Vorticity on Different Scales: from the Cosmological to the Microscopic

Vorticity on Different Scales is a half-day meeting to be held at the Royal Astronomical Society, Burlington House on Thursday 14th July from 1pm. The aim of this meeting is to encourage discussion between scientists from different disciplines studying vorticity in different settings. To this end, there will be invited talks on cosmology, superfluids in neutron stars, planetary astronomy and cold atomic physics. After these talks there will be a mini-workshop and discussion.

The programme will include the following talks:

  1. Karim Malik: Vorticity in the early universe
  2. Nils Andersson: Vorticity in relativistic hydrodynamics
  3. James Cho: Vorticity in planetary flows
  4. Carlo Barenghi: Vortices in rotating superfluids: neutron stars in the laboratory?
Abstracts of the talks are available here.

Attendance at the meeting will be free, and there will be limited travel support for young researchers based outside London. Participants are encouraged to bring along posters on their vorticity research and related topics which will be displayed during the meeting and will invite discussion during the workshop.

If you are interested in attending, please email the organisers (addresses below) so we have an idea of the numbers of participants to expect and can organise catering. Since the room capacity is limited, early acknowledgement of attendance is encouraged. Please state in your email if you require travel support, and if you plan on bringing a poster. This meeting is sponsored by the IoP gravitational physics group, and by the Astronomy Unit, QMUL.

A list of registered participants can be found here, and some photos of the meeting are available here.
