National Workshop on

We are pleased to announce a national gathering as a result of joint efforts across different Norwegian research institutions. This workshop aims to bring together researchers to discuss the recent advances and future challenges of applied and computational mathematics within interdisciplinary problem solving. Special focus will be devoted to applications within the fields of […]


We are very satisfied with the group’s strong presence at the SIAM GS 2019. Through our numerous (excellent!) presentations, participation as organisers of minisymposia and sheer number of participants, we definitely made our mark on the conference. Also, Inga Berre was elected as a SIAM GS officer and secretary of the SIAG Geosciences committee.


SIAM GS - Part I

Some fifteen members of the PMG are going to the SIAM GS 2019 conference. We take part as organisers of the following minisymposia:

Verification Benchmarks for Single-phase Flow in Three-dimensional Fractured Porous Media: Inga Berre, Eirik Keilegavlen and Ivar Stefansson

Advances in Modeling of Non-linear Elasticity and Plasticity for Geomaterials: Inga Berre and Michele Starnoni



The interdisciplinary geothermal energy conference GeoEnergy2019 was held in Bergen this week. The PMG was well represented with five participants and three presentations. The picture is from Sæunn Halldórsdóttir’s presentation on supercritical and superheated geothermal systems in Iceland.

Sæunn presenting


Four of the group members went to last week’s European Geothermal Workshop in Strasbourg, along with our good friend and collaborator Luisa Zuluaga, from the UiB geology department. The workshop attracted a diverse range of participants from working on all aspects of geothermal exploitation, from monitoring and characterisation to risk management and modelling. We congratulate […]

Letter from CMWR 2018 in Saint Malo

This week seven members of the PMG went to France to attend the conference Computational Methods in Water Resources XXII (CMWR). Optimistic as I am, I showed up with swimming suit and sunglasses, and the rain coat was left in Bergen. Of course, I never thought of checking the weather report, and my dreams of […]

Finse workshop on efficient solvers for fractured porous media

This January we have hosted a workshop in solvers for materials with high-aspect-ratio inclusions. The event was located in beautiful snowy Finse, known as the highest point of the Oslo-Bergen railway. Several international experts in the field have given interesting talks that sat the ground for focused and fruitful discussions. We are grateful […]

Benchmarking workshop

This Thursday and Friday, the PMG hosted a workshop on modeling and benchmarking of porous media. The event was highly enjoyable and interesting with an abundance of excellent contributions, and we are sure it will inspire future work and collaboration. We are very grateful to Bernd Flemisch for initiating the benchmarking article whence the workshop […]

Workshop on fracture flow

The group is currently making the last preparations for the upcoming workshop Modeling and Benchmarking of Fractured Porous Media which is to take place Thursday and Friday of this week. We are very happy for this opportunity to invite collaborators and colleagues to Bergen for what we are sure will be a most exciting, interesting […]

Guest lectures and seminar

This week, we are very pleased to have Prof. Peter Knabner from University of Erlangen-Nuremberg visiting. During his stay, Prof. Knabner will give some lectures on the topic “Flow, Transport and Multicomponent Reaction in Porous Media: Mathematical Modelling, Analysis and Simulation”, taking place

Tuesday, 28.03, 14:15-16:00, Hjørnet, Natural science building
