From the 11th to the 13th of May 2016, a 3-days colloquium is organised in Grenoble to celebrate Emil Hopfinger's contribution to science.
Through a career spanning over 50 years of research in fluid mechanics, Prof. Emil J. Hopfinger has made inspiring and renewing contributions to the knowledge of geophysical and industrial flows.
In parallel Emil Hopfinger has played a prominent role in the promotion and organisation of the engineering community via his involvement in the American Physical Society (APS) in the US, the European Mechanics Society (EUROMECH) in Europe, and the Comité National de la Recherche Scientifique (CoNRS) in France. He has also been active in the creation of the Laboratoire des Écoulements Géophysiques et Industriels (LEGI) in Grenoble, which he headed for 5 years.
His colleagues from the LEGI organise this event in honour of his 50 years of continuing effort in science.
The conference will take place at the LEGI.
