Workshop on Numerical, Mathematical and Modeling Analysis related to Fluid Dynamics in Hydrogen Fuel Cells
University of Ottawa, May 10-12, 2006
Supported by University of Ottawa, Fields Institute and Mitacs

The workshop will be held at MONPETIT (MNT) hall, room 207 (the third day at MNT 204, adjacent to MNT 207), in the University of Ottawa campus.. The room is equipped with a computer display projector, slide and overhead projectors and three greenboards.
  
A light breakfast, and coffees during the breaks are offered at workshop room. The free lunch is at Jazzy Club (located in the space between Morisset, Fauteux and Thompson).

Here are some pictures from the workshop (JPG formt)
