International Conference and Advanced School "Turbulent Mixing and Beyond", 27 July - 07 Aug 2009, ICTP, Trieste, Italy

Posted By: International Conference and Advanced School "Turbulent Mixing and Beyond"
Date:Thu, 26 Mar 2009, 7:29 p.m.

Dear Colleagues,

We are pleased to announce the Second International Conference and Advanced School "Turbulent Mixing and Beyond," TMB-2009.

The TMB-2009 will be held at the International Center for Theoretical Physics, Trieste, Italy, on 26 July - 07 August 2009: (primary address at the ICTP) and (mirror site in the US). It will be hosted by the Centre as regular ICTP activity and (TMB-2009 poster)

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 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 for outline of Themes).

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 processing (see for 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 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 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 members of the Organizing Committee and the chairperson of the activity regarding their lectures via email and

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

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 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, see 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

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.
