The aim of the conference „Mathematics of Gas Transport“ is to bring leading experts of different fields together who are interested in today's challenges in gas transport. These include but are not limited to computer scientists, engineers, industrial people and last but not least mathematicians. Indeed, the focus is to offer a platform for discussions between the various disciplines. One day, the industrial day, will address practical issues of daily gas transport. The second, scientific oriented, will point to research challenges, in particular related to mathematical issues as they are studied in the CRC TRR 154.

We are looking forward to welcoming you in Berlin.
The TRR 154 Team
