We are delighted to announce the 3rd edition of the summer school on "Flow and Transport in Porous and Fractured media: Development, Protection, Management and Sequestration of Subsurface Fluids", which will take place at the CNRS center in Cargèse (www.iesc.univ-corse.fr) from July 20th 2015 to August 1st 2015. It is funded by CNRS (www.cnrs.fr) and the University of Rennes 1 (www.univ-rennes1.fr).

The registration fee is of 900 € and includes the accommodation, lunches and coffee breaks at the institute.

The objectives of the school are to provide an overview of fundamental processes and recent theoretical and methodological advances in flow, transport and chemical reactions in porous and fractured media. The state of the art in crucial applications, including carbon dioxide sequestration, global water management and nuclear waste disposal, as well as present cutting-edge research in the related fields, will also be presented.

The program of each day will include 4 lectures focusing on fundamental processes (1 hour each) and 3 seminars presenting cutting edge research (25 minutes each). Hands on will be also organized on i) numerical methods, ii) laboratory imaging, and iii) innovative field sensing and monitoring.

Every attendant will have the opportunity to present his current work at a poster session that will take place twice a week.

The school will gather about one hundred lecturers, organizers and participants of diverse communities such as hydrology, physics, geophysics, petroleum and nuclear engineering.

P. S.: The previous editions of the Cargèse Summer School on "Flow and Transport in Porous and Fractured media" had taken place in the summers of 2005 (www.fast.u-psud.fr/~cargese) and 2010 (osur.univ-rennes1.fr/cargese2010).
