Numerical partial differential equations (PDEs) are an important part of numerical simulation, the third component of the modern methodology for science and engineering, besides the traditional theory and experiment. In this workshop, cutting-edge numerical algorithms and their applications will be discussed. Each organizer will present a research project and lead a research group. They may also choose a junior co-leader, preferably someone with whom they do not have a long-standing collaboration, but who has enough experience to take on a leadership role. Other team members will be chosen from applicants and invitees. It is expected that each group will continue their project together and submit articles about their results to the conference proceedings.

The benefit of such a structured program with leaders, projects, and working groups planned in advance is based on the successful Women in Numbers (WIN) conferences and is intended to benefit all participants. Senior women will meet, mentor, and collaborate with the brightest young women in their field on a part of their research agenda of their choosing, and junior women and students will develop their network of colleagues and supporters and enter important new research areas, thereby improving their chances for successful research careers.
