The workshop will focus on recent developments in numerical methods for the efficient and accurate simulation of multiscale transport problems in porous media. Although considerable research in flow modeling is application driven, all facets of these complex simulations are of interest, including discretizations, grid generation, adaptivity, efficient solvers, interface tracking methods, and numerical subgrid upscaling techniques. Of particular interest is the relationship and interaction of these key components of the solution process in real applications.

Discretization Methods
 discontinuous coefficients
