The increasing necessity to solve complex problems in
science and engineering accounting for all the coupling
occurring on the different scales of the problem
requires the development of new ideas and methods
which can effectively provide accurate numerical
solutions in affordable computing times.
The objective of Coupled Problems 2009 is to present
and discuss state of the art, mathematical methods,
numerical methods and computational techniques for
solving coupling problems of multidisciplinary character in
science and engineering. Emphasis will be given on
showing the potential of new computational methods
for solving practical multidisciplinary problems of
Previous editions on the conference were held in the Island
of Santorini, Greece (2005) and Ibiza, Spain (2007),
Coupled Problems 2007 attracted some 180 participants.
The goal of COUPLED PROBLEMS 2009 is to make a
step forwards in the formulation and solution of real life
problems with a multidisciplinary vision accounting for
all the complex couplings involved in the physical
description of the problem.
