The finite volume method in its various variants is a space discretization technique for partial differential equations based on the fundamental physical principle of conservation. Implemented as density-based or pressure-based (SIMPLE family of algorithms) method, it has been used successfully in many applications including fluid dynamics, magnetohydrodynamics, structural analysis, nuclear physics, and semiconductor theory.

The finite volume methods preserve qualitative properties of continuous problems at the discrete level, such as conservation, monotonicity, etc. This structural approach to the discretization of partial differential equations becomes particularly important for multi-physics and multi-scale applications.

The goal of this conference is to bring together mathematicians, physicists, and engineers interested in the developments and applications of the finite volume method.
