Main information

The conference will be held in the international conference centre of ETH domain located in the South of Switzerland, on the fascinating hill above Ascona: Monte Verità. This workshop is the sequel of a former workshop held at Banff, Alberta, Canada and hosted by the Pacific Institute of Mathematical Sciences (22-27 October 2005).

More information: take a look at the official webpage (calendar) or this page.


The overall goal of the workshop is to promote interactions between people from different communities. It is guessed that major cross-institutional research advances can be achieved in the general domain of plastic fluids, that would not be addressed without the formation of this interacting group.

Scientific programme

The workshop will span different topics:

This year, emphasis is given to geophysical applications.
