Waves are one of the most distinct and most important phenomena in fluid mechanics. The aim of this summer school is to present a comprehensive series of lectures on various aspects of waves and their role in mathematical analysis and numerical simulation of different types of flows. The summer school is organized as a multidisciplinary event with topics ranging from theoretical and numerical mathematics up to physics and applications. The emphasize will be on models related to topics originating in environmental, biomedical and industrial applications. The summer course is prepared for graduate students, young scientists, and other interested specialists. Besides of the course lectures, the program will include a one day workshop (on Wednesday, August 29) dedicated to short, more advanced lectures given by attending scientists.

Place: Kácov, Czech Republic

The aim of the school is to promote the** interconnection of mathematical modeling, analysis, and computational methods used in solving ****complex (real-world) problems**. The lectures will be prepared with a broad multidisciplinary audience in mind, and at each school a broad scope, ranging from modeling to scientific computing, will be covered. Usually four main speakers deliver a series of three lectures. Ample time within the school is allocated for the promotion of informal scientific discussions among the participants.

Speakers and topics of the 2016 school are:

**Peter Bastian****(Universität Heidelberg, Germany)**, [Simulation of Multiphase Flows in Porous Media].**Jörg Liesen (Technische Universität Berlin, Germany)**, [Krylov subspaces. Classical mathematics, iterative methods, and surprisinglinks].**Jan Mandel (University of Colorado at Denver, USA)**, [Probability on spaces of functions, with applications to inverse problems and dataassimilation].**Richard Katz (University of Oxford, UK)**, [Two-phase fluid dynamics of partially molten rock: fundamentals and application to the Earth].

The school is organized under the auspices of the European Mathematical Society (EMS) and Faculty of Mathematics and Physics, Charles University in Prague (MFF UK), as an activity of the Nečas Center for Mathematical Modeling. Participants will have a possibility to present a short communication (maximally 10 minutes in the dependence on the number of

participants contributing to this kind of activity).

The deadline for registration and submission of abstracts is May 2, 2016.

Registration is now open at http://essam-masc.cuni.cz/ including the additional information about the venue, program and deadlines.
