We would like to invite you to attend the International Conference “Vortices and coherent structures: from ocean to microfluids” (Russia, Vladivostok, August 28-31, 2017). The conference will be held at the V.I. Il’ichev Pacific Oceanological Institute, Russian Academy of Sciences.
Scope and Objectives
The last few decades have shown that serious hopes and prospects for progress in understanding real turbulent vortex motions are essentially related to combined use of mathematical methods, computer simulation, laboratory and in situ experiments. These approaches have led to interesting results that allow us to study the processes from new perspectives. The main goal of this conference is to bring together leading scientists in this field, promote a cross-disciplinary interaction among mathematicians, physicists and oceanographers and an exchange of views and experience, propose new avenues for research in the future. The conference will focus on observational, theoretical and applied aspects of evolution of various flows and coherent structures in fluids. These include different theoretical and observational aspects of study of jets, eddies, vortices and other coherent structures in the ocean and atmosphere. Much attention will be given to the studies of nonlinear regular and chaotic regimes of vortex interactions, advective and convective motions.
