Structure of the Conference

The meeting have consisted of invited lectures by international experts on a broad range of phenomena, where the unsteady turbulent processes occur, contributed talks and poster presentations by participants, tutorials, and round tables discussions.
All sessions have been run sequentially.

I.   Invited lectures and contributed talks on

  • Turbulence: invariant and scaling, spectral properties, scalar transports
  • Turbulent mixingunsteady and multiphase flows, inhomogeneous, anisotropic non-local dynamics
  • High energy density physics: light-material interaction, Z-pinches, laser-driven, heavy-ino and magnetic fusion
  • Plasmas:  coupled plasmas, anomalous resistance, ionosphere
  • Astrophysics: supernovae, interstellar medium, star formation, stellar interiors, early Universe, cosmic-microwave background
  • Magneto-hydrodynamics: magneto-convection, magneto-rotational instability, accretion disks, dynamo
  • Geophysics: turbulent convection under stratification, rotation, anisotropy
  • Physics of Atmosphere: enviromental fluid dynamics, forecasting
  • Wall-bounded flowsstructure and fundamentals, unsteady boundary layers, supersonic flows
  • Combustion: dynamics of flames and fires, blast waves and explosions
  • Material science: properties of materials high strain rates, dynamics at nano- and micro-scales
  • Interfacial dynamicsRayleigh-Taylor, Kelvin-Helmholtz and Richtmyer-Meshkov he instabilities of 
  • Mathematical aspects of multi-scale dynamics: vortex dynamics, singularities, discontinuities, asymptotic dynamics, weak solutions, well- and ill-posedness
  • Advanced numerical simulations: continuous DNS/LES/RANS, Molecular dynamics, Monte-Carlo, predictive modeling
