The structured integrators workshops are an informal series of annual meetings that aim to bring together researchers in mathematics, computer science, physical sciences, and engineering, who are interested in the broad area of numerical methods that preserve the underlying structure of the governing differential equations.

Many differential equations of interest in the physical sciences and engineering exhibit geometric properties that are preserved by the dynamics, and there has been recent interest in developing numerical schemes that preserve as many of these geometric invariants as possible.

Such methods are of particular interest for problems that can be described by geometric mechanics, wherein the preservation of physical invariants such as the energy, momentum, and symplectic form can be important when simulating long-time dynamics of such systems.
