Conference Themes

The CHoPS 2024 conference will be organised around method-specific and application-specific themes. These will include core themes from previous CHoPS conferences as well as including new and emerging fields of research. We hope to achieve a balance between topics and scientific methods as well as integrating industrial case studies alongside fundamental research within each theme.

Method-Specific Themes

The conference will include the following three method-specific themes:​

  • Modelling and Simulation​
    • Innovation in Computational Methods (DEM, DEM-CFD, SPH, MPM, FEM, LBM, PBM, etc.)
    • Multiscale and Multiphysics / Coupled Simulations
    • Digital twins
    • Open-source model development
  • Experimental methods and measurement​
    • Advances and novel developments
    • Standards & Standardisation
  • AI/ML and data approaches for particulate solids
    • Open-access Data
    • Digital twins
    • Reduced-Order Modelling
    • Optimisation Methodologies
    • AI Frameworks for modelling granular systems
