About EMCL

The Engineering Mathematics and Computing Lab (EMCL), headed by Prof. Dr. Vincent Heuveline, is a research group at the Interdisciplinary Center for Scientific Computing (IWR), dedicated to providing a stimulating and supportive environment for innovative research at the interface between applied mathematics and computer science. The EMCL is located at Heidelberg University, Germany. The EMCL is characterised by its openness to multidisciplinary research in the field of engineering and scientific computing. At the EMCL, interdisciplinarity characterises both the day-to-day activities and the long-term direction of research. Our challenge is to enable world-class scientific research  through the use of cutting-edge supercomputing technologies.

Working at EMCL often involves developing innovative mathematical approaches, methodologies and technological tools to gain new insights into the physical world. EMCL currently has four main areas of research. These areas are

The research group aims to develop the fundamental understanding and intellectual means to model complex phenomena, and to provide a foundation for the development of new high performance technologies. Emphasising the importance of application-oriented research, part of EMCL's activities is dedicated to the transfer of cutting-edge developments to the most demanding challenges, with a focus on the following application areas:

EMCL researchers are recognised partners in numerous collaborative research and development projects. EMCL strongly encourages students to actively pursue their own research and entrepreneurial ideas.
