We are pleased to announce the Second International
Conference and Advanced School "Turbulent Mixing and
The TMB-2009 will be held at the International Center for
Theoretical Physics, Trieste, Italy, on 26 July - 07 August
http://www.ictp.it/~tmb (primary address at the ICTP) and
It will be hosted by the Centre as regular ICTP activity
You, your colleagues and students are kindly invited to
participate in this event.
The goals of the International Conference "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 (please, visit
http://users.ictp.it/~tmb/main/about.html for more details).
The Conference and the School will provide the opportunity
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
telecommunications, and to have their attention focused on
the long-standing formidable task of non-equilibrium
turbulent processes (see
http://users.ictp.it/~tmb/main/themes.html for outline of
The Conference and the School will feature invited lectures
and tutorials by international experts on a wide scope of
Themes of the TMB-2009, contributed talks and poster
presentations by the participants, tutorials, round tables
and open discussions. The tutorials for graduate and
professional education will cover the novel experimental
diagnostic techniques in fluids and plasmas, advanced
theoretical and numerical methods, the modern approaches in
data assimilation and analysis, and the state-of-the-art
cyber-enabled methodologies for data annotation and
information on Structure of the Activity).
To maintain the wide scope and the standards of quality, the
Organizing Committee has invited leading experts to give
lectures and tutorials representing the Themes of the
TMB-2009. The Organizing Committee welcomes high quality
contributions in a broad variety of the Research Topics
listed at http://users.ictp.it/~tmb/main/structure.html.
Based on the merit and novelty, some of the regular
submissions will be chosen as invited talks.
The participants are invited to submit an abstract to
email@example.com by 30 March 2009. The abstract format is
described online at
Upon consideration of the contributed presentations of
TMB-2009 by the members of the Scientific Advisory
Committee, the Award "Turbulent Mixing and Beyond for Youth"
will be issued to an eligible young scientist. The criteria
of eligibility and selection are described at
The experts, interested in giving tutorials for graduate and
professional education on the Topics of the Advanced School,
are suggested to contact the Organizing Committee and the
chairperson of the activity regarding their lectures via
email firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com.
The Conference presentations will be posted on-line and will
be video-recorded using the ICTP Eya system. The Proceedings
of the Conference will be published as a topical issue of
the Physica Scripta. The invited lectures and tutorials of
the First and Second International Conferences "Turbulent
Mixing and Beyond" will be published in a book. The
information on Proceedings and Publications of TMB-2009 can
be found at http://users.ictp.it/~tmb/main/proceed.html.
The Conference and the School are sponsored by several
agencies and organizations in the USA, Europe and Japan. A
registration fee is not required for the participants of the
TMB-2009. Some financial support will be available for
graduate students and researchers, who would otherwise be
unable to attend the Conference. The formal registration is
required for all the participants of the Conference and the
School, and the registration process is outlined at
The Conference will be held at the Abdus Salam International
Center for Theoretical Physics, Trieste, Italy. Trieste is a
beautiful historic city on the coast of the Adriatic Sea,
close to Venice, Ljubljana, Milan, Munich, Rome, and other
major cities of the Central Europe, see
http://users.ictp.it/~tmb/main/links.html for details.
For the registered participants of the TMB-2009, the
Conference and the School administration can assist with
inexpensive and discount travel options to and from Trieste,
Suitable accommodation will be available at the ICTP campus
and in nearby hotels at special discount and group rates.
The accommodation of all the registered participants of the
TMB-2009 will be coordinated by the Housing Office at the
ICTP, see http://users.ictp.it/~tmb/main/accom.html.
For those participants, who are planning to attend the
satellite meetings in Europe, UK, Russia or Japan shortly
before or after the TMB-2009, the Conference Administration
can also assist, upon request, in finding appropriate travel
arrangements and extended accommodation in Trieste.
The International Conference and the School "Turbulent
Mixing and Beyond" is organized to advance knowledge of the
fundamental aspects of the generic problem of
non-equilibrium turbulent processes and to have an impact on
predictive modeling capabilities, physical description and,
ultimately, control of these complex processes.
