The proposed minisymposium will cover both the theory and application of high-order methods, with specific focus on their use in the field of computational fluid dynamics. Numerical schemes falling within the remit of the minisymposium include (but are not limited to) finite volume (FV) type essentially non-oscillatory (ENO) methods, FV type weighed ENO methods, k-exact methods, high-order continuous/discontinuous Galerkin finite element (FE) methods, spectral difference methods and spectral volume methods. We would particularly encourage presentations that
address current issues inhibiting the adoption of unstructured high-order schemes amongst a wider scientific community and industry. These issues include a lack of efficient time integration schemes (that can be used with high-order spatial discretizations), a lack of accurate and robust shock capturing algorithms, and the difficulties associated with generating high-order curved element meshes.
