In April 2021, the School of Physics of Les Houches launched "Oxy-jeunes", a program aiming at organizing short stays, in an extra-ordinary setting, so that PhD and post-doctoral students can meet each other to exchange about their work or difficulties encountered during the pandemic.
Turbulent flows, like planetary atmospheres, oceans, or flow around an airfoil or a wind turbine, undergo strong fluctuations. Sometimes, the system may even undergo abrupt transitions between entirely different flow configurations. Such transitions seem to occur at random times, in an unpredictable manner.
The Bronze Medal is awarded to early work of researchers who are specialists in their field. This distinction represents an encouragement from the CNRS to pursue research that is well underway and already fruitful.
The prestigious Simons Foundation of New York has announced funding for an international project to revisit the fundamental problems of fluid turbulence using statistical mechanics.
Vance Bergeron, Ane Aanesland, Livio de Luca, and Orphée Cugat are the 2019 CNRS Innovation Medallists. Since 2011, this CNRS prize has rewarded researchers for their work in the technological, therapeutic, economic, and social fields.
The Simons Foundation announced on June 4, 2019 the establishment of the Simons Collaboration on Wave Turbulence, directed by Jalal Shatah from NYU assisted by Laure Saint-Raymond from ENS de Lyon and Nicolas Mordant from UGA.
Lucile Savary's Prize Lecture and Award Ceremony will be held in during the 27th International Conference on Statistical Physics – StatPhys 27 – from July 8 to July 12, 2019 in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
