The purpose of the meeting is to bring together people working in
fluid dynamics and plasma physics on similar problems: turbulence,
the influence of coherent structures, anomalous transport. Special
emphasis will be devoted to discussions of:
i) Modelling of plasma and fluid turbulence: differences and
ii) The influence of material boundaries on the development of
turbulent flows and how to model these boundaries in numerical
iii) Anomalous transport, the influence of coherent structures on
this transport, and intermittence in the transport.
iv) Generation of shear flows and the question of shear flows as a
v) Comparison of numerical model solution with experiments.
In addition an overview of the present status of the fusion research
program will be presented.
The meeting will take an informal character and will encourage
discussions. The meeting is open for participants with background knowledge in
plasma and/or fluid dynamics and/or nonlinear dynamics in
