XXXI Canary Islands Winter School: Computational Fluid Dynamics in Astrophysics

Registration is now open for the XXXI Canary Islands Winter School of Astrophysics, which will be held this year in La Laguna, Tenerife, Spain from 19-28 November, on the topic of "Computational Fluid Dynamics in Astrophysics". Confirmed invited lecturers are

Fernando Moreno-Insertis (Fluid dynamics, conservation laws and waves)
Ake Nordlund (Stellar and planetary formation)
Maarit Käpylä (Dynamics of solar and stellar convection zones)
Matthias Rempel (Solar Atmosphere)
Sascha Husa (General relativity and compact objects)
Stefanie Walch-Gassner (Interstellar matter)
Tom Theus (Galaxy evolution)

The school will consist of lectures, seminars tutorials, and social events including visits to the observatories in Tenerife and La Palma. It is aimed at advanced graduate students in astrophysics, as well as postdoctoral researchers, with a strong interest in the computational fluid dynamics and it applications astrophysics.
