4th International School on Numerical Modelling for Applied Superconductivity


Dear Colleagues,

I am pleased to announce the 4th International School on Numerical Modelling for Applied Superconductivity which will be held in Barcelona, Spain from 17 to 21 June 2024 at the Fusion for Energy Headquarters with the generous support of the European Society of Applied Superconductivity and IEEE Council on Superconductivity.

This School will provide attendees with the main concepts and methodologies for developing numerical simulations of all kinds of large-scale superconducting devices using both Low and High Temperature Superconductors. For this fourth edition, the course content will be focused on examples centered on two specific applications of great interest for the community: fusion magnets and superconducting electrical machines.

Following the successful past editions of this School, it will be “hands-on”: the theoretical lectures will be complemented by computer practice with state-of-the-art simulation software in various environments.

The school is of interest to students (Master, PhD), Post-Docs, engineers and scientists, and anyone else who wants to learn more about the challenges of modelling for applied superconductivity.

Detailed information for applicants will be communicated in the 2nd announcement.

Confirmed teachers include: Alfredo Portone, Luigi Reccia, José Lorenzo and Pietro Testoni from Fusion for Energy (Barcelona, Spain), as well as Mark Ainslie (King’s College London, United Kingdom), Bernardo Bordini (CERN, Switzerland), Luca Bottura, (CERN, Switzerland), Cristophe Geuzaine (University of Liège, Belgium), Yingzhen Liu (University of Harbin, China), Thomas Reis (Oswald Elektromotoren, Germany), Frederic Trillaud (Universidad Nacional Autonoma de Mexico, Mexico) and Fabio Villone (Università di Napoli ‘Federico II’, Italy).

We are looking forward to seeing you in Barcelona!

On behalf of the Organizing Committee,

Alfredo Portone, School Director
