Complex Fluids and Flows in Industry and Nature

Workshop information

Models of fluid flows in natural and industrial settings are often significantly complicated by details such as the confining geometry, varying material behaviour such as a non-Newtonian rheology, the presence of interfaces and multiple phases. Due to the additional complexity in studying such fluids, applied mathematics and computation plays a key role in research and in practical application of solutions to the many unsolved flow problems. ICIAM brings together the world's leading applied mathematicians, and is scheduled to be held in Vancouver in July 2011. This is an opportunity to bring together a select group of international researchers in this area, with a strong mathematical focus, to both advance research and expose the wider mathematics community to the joy of these exciting problems.
