEADLINE FOR PRE-REGISTRATION IS APRIL 15 2024.
