Immersed methods do not require computational meshes to be conforming to the physical domain in which the problem is defined. This feature has enabled immersed methods to effectively tackle a large variety of problems such as, e.g., fluid-structure interaction applications involving large displacements and topology changes, handling trimmed CAD surfaces in isogeometric analysis, multi-phase flow applications in CFD, and challenging optimization applications.

This mini-symposium aims at bringing together researchers with different backgrounds to discuss and exchange new ideas and results related with immersed/embedded/fictitious domain technologies. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, techniques for faithful immersed representation of complex geometries (recently grouped together under the term immerseogeometric analysis), accurate imposition of the incompressibility constraint at the discrete level, adaptive local refinement at the interface, large-scale parallel implementation of immersed methods, accuracy and efficiency comparisons between different immersed methods, reliable quadrature strategies for intersected elements, accurate and stable enforcement of constraints along immersed boundaries and interfaces, novel numerical methods, and real-world applications of immersed methods.
