6) Title: 2nd Symposium on Computational Simulation and Experimental Analysis of Hygrothermal Phenomena in Building Envelopes

Organizer: Assoc. Prof. Dr. Zuzana Hlaváčová, Department of Physics, Faculty of Engineering, Slovak University of Agriculture in Nitra, Tr. A. Hlinku 2, 94976 Nitra, Slovak Republic 


The overall degradation of a building material or structure can be expressed, in the simplest way, by a qualitative or numerical indicator of the global condition level which determines the loss of performance of the considered material, building part or the whole building under its climatic environment over time. Hygrothermal phenomena are responsible for a substantial part of degradation processes particularly in the cold regions, where water condensation and freezing belong to the main deterioration mechanisms. The load-bearing structures and surfaces are parts of a building where the assessment of the degradation level is most significant. The interface between structure and surface layer is another important point because if the adhesion of both layers is compromised, whole parts of surface layer can be detached. Computer simulation is a powerful tool for an assessment of the degradation level of a particular material or structure. However, the quality of input data presents a critical factor for the achievement of reliable results. Therefore, in any analysis of the environmental impact on degradation of building envelopes computational simulations and experimental measurements are supposed to be done together.
The symposium brings together mathematicians active in numerical analysis and applied mathematics on one side, and experimental physicists and materials engineers working in the field of hygrothermal analysis and degradation of materials on the other. The main topics include but are not limited to:
  • Characterization of environmental impact on buildings
  • Computational modeling of hygrothermal processes in building envelopes
  • Determination of input parameters for computational analyses
  • Experimental investigation of hygrothermal processes 
  • Computer-aided service life estimates

7) Title: The Second Symposium on Computational Methods in Economics and Nature Use.

Medvedeva, Acting Director of the Department of Business Informatics and Mathematical Modelling, and the Department of Systems Analysis and Decision Making, Graduate School of Economics and Management, Ural Federal University, 19 Mira St., Yekaterinburg, Russia, 620002.

8) Title: Plasmonics and Nanophotonics

Organizer: Tatjana Gric, Department of Electronic Systems, Vilnius Gediminas Technical University, Vilnius, Lithuania and Semiconductor Physics Institute, Center for Physical Sciences and Technology, Vilnius, Lithuania

E-mail: Tatjana.Gric@Dal.Ca

The science and engineering of optical interaction with nanostructures is studied by the field of plasmonics. Prospects of subwavelength confinement and enhancement of optical fields near properly designed nanoscale objects has opened a gateway to extensive investigations of a variety of plasmonic optical phenomena in recent years.
Consequently, the dynamic and vibrant field of plasmonics has reached across various disciplines, suggesting exciting applications in chemistry, material science, biology, medicine, and engineering. Moreover, the field of metamaterials has been enriched and enhanced by the plasmonicoptics, for example, metasurfaces, in which based on the collective electromagnetic behavior of many subwavelength inclusions and building elements as "meta-atoms", novel engineered composite materials with unconventional bulk and surface properties—such as near-zero material parameters, and extreme-value material parameters—have been suggested and implemented.
Thus, metasurfaces, a class of planar metamaterials possessing the outstanding abilities to mold light flow have recently attracted intensive attention. The main goal of the metasurfaces is to achieve the anticipated phase profile by patterning subwavelength structures at the interface between two ordinary materials. An additional, yet a very important degree of freedom to fully control the wave propagationis gained thanks to the rationally designed phase. It should be mentioned, that anomalous reflection and refraction have been verified in the infrared region.
Metasurface-based optical devices, such as vortex plates, wave plates and ultra-thin focusing lenses have also been realized for different types of incident light, i.e., linearly polarized light, circularly polarized light, or vertex beams. Now is the time that the fundamental research in the field is finding its way towards first applications and into industry.
