Subject: Developments in Experimental Pattern Formation (8 - 12 August
Date: Tue, 03 May 2005 14:58:48 +0100
** Extended Deadline - 31 May 2005 **

Isaac Newton Institute for Mathematical Sciences, Cambridge, UK

Developments in Experimental Pattern Formation
(8 - 12 August 2005)

Supported by the European Commission, Sixth Framework Programme ­
Marie Curie Conferences and Training Courses - MSCF-CT-2004-516558

In association with the Newton Institute programme entitled
Pattern Formation in Large Domains (1 August to 23 December 2005)

Organisers:   Robert Ecke (Los Alamos), Alastair Rucklidge (Leeds) and
Harry Swinney (Austin, Texas)

Theme of Conference:   Patterns are observed in a wide variety of natural
systems, including animal coat markings, cloud formations and sand dune
ripples. They can also be studied in laboratory experiments, such as
thermal convection in a layer of fluid heated from below, nonlinear optics,
chemical reactions, surface catalysis, and the Faraday experiment of a
vertically vibrating layer of fluid or sand. Remarkably, it turns out that
these different systems generate very similar patterns. Advances in
experimental techniques and computing power have enabled attention to be
focussed on larger domains.  Unexpectedly, this has led to the
identification of new kinds of spatially extended structures (for example
‘spiral defect chaos’ and ‘quasipatterns’) for which theoretical
understanding is very much lacking. The aim of this workshop is to bring
together experimentalists and theoreticians working on pattern formation,
particularly on patterns formed in large domains, with an emphasis on
examining key experimental results and discussing the interesting and
challenging unsolved problems.

Invited Speakers:   Guenter Ahlers (UCSB), Eberhard Bodenschatz*
(Gottingen/Cornell), Yves Couder (ENS, Paris), Stephan Fauve (ENS, Paris),
Jay Fineberg (Jerusalem), William Firth* (Strathclyde), Jerry Gollub
(Haverford), Sascha Hilgenfeldt (Northwestern), Herbert Levine (UCSD), Tom
Mullin (Manchester), Stephen Morris (Toronto), Hans-Georg Purwins
(Muenster), Stefania Residori (INLN, Nice), Michael Schatz (Atlanta,
Georgia), Victor Steinberg (Weizmann Institute), Paul Umbanhower
* To be confirmed

Location and Cost:  The Conference will take place at the Newton Institute
and accommodation for participants will be provided in single study
bedrooms with shared bathroom at Wolfson Court. The conference package,
costing 440GBP, includes accommodation, breakfast and dinner from dinner on
Sunday 7 August 2005 to breakfast on Saturday 13 August 2005, and lunch and
refreshments during the days that lectures take place.  Substantial
financial support is available for EU research students and post doctoral
researchers with fewer than ten years research experience.  Participants
who wish to attend but do not require the Conference Package will be
charged a registration fee of 35GBP.  Self-supporting participants are very
welcome to apply.
