Aim & Description

The goal of the workshop is to bring together scientists working in the fundamental physics of particle transport in turbulence and related phenomena. The idea is to focus on a short but intense period (the workshop is organized over 3 full days) and to bring together scientists working on: experimental, numerical, theoretical as well as applied aspects.

The format is designed to allow exchange amongst scientists with different interests (plenary meetings, time for individual discussions amongst participants) as well as to stimulate technical discussions and collaborations (the four parallel working group, WGs, meetings). Exchange will further be stimulated by assembly, before the workshop, a list of topics and key themes to be discussed. During this workshop, this list will then be discussed from the point of view of experiments, numerical simulation, theory and applications.


There will be few keynote plenary lectures (including time for discussion) in order to provide an update on the state-of-the-art and on the outstanding open issues for each of the WGs themes. These lectures are expected to be tutorial-like and to be accessible to all attendees. The workshop is then composed by several slots during which the four WGs will convene in parallel sessions. Slots where WGs convene in a joint session are also scheduled and are believed to be the distinguish feature of this LC workshop. Large time is left for individual interaction amongst participants. On the last day there will be a discussion on what has been achieved during the week and outlook for the future activities, exchanges and challenges. Particular care will be devoted in choosing the chair for this last session. The scientific presentations will be made available on the MP0806 website. We plan to write a short document highlighting the research directions and collaboration possibilities that emerged during the workshop.
