6th Symposium on
Global Flow Instability and Control

September 28 - October 2, 2015

Creta Maris, Hersonissos, Crete, Greece 

The Global Flow Instability and Control series of symposia, established in 2001, has created a world-class forum for presentation and discussion of results and open issues in global flow instability and control. This is particularly interesting in view of the increasing adoption by the community of instability analysis and theoretical flow control approaches based on solutions of the pertinent two- and three-dimensional partial-derivative eigenvalue and initial-value problems.
During the 6th edition of the Symposium, focus will again be placed on advances in theory, numerical algorithms, and experiments, which enable identification and control of fluid flow global instabilities in real-world configurations with multiple inhomogeneous spatial dimensions.
The intended target audience encompasses specialists who have contributed to pioneering developments in this field and are willing to promote synergies in order to advance both the frontiers of knowledge and technology transitions in this field. Young researchers with an interest in global flow instability and control have been an integral part of the Symposium since its early days and are again encouraged to apply.
The day-trip will be maintained, as it has proven to provide quality discussion time amongst the delegates.

The symposium is organized by:
