Goals and Objectives

The goals of the program 'Turbulent Mixing and Beyond' are to expose the generic problem of Non-equilibrium Turbulent Processes to a wide scientific community, to promote the development of new ideas in tackling the fundamental aspects of the problem, to assist in application of novel approaches in a broad range of phenomena, where the turbulent processes occur, and to have a potential impact on technology.

'Turbulent Mixing and Beyond' is the program established for scientists by scientists. It is merit-based, and is shaped by requirements of academic credentials, novelty and information quality.

The program was founded in 2007 with the support of international scientific community and of the US National Science Foundation, the US Air Force Office of the Scientific Research and its European Office for Research and Development in the UK, the Commissariat l'Energie Atomique in France, the UNESCO-IAEA International Centre for Theoretical Physics in Italy, the US Department of Energy and the Department of Energy National Laboratories, the Institute for Laser Engineering in Japan, and the University of Chicago in USA.

The International Conference 'Turbulent Mixing and Beyond' provides opportunities to bring together researchers from the areas, which include but are not limited to fluid dynamics, plasmas, high energy density physics, astrophysics, material science, combustion, atmospheric and earth sciences, nonlinear and statistical physics, applied mathematics, probability and statistics, data processing and computations, optics and communications, and to have their attention focused on the long-standing formidable task of non-equilibrium turbulent processes.

Leading experts and researchers at advanced and early stages of their carriers from academia, national laboratories, corporations and industry, as well as graduate students from developed and developing countries are invited to participate.

At the First and Second International Conferences 'Turbulent Mixing and Beyond' it was found that: (i) TMB-related problems have in common a set of outstanding research issues. (ii) Their solution has a potential to significantly advance a variety of disciplines in science, technology and mathematics. (iii) TMB participants conduct highly innovative research and their interactions strengthen the community might.

Non-equilibrium turbulent processes is the intellectually rich and highly fascinating problem, whose exploration may have a transformative impact on our understanding of a wide variety of physical phenomena, from atomistic to astrophysical scales, on fundamental principles of mathematical modeling of the dynamics of continuous media and non-equilibrium kinetics, and on the technology development in fusion, nano-electronics, telecommunications, and aeronautics.

Based on the success of TMB-2007 and TMB-2009 and on the recommendations of TMB Round Tables and responding the inquiry of the community, the Third International Conference 'Turbulent Mixing and Beyond,' TMB-2011, has been organized at the International Centre for Theoretical Physics.

The following objectives have been achieved at TMB-2011:
  • Focus the integration of theory, experiments, large-scale numerical simulations and state-of-the-art technologies on exploration of physical mechanisms of non-equilibrium dynamics, from atomistic to macro-scales in both high and low energy density regimes.
  • Foster the application of innovative approaches for tackling the fundamental aspects of turbulent mixing problems and for understanding and further extending the range of applicability of canonical considerations.
  • Encourage the development of new approaches and stimulate the application of advanced data analysis techniques for unified characterization of experimental and  numerical data sets, for estimation of their quality and information capacity, and for transforming data to knowledge.
  • Further develop the Turbulent Mixing and Beyond Community via organizing a positive and constructive collaborative environment, maintaining the quality of information flux in the community, and sharing research methodologies, tools, and data among the community members.
The program "Turbulent Mixing and Beyond" is organized to advance knowledge of the fundamental aspects of the generic problem of non-equilibrium turbulent processes and will potentially have an impact on predictive modeling capabilities, physical description and, ultimately, control of these complex processes.
