Turbulence from angstroms to light years

Workshop on turbulence at ICTS in Bangalore, January 2018

The International Centre for Theoretical Sciences (ICTS) in Bangalore will host an exciting workshop on turbulence in January 2018 organised by Rama Govindarajan and Shravan Hanasoge. Talks will cover the spectrum from homogeneous isotropic turbulence to situations where shear breaks isotropy to turbulent convection and quantum turbulence. The workshop will be held around the Infosys-ICTS Subrahmanyan Chandrasekhar Lecture Series, to be delivered by Prof. Katepalli Sreenivasan (NYU).

The application deadline is 15 October 2017 (link below). Applications from early career researchers are particularly encouraged.

Dates: 20–25 January 2018
Location: ICTS, Bangalore, India
