    September 6-10, 2015, Exeter, UK
    ———————————————

     The 35th Dynamics Days Europe will be held from September 6-10, 2015 at  the University of Exeter. Dynamics Days Europe is a major international  conference with a broad interdisciplinary focus on nonlinear dynamics in  mathematics, biology, chemistry, physics, and engineering.
     
     Pre-registration and abstract submission for contributions is now open on http://store.exeter.ac.uk/…

     Further details are available on
    http://ex.ac.uk/dd2015
     
     Deadlines:

    •  01 March 2015 Deadline for submission of minisymposium proposals
    •  31 May 2015   Deadline for early registration

    The remit of Dynamics Days includes research in all areas of dynamical  systems and nonlinear science from the perspectives of modelling,  mathematical foundations, applications, and experiment.
     
    Contributions are invited in all areas of theoretical and applied  dynamics including: active-matter physics, astrophysics, biophysics,  condensed matter, climate science, elastic media, fluid dynamics,  granular materials, magnetohydrodynamics, microfluidics, networks,  neural dynamics, non-equilibrium statistical physics, pattern formation,
    percolation, plasma physics, quantum chaos, soft matter, stochastic  processes, turbulence, and weather modelling.
     
    The program will include plenary talks, minisymposia, contributed  talks, and posters. Minisymposia are sessions of invited talks that  centre around a specific topic or theme.

    We invite those who are interested to organize a minisymposium to  contact the local organizing committee by email. For this and any other  enquiries please contact  dd2015@emps.ex.ac.uk

    (from Thomas Boeck, TU Ilmenau, Germany)

    First Announcement

    16th MHD-Days

    TU Ilmenau, December 7-9, 2015

    Supported by Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft in the framework of the Research Training Group „Lorentz force velocimetry and Lorentz force eddy current testing“
    ————————————————————————

    The 16th MHD-Days will be organized at TU Ilmenau. They will take place from Monday noon, December 7 to Wednesday afternoon, December 9, 2015.

    As in previous MHD-Days, the 16th MHD-Days will focus both on geo- and astrophysical aspects as well as on industrial applications of MHD.

    The meeting will also be used to give an overview of the ongoing activities in the Research Training Group on flow measurement in liquid metals and electrolytes using contactless Lorentz force velocimetry and on non-destructive material inspection using Lorentz force eddy current testing. This Research Training Group at TU Ilmenau is supported by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft.

    Undergraduate and PhD students are particularly encouraged to attend the MHD-Days. The conference language is English. Further information will be posted on the web page

    www.tu-ilmenau.de/mhddays2015

    in the near future. Questions related to organizational aspects should be addressed to:

    mhd(at)tu-ilmenau.de

    The organizing committee would appreciate a wide circulation of this announcement.

  9. NEXT PAMIR CONFERENCE
  10. —————————–
    (from Augusto Montisci, Cagliari, France)

    The next PAMIR conference will be organized by the University of Cagliari, Sardinia Italy, from June 20 to June 24, 2016.

    The conference will take place in Cagliari and will regroup if possible in the same location, conference rooms and accommodation. The topics will be Basic MHD, Space Technologies, Ferrofluids, Applied MHD for Materials, Liquid metal technologies for coolant applications, MHD energy conversion. In parallel with the conference, a summer school will be also proposed with the topics centered on MHD for Space Applications.

    The detail of the organization, deadlines, and main topics, both for conference and summer school, will be included in the next Hydromag letter.

  11. POSTDOC POSITION AT UNIVERSITÉ LIBRE DE BRUXELLES
  12. —————————–
    (from Bernard Knaepen, Bussels, Belguim)

    Title: Modelling of particle acceleration in astrophysical plasmas

    A postdoctoral position is available at the Université Libre de Bruxelles (Fluid and Plasma Dynamics research unit, Prof. B. Knaepen) to work on the research programme CHARM (Contemporary physical challenges in Heliospheric and AstRophysical Models). CHARM (http://wis.kuleuven.be/CHARM/) is a collaborative 5 year research programme involving five belgian research teams and two international partners.

    The postdoctoral fellow will participate in a research program on the study and modeling of particle acceleration in MHD turbulent plasmas such as the solar wind, with an emphasis on the role of turbulent structures on the rate of acceleration/transport.

    If you are wondering what BIFD is:
     —————————————————-
    The Sixth International Symposium on Bifurcations and Instabilities in Fluid Dynamics (BIFD 2015) will take place on 15-17 July 2015 at the Ecole Superieure de Physique et de Chimie Industrielle (ESPCI) in the Latin Quarter of Paris, France.

    Its scope includes the classical hydrodynamic instabilities (Taylor-Couette, Rayleigh-Benard, Kelvin-Helmholtz, Benard-Marangoni, Rayleigh-Taylor, Faraday) and related topics such as flow in thin films, transition to turbulence, and magnetohydrodynamics as well as industrial, environmental and biomedical applications.
