Nordita, Stockholm, Sweden
The question of the dynamics of particles in flows has a wide range of applications. Examples are the dispersion of pollutants in the atmosphere, fuel injection in a car engine, rain formation in clouds, and planet formation in circumstellar accretion disks. These examples have in common that the fundamental processes (collisions, coalescence, or breakup of particles) are determined by similar microscopic equations. The aim of this scientific program is to bring together experimentalists and theorists from different communities (represented by the two European COST actions MP0806 “Particles in turbulence” and FP1005 “Fibre suspension flow modelling”) to collaborate on the fundamentals and applications of the dynamics of particles in flows. The ambition is to catalyse collaborations between physics and engineering.
Please refer to the links in the menu on the left hand side of this page for the schedule of the program. During the second week of the program, 11-13 June, there will be a Conference on Dynamics of Particles in Flows, with leading scientists in the field reporting on their latest results.
If you want to apply for participation in the program, please fill in the application form. You will be informed by the organizers shortly after the application deadline whether your application has been approved. Due to space restrictions, the total number of participants is strictly limited. (Invited speakers are of course automatically approved, but need to register anyway.)
Application deadline: 28 February 2014
A minimum stay of one working week is required and we encourage participants to stay for a period of at least two weeks.
There is no registration fee.
There are a limited number of travel grants available for participants in the program. If you are interested in such a grant, please mark the corresponding field in the application form, and indicate an estimation of your expected travel expenses. Since only a limited number of grants is available, decision concerning the grants will be made on a case-by-case basis and you will be notified shortly after the application deadline.
Nordita provides a limited number of rooms in the Stockholm apartment hotel BizApartments free of charge for accepted program participants.
