Place: Buenos Aires, Argentina

Dates: August 11th-16th, 2008

Scientific rationale:
Fluid dynamics is a broad and interdisciplinary field, with
applications that touch almost every aspect of our daily lives.
Because of the complexity of the subject and its many applications,
it is also challenging and exciting. The aim of this School is to
present an introduction to its principles, and to discuss some of
its applications in atmospheric, geophysical, astrophysical, and
laboratory flows. Recent developments in each area will also be
discussed, to find common interests and problems, and to encourage
young scientists and students to go into this exciting field of
The School is intended primarily for graduate students of physics
and other disciplines related to the field of fluid dynamics,
although advanced undergrad students and postdocs are also
encouraged to participate. A satellite workshop on «New Perspectives
in Turbulence» will be held on the same dates. Time will be
available for discussions of posters and for short conferences.
