S3: Advances in Modeling and Simulation of Complex Heat Transfer and Fluid Flow
Heat transfer and fluid flow are fundamental phenomena in nature and engineering. Many aspects in production and daily life are closely related to heat transfer and fluid flow processes. Modeling and simulation of heat transfer and fluid flow are crucial for a wide range of scientific and industrial applications at various spatial and temporal scales, with increased interests in recent years.
Along with the development of computer industry and the advancement of numerical methods, significant advances have been witnessed in modeling and simulation of heat transfer and fluid flow in past decades. Solid foundation in both hardware and software has been established to study the processes because of its importance in reducing production costs, discovering new phenomena and developing new technologies, etc. However, accurate modeling and efficient, robust simulation of complex heat transfer and fluid flow still remain challenging. Multi-disciplinary research effort is a clear and general trend for the modeling and simulation of heat transfer and fluid flow, such as ‘multi’-scale, ‘multi’-modeling, advanced ‘multi’-algorithms, ‘multi’-physics, heterogeneous parallel computing with ‘multi’-hardware, ‘multi’-application, etc.
The proposed symposium aims to bring together researchers to highlight the current developments of heat transfer and fluid flow both in theory and computational methods, to exchange the latest research ideas, and to promote further collaborations in the community. We invite investigators to contribute to this symposium with original research articles/abstracts as well as comprehensive review articles addressing the recent advances and/or challenges in mathematical and numerical modeling, algorithm, and computation of complex heat transfer and fluid flow. Only the influential work will be considered in this symposium.

S6: Numerical Methods for Buckling Analysis and Design of Thin-Walled Structures
The load carrying capacity of thin-walled structures is known to be significantly influenced by stability aspects such as buckling. A reliable prediction of buckling phenomena requires a robust, efficient and accurate analysis tool and consideration of a number of inherent structural imperfections which often dominate the overall non-linear elastic response. The reliable prediction of buckling includes both critical load, instability deformation, secondary branches and imperfection sensitivities or any combination thereof and calls for sophisticated numerical methods which allow to assess the various physical responses during tracing the equilibrium path of structural buckling. Furthermore, robustness, accuracy and computational efficiency are key factors for an innovative and sustainable thin-walled structural design which exploits the full lightweight potential.
This mini-symposium aims at bringing together researchers from across the structural buckling community to discuss and exchange latest achievements in the field of novel numerical methods for buckling analysis and design of thin-walled structure research. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to computational and algorithmic aspects of the analytical and semi-analytical methods, reduced-order modeling methods, finite element methods, isogeometric analysis, composite materials and optimization methods, for buckling modeling, analysis and design of thin-walled structures.

S7: Symposium on Advances in Virtual Testing, Simulations and Predictive Methods in Creep, Fatigue, and Environmental Cracking
S8: Advances in Modelling, Simulation and Control of Cyber-Physical Systems
Cyber-physical Systems (CPS) are complex dynamical systems that combine both physical (plant, process, network) and cyber (software, decision-making algorithm, computation) components, whose operational evolutions are monitored, integrated, coordinated, and controlled by computing and control units.
Cyber-physical systems exist in a wide variety of technological applications, such as intervention (e.g., collision avoidance); precision (e.g., robotic surgery and nano-level manufacturing); operation in dangerous or inaccessible environments (e.g., search and rescue, firefighting, and deep-sea exploration); coordination (e.g., air traffic control, warfighting); efficiency (e.g., zero-net energy buildings); and augmentation of human capabilities (e.g. in healthcare monitoring and delivery). Since the correct functioning of such systems is often safety-critical, their formal modeling and analysis (including reliability analysis) are of utmost importance. One of the most challenging problems in the domain of cyber-physical systems is the heterogeneity of their components (such as sensors, actuators, signal processing units), which makes modeling and automated model processing difficult. To date, no unifying theory nor systematic design methods, techniques, and tools exist for such systems. Individual (mechanical, electrical, network or software) engineering disciplines only offer partial solutions for the design of cyber-physical systems.
This Symposium aims to collect new contributions in the area of modeling, simulation, and control as well as reliability analysis of cyber-physical systems, ranging from the introduction of a new appropriate set of concepts, techniques to their practical implementation and applications with a particular emphasis on applied aspects.
The topics of research areas covered for this Symposium are:
Heterogeneous design of cyber-physical systems;
Multi-Paradigm Modelling of cyber-physical systems;
