An Isaac Newton Institute Event

Prospects of High Performance Computing in Turbulence Research

Friday 26 September 2008

Isaac Newton Institute for Mathematical Sciences, Cambridge, UK

Organiser: Professor Yukio Kaneda (Nagoya University)

in association with the Newton Institute programme The Nature of High Reynolds Number Turbulence (26 August to 19 December 2008)


With recent dramatic developments in computer technology, the High Performance Computing (HPC) community has entered the realm of so-called peta-scale computing. This is expected to have far-reaching consequences for turbulence research. The purpose of this one-day meeting is to help the turbulence research community make the best use of this unprecedented development in computer power, and use it to improve our understanding of the nature of high Reynolds number turbulence. The meeting will feature invited lectures by international experts in computer science and HPC turbulence research.

Invited speakers:

Jimenez, J (Universidad Politecnica, Madrid), Yeung, PK (Gatech), Yokokawa, M (RIKEN) and Zacharia, T (Oak Ridge National Laboratory).


Anyone interested is welcome to attend. Please let Tracey Andrew at the Institute know by 19 September 2008 if you intend to come: telephone (01223) 760992; fax: (01223) 330508; e-mail:
