COST Action CA15118 FoodMC

Summer School 2017

Summer school at Vico Equense, ITALY, June 5-8, 2017

COST Action 15118 FoodMC, together with IFA Special Interest Group on Virtualization in Food Engineering is happy to announce that application to the training international school on Modeling and Simulation of Food and Bio Processes (MSFS2017 - Vico Equense, ITALY, June 5-8, 2017) is now open.

The application procedure is available at

MSFS2017 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 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 single-scale modeling to multi-scale modeling).

The preliminary programme and the list of confirmed lecturers are available on the school website.

The content of lectures includes:
- Introduction to modeling and simulation in food and bio processing;
- Fundamentals of PDE numerical approximation and thermo-fluid dynamics modelling;
- The porous media approach: a pathway to modeling in food engineering;
- Multiphysics problems simulation;
- Modeling of material properties;
- Practical issues in domain representation and meshing;
- The accuracy of modeling and simulation: practical issues;
- Multiscale modeling in food engineering.

For each topic, practical examples will be solved using software tools provided by teachers and/or developed by participants.

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.

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
