DisCoVor 2022

Following on the success of the Remote Colloquium on Vortex Dominated Flows (ReCoVor), we are pleased to announce that the first Direct In-person Colloquium on Vortex Dominated Flows (DisCoVor) will be held in Villars-sur-Ollon in Switzerland from May 17-20, 2022.

As suggested by the name, the colloquium is focused on the flow-physics of unsteady, vortex dominated flows. If the flow is unsteady and it involves multiple interacting vortices that induce important effects on the flow or the system under consideration, then the research belongs in this colloquium. Experimental, computational and/or analytical contributions are all welcome.

Over the course of each of the 4 days, we plan to have one oral presentation session in the morning to present your latest work on vortex dominated flows. We will have additional opportunities for your group to present your work during the poster sessions that are organised throughout the event. The afternoons will be reserved for informal discussions, hikes, a visit to EPFL, and other things we were deprived of for the past 1.5 years.

Important dates:

  • Abstract submission open: December 1, 2021
  • Abstract submission deadline:  January 31, 2022, 5PM CET
  • Notification of abstract acceptance: February 24, 2022
  • Registration open: April 1 – April 30, 2022
  • Colloquium: May 17 – May 20, 2022

The conference is made possible thanks to sponsoring by the Swiss National Science Foundation (grant number IZSEZ0_210263)  and the European Office of Aerospace Research & Development (EOARD) of the Air Force Office of Scientific Research (AFOSR).
