Aim of the Conference

The conference is devoted to aspects of modeling, computational handling, and applications of the topics listed below. Original contributions and interesting applications are welcome. Particular attention will be given to papers fostering research at the interfaces. We invite researchers to organize stream sessions not only dedicated to a certain topic but to different approaches to the same problem as well.
