Format and Topics

 The school is directed to PhD and Post-Doc students and researchers who wish to become acquainted with recent developments and promising methods in the mathematical theory of fluid dynamics. Four courses will be delivered by leading experts in the field. The courses will be organized in such a way that not experts in the field will be able to understand the directions of the actual research. The talks will add specific information on recent results. Each main lecturers will give a series of six lectures, each 60 minutes long.

Short Communications

The participants of the conference can present their results in a form of a (very) short communication. We expect that the length of these communications will be (according to their number) set to 10-15 minutes including discussion. The participants can use overhead projector or data projector (beamer), which will be available at the place. There will be a laptop connected to the beamer, running on Windows, with Power Point, ps (Ghostscript) and pdf (Adobe Acrobat) viewers, CD reader, and USB. You can also bring along your own laptop. Participants interested in giving a short talk are invited to fill in the registration form.


For registering in the conference please complete and submit our registration form to the Secretary of CIRM.

No registration fee will be charged.

Some grants covering the lodging for the participation in the workshop will be available. People interested in having such a support should send an application form together with a short curriculum to the Secretary of CIRM. Due to the limited number of rooms at our disposal, supported young participants are expected to share a double bedroom.


Deadline for registration: April 30, 2010.
