Aim of the School:
MSFS2018 is an international-short-term school aimed to introduce modeling “from fundamental phenomena up to complex multiphysics environment and multiscale” to fellows involved in research, both in academy and industries, in the field of food and bio processes. Particularly, the school is mainly addressed to fellows involved in research in food and bio-science, technology and engineering, who have limited experiences in modeling and/or fellows with intermediate knowledge who are willing to further improve their modeling skills both in vertical (i.e.: going from simple mono-physics, quite linear problems to multi-physics, non linear problems) and in horizontal direction (i.e.: going from mono-scale modeling to multi-scale modeling).
In the last years, the members of MSFS2018 scientific committee, together with colleagues from all over the World, have built a platform of academic and industrial researchers working about virtualization (modeling – from multiscale to multiphysics, simulation, optimization, etc) in food and bio sector and sharing the vision that modeling and simulation are today under-represented in food and bio processing, compared with the advantages that this approach has brought in other technological sectors.
COST Action 15118 FoodMC will grant financial support as contribution to travel and lodging expenses of 10 selected participants (further details will be published on www6.inra.fr/foodmc).
Scientific Committee members share the vision that modeling and simulation represent an irrepraceable tool in food and bio processing, compared with the advantages that this approach has brought in other technological sectors.
MSFS2018 is included in the outcome of the IFA Special Interest Group on Virtualization in Food Engineering.
A maximum number of 50 participants will be selected on the base of their CV and motivation. Priority will be given to PhD students, Post-Doc and Researchers involved in industrial R&D.
The Organizing Committee willl waive registration fees to 3 outstanding participants from
Inclusiveness Target Countries (ITCs) selected among applicants. All other participants from ITCs
will be granted a reduction of 50% on registration fees above indicated. All accepted participants
(trainees) who come from:
1. COST Full Members / COST Cooperating Member;
2. Approved NNC( Near Neighbour Countries) institutions;
3. Approved European RTD Organisations;
are eligible to COST Trainee Grant. The Trainee Grant is a contribution to the overall travel,
accommodation and meal expenses of the Grantee. Different Grants amount can be attributed to
each trainee. Fees include teaching material and a temporary user license for the commercial
softwares used in the course. Fees also include: 8 coffee breaks, 4 lunches and Gala dinner.
