Workshop on Avalanche Dynamics and Precursors of Catastrophic Events (Les Houches)

par Anaïs SCHNEIDER - 11 octobre 2018

Les Houches (France), 4-8 February 2019

The workshop aims at gathering scientists working in varied research topics involving intermittent behaviours associated to strongly correlated dynamics.

Examples range from the atomic to the tectonic scale, including avalanches in
magnetic materials, superconductors, deformation of glasses, cascades of rearrangements in soft matter systems, critical dynamics of imbibition fronts and crack growth ; mechanical response of granular and porous media, wood, and geological flows, such as snow avalanches and earthquakes.

Understanding the complex, nonlinear spatio-temporal response of these systems, is crucial for physical predictions and for the development of reliable models. Recent theoretical and experimental progress makes this a timely forum for an interdisciplinary effort to advance this important emerging research area.

Topics of the workshop include :

  • Conditions for universality (and non-universal features) in avalanche dynamics
  • Precursors of catastrophic events
  • Avalanches in transient dynamics
  • Depinning and yielding transitions
  • Instability in solid earth systems
  • Coarse grained models for avalanche dynamics

- Detailed information for participating and submitting an abstract can be found on the workshop’s website https://avalanche2019.sciencesconf.org/ together with the list of invited speakers.

- Inscriptions to the worshop are welcome, those with abstract being favoured.
The deadline for abstract submission is : November 1, 2018

- The organizers : Kirsten Martens, Jérôme Weiss, Vivien Lecomte, Lasse Laurson
