The 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) schemes, 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. Furthermore, in the context of high-fidelity scale-resolving simulations (LES/DNS), we would welcome presentations that address means of robustly incorporating multi-physics capabilities into the aforementioned schemes; for instance two- and multi-phase flow capabilities, turbulent combustion, and conjugate heat transfer. Also of interest are presentations that address the issue of visualizing and post-processing of large amounts of data; for instance, in-situ visualization techniques and methods for automatic extraction of relevant flow features.
