International conference on turbulence

with a focus on MHD,  liquid metal, dynamo


Turbulence is one of the unsolved problems in classical physics. Recent powerful computer simulations and sophisticated experiments have fueled this field with interesting results.  In this conference we aim to bring together leading researchers of  India and abroad to present some of the recent exciting developments in this field.  In this meeting we will focus on MHD, liquid metal, and dynamo.  In addition there will be sessions on convective instabilities and turbulence, instabilities, fluid turbulence etc.

This is a focussed meeting on turbulence.  Interested faculty, postdocs, and Ph. D. students working in the area could contact the conveners for participation (Details in Information page).

IIT Kanpur is celebrating its Golden Jubilee in 2009-2010.  This conference is one of the activities being organized on this occasion.


Venue:  Indian Institute of Technology, Kanpur

Dates:    21-23 December 2009
