The Leuven Mathematical Modeling & Computational Science Centre (LMCC)
The Leuven Mathematical Modeling and Computational Science Centre (LMCC), one of the 12 research centres of the Science, Engineering & Technology Group of the K.U.Leuven, unites researchers with shared interests and expertise in advanced modeling and simulation methods, cutting across traditional disciplinary boundaries. It also partners with industry in collaborative research projects.
The research in LMCC is strongly multi-disciplinary: It covers modeling from microscopic to macroscopic scale in many disciplines, simulation, optimization and control. High-performance computing is a key element in many projects.
The research is organized along 7 strategic research lines:
- Space plasma modeling
- Computational Chemistry and Physics of Molecules and Soft Materials
- Modeling of Biological Tissues
- Computational Modeling of Flow in Engineering
- Multi-scale Modeling and Simulation in Science and Engineering
- Non-deterministic Modeling in Applied Mechanics
- Systems, Control, and Optimization
For future scholars
The multi-disciplinary nature of the LMCC offers a challenging environment to young researchers with ample opportunity to broaden and deepen their knowledge. The K.U.Leuven also participates in the Flemish Supercomputer Centre, which guarantees access to a world-class computing infrastructure.
Scholars wishing to make a Ph.D. in one of the participating research groups of the LMCC study in the Leuven Arenberg Doctoral School. The school also maintains a list of other opportunities.
The LMCC organizes various activities aimed at researchers (internal and external) in modeling and simulation.
- Annual workshop
- Distinguished lecture series
- Thematic training program
Participating research groups sometimes also organise seminars for a broader audience interested in modeling and simulation.
The centre provides a single point-of-contact to companies in search of expertise or collaboration in the areas of modeling and simulation.
