Setptember 16-19, 2024:: 13th pamir International Conference on Fundamental and Applied MHD

Call for Papers: PAMIR_2024

Organized by the EuMHD society in collaboration with the CEA CADARACHE, INP GRENOBLE, UGA, CNRS, and University of CAGLIARI, the 13th pamir International Conference on Fundamental and Applied MHD will be held on September 16-19, 2024 at Miléade village club Carry-le-Rouet. This event, the first edition of which was held in 1991, returns to its origin, especially by proposing the visit oriented toward the fusion and fission reactors and dedicated research facilities (ITER, PAPIRUS…) at CEA Cadarache. Presentations will be given equally in oral and poster form. Selected papers will be published in the journal MagnetoHydroDynamics. The organizers aim to facilitate access at the Conference to the young scientists, students, and engineers and to promote close collaboration within the MHD  community, with particular attention between public and private institutions. A summer school will be also proposed on the topics of energy. General information will be regularly posted on the website of the MHD society (

17-19 May 2023:: UK MHD Meeting 2023 (Leeds)

The national UK MHD (magnetohydrodynamics) meeting has been the (almost) annual gathering discussing the latest results, challenges and opportunities in astrophysical (exoplanets, solar and stellar atmospheres and interiors, astrophysical discs, galaxies), geophysical (deep interiors of Earth and other planets) and laboratory MHD (casting, liquid metal batteries, etc). Sessions will address key research topics investigated by the UK MHD community, and priority will be given to young researchers to present their work. With senior participants from across the country (as well as some international participants), poster presentations, and informal discussions, this three-day meeting will provide attendees with the opportunity to learn about the latest research carried out in various research groups across the UK.

Abstract Submission Deadline (21st April 2023)

If you would like to submit an abstract for a talk or poster presentation, please fill in and submit the form here. The deadline for abstract submissions is Friday 21st April 2023 (end of day). We expect to announce the programme during the first week in May.

We will prioritise giving talks to junior researchers, but anyone interested is very welcome to submit an abstract for an oral or poster presentation.

There will be a prize for the best student talk and poster.

4-8 September 2023:: 14th International Conference on Computational Heat and Mass Transfer (ICCHMT2023)

The ICCHMT conference series, which is being periodically held since 1999 has the heat and mass transfer processes in focus. This fundamental discipline is obviously the backbone of a wide range of engineering applications, especially in the area of energy/thermal/process engineering, and has an even wider reaching scope including the environmental as well as biological processes.​

With today’s urgent needs on the efficient use of energy resources, coupled with environmental concerns, the importance of the topic becomes even more obvious. Nanotechnology and biomedical applications are examples of recently growing fields pertaining to heat and mass transfer.​

The conference addresses specifically the research, development and application of the computational methods, without, however, excluding experimental and theoretical approaches, especially as means of validation and inspiration. The highly multifaceted field that can include multi-phase phenomenon and chemical reactions is correspondingly demanding for the computational methods. The latter can cover a wide range of scales, extending form macroscopic-level to nano-level, using continuum or discrete mechanics, depending on the considered phenomenon and purpose. As various procedures such as FVM, FEM, FDM can be used to discretize the field equations of continuum, particle based methods utilizing different philosophies such as SPH or LBM can also be employed, which can model continuum as inspired by discrete mechanics or molecular dynamics, and, thus, build a bridge to meso-scales, whereas truly MD calculations can be performed at non-continuum scales.​

The conference series provides a platform for scientists and engineers to meet regularly in a relaxed environment to discuss new ideas and developments on the computational methods and their applications, as well as a good opportunity for young scientists and engineers to explore the art of the computational methods and future perspectives.

9th International Scientific Colloquium “Modelling for Materials Processing”

Riga (Latvia), September 18-19, 2023

24-26 July, 2023:: iTi 2023 — Conference on Turbulence X

Dear Colleagues,

we are pleased to invite you to attend the iTi Conference on Turbulence X in Bertinoro, Italy, July 24th – 26th, 2023. The iTi (interdisciplinary Turbulence initiative) is a series of conferences organized to focus on different aspects of both fundamental and applied turbulence research. Therefore, both engineers, physicists, and mathematicians working in the field of turbulence are invited to join the conference.

It is quite clear that the Covid pandemic is not over yet, still, most of countries are seeking to return to normality to some extent. Especially in the summer months, this seems possible because the incidence rates are comparatively low. Also, against the background of many requests from the turbulence community, we have decided to hold the 10th iTi during the summer again fully in person.

Topics comprise themes such as: Fundamentals, Modeling, Simulations (DNS and LES), Mathematical Methods, Coherent Structures/Vortices, Scaling Laws and Intermittency, Large Re flow experiments, Convection, Polymers and Scalars, Scalar Mixing and Particles, Turbulent Boundary Layers, Atmospheric flows and MHD.

In 2023 we will have the 10th anniversary of the iTi series and it will again take place in one of the most beautiful conference centers in Europe: The University Centre of Bertinoro. The Centre is located in three large historical and monumental buildings on the top of an ancient town. A video highlighting the wonderful atmosphere of the castle can be viewed here:

We are happy to confirm our invited speakers for the 10th iTi, namely Bettina Frohnapfel (KIT, Germany), Roberto Camussi (University Roma Tre, Italy), Hassan Nagib (IIT, USA), Martín Oblidago (Université Grenoble Alpes, France) and Dennice Gayme (Johns Hopkins University, USA).

Like in the previous editions the peer-reviewed proceedings will be published in the volume “Progress in Turbulence X” by Springer.

Dates and deadlines

  • Abstract submission: February, 15th 2023
  • Response/accepting the contribution: March, 5th 2023
  • Early registration for Conference: April, 10th 2023
  • Late registration for Conference: July, 24th 2023
  • Submission of full paper: August, 31st 2023

Essential information is already available on the conference website including items such as LaTeX and Word templates for the preparation of the abstracts.

Despite global inflation, we have kept prices consistently low.

We are very happy to welcome you in Bertinoro.

Best wishes
