Anomalous Diffusion Workshop
01 Dec 2021 - 03 Dec 2021 • Barcelona, Catalunya, Spain
Abstract:
The workshop, which brings together a multidisciplinary community of scientists, includes oral presentations by the top-ranking participants of the AnDi Challenge and invited speakers. Since Albert Einstein provided a theoretical foundation for Robert Brown’s observation of the movement of particles within pollen grains suspended in water, significant deviations from the laws of Brownian motion have been uncovered in a variety of animate and inanimate systems, from biology to the stock market. Anomalous diffusion, as it has come to be called, is connected to non-equilibrium phenomena, flows of energy and information, and transport in living systems.

Identifying the physical origin of this behavior and calculating its exponent ? is crucial to understand the nature of the systems under observation. However, the measurement of these properties from the data analysis of trajectories is often limited especially for trajectories that are short, irregularly sampled or featuring mixed behaviors. In the last years, several methods have been proposed to quantify anomalous diffusion, going beyond the classical calculation of the mean squared displacement.

The AnDi Challenge aims at bringing together a multidisciplinary community of scientists working on this problem. The use of the same reference datasets will allow an unbiased assessment of the performance of published and unpublished methods for characterizing anomalous diffusion from single trajectories.

Jean-Morlet Chair whole semester on Nonlinear PDEs in Fluid Dynamics
01 Jan 2022 - 30 Jun 2022 • CIRM Luminy, Marseille, France
Abstract:
The field of nonlinear Partial Differential Equations (PDEs) in Fluid Dynamics has seen tremendous scientific activity in the last decade, due to the facts that the underlying governing equations have a very rich and complex structure and that many of these equations still lack basic understanding concerning global existence and uniqueness of smooth solutions. The PDEs modeling and describing fluid flows play an important role in various areas of mathematics, natural sciences and also engineering. This special semester at CIRM will focus on nonlinear PDEs arising in incompressible fluid dynamics, such as Euler- and Navier-Stokes equations, geophysical flows, liquid crystals and complex fluids, non-homogeneous fluids and critical spaces. The semester will feature an international conference, a large research school for young researchers, a thematic workshop, research in pairs events and a program of invitations open to early graduate researchers as well as more senior guests.

Workshop "Rigorous analysis of incompressible fluid models and turbulence"
14 Feb 2022 - 18 Feb 2022 • Newton Institute, United Kingdom
Organizer:
Isaac Newton Institute for Mathematical Sciences
Abstract:
The rigorous analysis of the Euler and Navier-Stokes equations (and other models of fluid dynamics) can contribute to our understanding of turbulence. Results on regularity often exclude physical singularities of particular types, and so can influence coarser-scale modelling. Progress on questions that appear at first purely mathematical, such as the Onsager Conjecture (minimal smoothness for conservation of energy in the Euler equations), can provide insights towards foundations of the classical theory of turbulence, namely the dissipation anomaly (finite energy dissipation in the limit of zero viscosity). Analysis of boundary layers is central to many asymptotic approaches to fluid flows, and key mathematical questions remain here too, closely related to convergence of Navier-Stokes to Euler flows.

NURETH 19: Lead the Flow! — 19th International Topical Meeting on Nuclear Reactor Thermal Hydraulics
06 Mar 2022 - 11 Mar 2022 • Brussels, Belgium
Organizer:
SCK CEN and the von Karman Institute, in collaboration with NRG and ANS
Abstract:
“Nuclear reactor thermal hydraulics isn’t about going-with-the-flow. It is about mastering the flow, guaranteeing, understanding and predicting it for the safe operation of existing nuclear power plants and the development of new nuclear technologies. The International Topical Meeting on Nuclear Reactor Thermal Hydraulics is one of the premier gatherings for experts in nuclear reactor thermal hydraulics and related topical areas. The meeting is held every two years and cycles through the North America, Europe and Asia. Can you already feel the positive energy? We do and we are ready to welcome you!”

Workshop "Modelling and analysis of turbulent transport, mixing and scaling"
07 Mar 2022 - 11 Mar 2022 • Newton Institute, United Kingdom
Organizer:
Isaac Newton Institute for Mathematical Sciences
Abstract:
Transport and mixing are among the most important properties of turbulent fluid flows. Indeed, movement of mechanical and thermal energy and material underlies the most basic dynamical phenomena in astrophysics, geophysics and the environment, as well as in biology and myriad industrial and engineering applications. Understanding (i) the fundamental physics underlying the dynamics of these processes and (ii) cutting edge mathematical approaches for their analysis is central to many active research fields. Topics include recent advances in irregular transport and geometric analysis, and developments and novel applications from optimization and control. The primary objective of this workshop is to bring together mathematical scientists working on theoretical and state of the art computational aspects of fluid dynamics focused on quantitative modelling and analysis of turbulent transport and mixing.

GK2022 Rennes — 26th International Symposium on Gas Kinetics and Related Phenomena
28 Aug 2022 - 01 Sep 2022 • Rennes, France
Organizer:
The Royal Society of Chemistry
Abstract:
The Symposium is organised under the auspices of the Gas Kinetics Group of the Faraday Division of the Royal Society of Chemistry. The Symposium has a long history, dating back to 1967. It has been held every two years, with host cities generally alternating between continental Europe and the English-speaking world, mainly the UK. The Royal Society of Chemistry’s prestigious Polanyi medal is traditionally presented at this Symposium. As the Symposium was cancelled in 2020 (it was due to be held at KIT in Karlsruhe, Germany), both the 2020 and the 2022 Polanyi medals will be awarded at the 2022 Symposium.
Topics:
The symposium provides an open forum for discussion of the latest experimental and theoretical research on a wide range of topics related to gas-phase chemical kinetics, including: combustion; reaction dynamics; atmospheric, interstellar and planetary chemistry; heterogeneous- and particle-chemistry.
