The aim of the special issue is to offer a broad perspective of current research efforts on ALE methods. Once the fundamentals and basic issues of ALE are clear, more advanced topics are being addressed by researchers. In ALE fluid dynamics, for instance, a major concern is time-integration. Farhat and Geuzaine discuss robust time-integration schemes for the Navier-Stokes equations. Formaggia and Nobile analyze the stability of second-order scheme and apply it to wind engineering. Another critical issue, addessed by Margolin and Shashkov, is the mapping of variables after the mesh motion. In ALE fluid-structure interaction, the focues is on sophisticated approaches: Casadei and Potapov deal with nonconforming meshes: Hansbo, Hermansson and Svedberg, with space-time elements.
