Join organizers: Blakesley Burkhart, Mike Shelley and David Spergel in an interactive workshop held at the Flatiron Institute in New York City December 2nd – 6th entitled, Universality: Turbulence Across Vast Scales.
The goal of the workshop is to bring together experts in turbulence from the perspectives of astrophysics, plasma physics, biology, mathematics, atmospheric sciences, and experimental design. We would like to promote an exchange of ideas, tools, and knowledge between different fields working on the still unsolved turbulence problem. The conference will include a mix of talks/lectures along with breakout sessions and discussion time.
In addition to cutting-edge research in the listed areas, we will focus the meeting around themes common to all fields:
1) Statistical algorithms used in different fields to understand turbulence scaling laws
2) How machine learning, computer vision, neural networks are impacting the field of turbulence.
3) Insights from turbulence-like phenomenology applied to different areas of science.
Please register for the workshop and indicate if you would be interested to give a talk or a poster.
There is no workshop registration fee and lunch/breaks are generously provided by the Flatiron Institute, Centers for Computational Biology and Astrophysics; which, are hosting the workshop. We will reserve the date of December 6th for free collaboration time.
Meanwhile please feel free to send us questions regarding the workshop.
