This should be fun. I went to a winter school there years ago and it is a
beautiful setting. We even had a day to ski and a day to snowshoe!

Dear Colleagues,

We would like to announce the international conference,
*Environmental fluid dynamics: confronting grand challenges*
that will be held in Les Houches, France from 20-25 January 2019.

** Please distribute widely **

Environmental fluid dynamics underlies a wealth of natural, industrial and,
by extension, societal challenges. In the coming decade, as we strive
a more sustainable planet, there are a wide range of ‘grand challenge’
that need to be tackled, ranging from fundamental advances in understanding
and modeling of stratified turbulence and consequent mixing, to applied
of pollution transport in the ocean, atmosphere and urban environments.
The objective of the event is to gather leading figures in the field of
fluid dynamics to produce a road map for the scientific community. The
will balance the participation of senior and junior faculty, postdocs and
students, to generate an environment that fosters research ideas and

The list of topics covered at the conference is Stratified flow, Multiphase
Ocean transport, Atmospheric and Urban transport and Predictability.
