  • Rotating convection - Edgar Knobloch (University of California Berkeley, USA)
  • Hamiltonian dynamics and fluid motions - Lev Lerman (Lobachevsky University of Nizhny Novgorod, Russia)

There is also a plenary course available:

  • Weak vs strong solvability of problems in fluid mechanics - Eduard Feireisl (Institute of Mathematics of the Czech Academy of Sciences, Czech Republic).

The registration fee for the school is €75 per participant up until 15 February 2017. After this date, registration will be €100. Participants, and in particular students, are encouraged to present a poster at the poster session.
