iTi 2021 | February 25th-26th, 2021

Latest News

The second wave of the pandemic, at least in Europe, has made it essential for us to rethink our plans thoroughly.

We did not want to postpone iTi again or even cancel it completely, because our interest and need to engage in an intensive scientific exchange with you, the turbulence community and many also friends, even in these complicated times was just too strong.

Against this background we announce the following setting of the iTi 2020 / 21. The conference will take place as a pure online event, i.e. we will let the communication take place via ZOOM and Discord, but we will shorten the iTi to two days (February 25th-26th, 2021).

All invited speakers have renewed their acceptance – we are looking forward to exciting presentations.

Besides the invited speakers we are planning further livestream lectures by regular participants. This will be supplemented by on-demand video presentations, which will be uploaded to an appropriate server before the iTi. All participants can watch these on-demand videos before the conference.

General Information

The iTi (interdisciplinary Turbulence initiative) is a series of conferences organized in order to focus on different aspects of both fundamental and applied turbulence research. Therefore, both engineers and physicists working in the field of turbulence are invited to join the conference. Topics comprise themes such as:

Fundamentals, Modelling, Simulations (DNS and LES), Mathematical Methods, Coherent structures/Vortices, Scaling Laws and Intermittency, Large Re flows experiments, Convection, Polymers and Scalars, Scalar Mixing and Particles, Turbulent Boundary Layers, Atmospheric flows and MHD to name only a few.
