The proposed minisymposium will cover both the theory and application of unstructured 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 methods, spectral difference methods, spectral volume methods, and flux reconstruction methods. We would particularly encourage presentations that address issues currently inhibiting the adoption of unstructured high-order schemes amongst a wider scientific community. These issues include a lack of efficient time integration schemes (for use with high-order spatial discretizations), a lack of accurate and robust shock capturing algorithms, difficulties generating high-order curved element meshes, and the overall complexity (at various levels) of unstructured high-order spatial discretizations.
