Meta-modelling Day, October 11, 2010
This day provides a forum for applied mathematicians and application scientists to meet around the challenges of building mathematical models for real application problems.
The number of participants is limited to around 20. The location is Biblioteket, Eklundshof, Uppsala.

|11.00-11.20||Kersti Hermansson (Chemistry)||Philosophy of chemical modelling|
|11.25-11.45||Susanne Höfner (Astrophysics)||Starlight and standstorms: modelling of evolved stars|
|11.45-12.30||Everyone||Start of discussions, identification of interesting topics|
|12.30-14.00||Lunch at Eklundshof||Informal discussion|
|14.00-16 (ca)||Everyone||Discussion session, coffee around 15|
Photos from the day
The final participant count was 24 people from astrophysics, biology, chemistry, mathematics, and scientific computing, here posing for the mandatory conference photo (excluding the photographer).
