LabMath-Indonesia, founded on 1 June 2005, is an independent non-commercial research institute aimed to facilitate the execution of scientific research and to disseminate the results to the community.
Characteristic of the research is the use of advanced mathematical modelling and modern software and simulation tools. Examples of research areas from the natural, physical and technical sciences are ocean and coastal engineering, seismology for seismic events and hazard mitigation including tsunami hazards, examples with societal impact are decision support and operations research for production planning, space syntax, and coastal management.
Funding of research activities will be from national and international research grants and projects, and executed by temporary staff members together with university-students, supervised by experienced senior researchers.
The dissemination of modern mathematical methods and results is aimed both to university and secondary school education and to direct target groups of the research activities.
Invitation for participation
Coastal and Oceanic resilience by harnessing, simulating and observing Indonesian waters
Location: Laboratory for Harbor Infrastructure and Coastal Dynamics Technology, Yogyakarta, Indonesia
Date: 17 (and 18) May 2017
In various collaboration projects as part of the scientific collaboration between Indonesia and The Netherlands supported by SPIN in the past, much attention was given to basic science topics like Applied Math, Optics, and Fluid mechanics.
One result of these activities was the establishment of LabMath-Indonesia, an independent research institute in Bandung, where since various years the emphasis is to develop mathematical models to simulate and observe waves along the coasts and in deep water.
From the start on there has been collaboration with the Indonesian Hydrodynamic Laboratory (now called Balai Teknologi Hidrodinamika) in Surabaya, where a world class laboratory started to operate in the early 90’s, aimed for experiments on ships. A similar high class laboratory for coastal applications (Balai Teknologi Infrastruktur Pelabuhan dan Dinamika Pantai (BTIPDP-BPPT)) is situated at the campus of UGM in Yogyakarta; this laboratory will be the host for the master class.
The intention of the master class is to let students and other interested people get acquainted with the current exciting problems that are still to be solved in the area of ocean and coastal engineering.
