Minisymposium on

Trusted Numerical Computations, June 19-20, 2018 in Krakow, Poland

International Conference on Emerging Trends in Applied Mathematics and Mechanics



The quality of numerical computations or the results of simulations may be impacted with method and round-off errors. In addition, numerical quality impacts the execution time, reproducibility and general performances, especially when dealing with sensitive functions such as the ones that we can find in applied mathematics and mechanics, when considering problems in physics, engineering sciences, biology, economy, etc. The design, verification and optimization of numerical software becomes a strong challenge to guarantee the soundness and the efficiency of computations. To cope with numerical issues, to know how to measure and minimize errors or to imagine other ways to better refine meshes, the formal verification of numerical simulations is mandatory. The TNC minisymposium intends to be a step toward this design, verification and optimization and, more generally, toward the definition of trusted numerical computations.


TNC 2018 is a minisymposium on Trusted Numerical Computations. TNC 2018 will be collocated with the international conference on Emerging Trends in Applied Mathematics and Mechanics (ETAMM 2018).

The minisymposium TNC2018 will be held from June 19 to June 20, 2018 in the Jagiellonian University in Krakow which is the oldest university in Poland. The minisymposium will consist of invited plenary talks and contributed papers on recent results and future challenges in the field. The accepted papers will be published in the easychair proceedings.
