Workshop on floods and shallow waters in Mexico

From November 25 to 27th 2015, took place a Workshop on floods and shallow waters, the aim was to gather scientists interested in Mathematical and Computing Modeling for floods and shallow waters in order to exchange expertise and to promote collaborative projects to generate knowledge and strategies to mitigate damages caused by floods in Tabasco and other regions in Mexico.

Workshop was organized as part of the Network on Mathematics and Development created by Mexican National Council for Science and Technology and was held at Outreach and Training Center from the Universidad Juárez Autónoma de Tabasco with the participation of 27 scientists from 12 different institutions.

CIMAT’s researchers associated to the TCAiNMaND project attended to the workshop and gave a lecture titled “An integral application for optimum modeling on physical phenomena” showing progress on CAD’s modeling from problem geometry, numerical simulation and information’s post process and includes a module to optimize. Those developments are related to TCAiNMaND’s Work Package 8: Multiobjective optimization form decision making.

Forthcoming for 2016:

  • Graduate Master’s and Doctorate’s students on this specific area
  • To arrange a meeting to discuss the problem of flood in Tabasco’s State with authorities and academics from Holland, Spain, France and Mexico
  • To formalize collaboration among academics in Holland, Mexico and Spain working on this área

The research leading to these results has received funding from the European Community's Seventh Framework Programme, Marie Curie International Research Staff Exchange Scheme (IRSES) under grant agreement n° 612607
