Cyberinformatics and Numerics Working Group


The Cyberinformatics and Numerics Working Group deals with technical computational aspects of the CSDMS, ensures that the modeling system properly functions and is accessible to users; software protocols are maintained, along with model standardization and visualization; and works with our cyberinformatic partners. The Cyber Working Group last met on March 3, 2009, at the University of California, Santa Barbara, CA. Presentations and other information about the meeting are available at Cyberinformatics Meeting 2009 March.

Eckart Meiburg received his degree in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Karlsruhe, Germany, in 1981. He was a DAAD fellow in Chemical Engineering at Stanford during 1981-1982, before completing his Ph.D. degree at the DLR in Goettingen in 1985. After returning to Stanford as a postdoc from 1986 to 1987, he served on the faculties of Brown University and the University of Southern California. Since 2000, he has been a member of the Mechanical Engineering department at the University of California, Santa Barbara, where he served as department chair from 2003-2007. His current research focuses on gravity and turbidity currents, as well as particle-laden and interfacial flows. Professor Meiburg has held visiting positions at the Universite Joseph Fourier (Grenoble), ETH Zurich, Ecole Superieure de Physique et de Chimie Industrielles (Paris), the Max Planck Institute for Dynamics and Self- Organization (Goettingen), and the University of Western Australia (Perth). He has received the Presidential Young Investigator Award, the Humboldt Research Award, and the Senior Gledden Fellowship, and he is a Fellow of the American Physical Society. In addition, he holds memberships in ASME, SIAM and Euromech. He is Associate Editor for the European Journal of Mechanics B/Fluids, and on the Editorial Board of the Journal of Turbulence. Furthermore, he has served on the Frenkiel and Acrivos Award Committees.


The next meeting of the Cyberinformatics and Numerics Working Group will be held jointly with the Hydrology Focus Research Group and the EKT Working Group. The two day meeting is being planned for November 16-17, 2009 near the CSDMS Integration Facility at the Millennium Harvest House Hotel in Boulder, Colorado. Interested: Read more about the meeting and how to participate.

Format: The format will consist of a mix of presentations, demonstrations and hands-on exercises, breakout discussion groups, and writing sessions. Most time will be devoted to breakout-group and whole-group discussions.
