Upcoming External Event: 4th Workshop on Advances in CFD, LB and MD Modeling of Capillary Two-Phase Flows and Experimental Validation, 16-19 May 2019, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil (The Workshop precedes ICMF 2019)

A world-leading international Workshop on the latest advances in the computational modelling of the interfacial dynamics of capillary two-phase flow phenomena using Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD), Lattice Boltzmann (LB) and Molecular Dynamics (MD) methods. In addition, experimental two-phase flow visualization techniques will presented. The Workshop is now at its 4th edition, following the first two editions in 2016 and 2017 that took place at the EPFL in Lausanne, Switzerland, and the 2018 edition at Kobe University, Japan.

The international team of lecturers is as follows:

  • Prof. A. Tomiyama, S. Hosokawa and Prof. K. Hayashi (Kobe University),
  • Prof. J.R. Thome (University of Edinburgh),
  • Prof. G. Anjos and Prof. N. Mangiavacchi (State University of Rio de Janeiro),
  • Prof. P. Theodorakis (Polish Academy of Sciences) and
  • Dr. M. Magnini (Imperial College London).

Additional information can be found in the 2019 Workshop flyer

Workshop location and travel information

The Workshop will be held in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil; the exact location will be communicated soon. The end of the Workshop coincides with the beginning of the 10th International Conference on Multiphase Flow (ICMF 2019), which will take place in Rio de Janeiro on May 19th-24th, 2019. Further information about ICMF 2019 are available in the Event listed below in this page.

Workshop registration and inscription fee

The Workshop does not have any registration fee in order to promote the participation of students/researchers. When registering, participants will be invited to submit a brief personal overview of their research and interests in two-phase flow. As this is an advanced course, it is expected that participants already have a working knowledge of numerical fluid mechanics.

The registration deadline is April 1st, 2019. You are encouraged to register as soon as possible. A maximum number of 40 participants will be accepted.

The applicants will receive an email with the notification of their acceptance shortly after their registration.

Upcoming External Event: 3rd Workshop on Advances in CFD and LB Modeling of Interface Dynamics in Capillary Two-Phase Flows, Kobe (Japan), 8-12 Oct 2018.

This is an exceptionally good modelling workshop delivered by internationally acclaimed experts, running in its 3rd year.

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
