SWEP “Surface Wettability Effects on Phase Change Phenomena » (Brighton UK 4-5 june 2020)

Dear colleagues,

we are very glad to announce that we are launching the 3rd workshop SWEP “Surface Wettability Effects on Phase Change Phenomena” in Brighton, UK.
The workshop will start at 1pm on Thu 4th June and terminate in the afternoon of Fri 5th June 2020.

The workshop aims at providing a forum for researchers to exchange knowledge on two-phase flows experiments, modeling and simulation, to discuss with worldwide experts their current research, and to propose a better comprehension on the effect of surface wettability on phase-change phenomena.

Specific topics include (but are not limited to):

• Mathematical models and computational techniques for phase change processes 

• Experimental techniques to measure the effect of different wettability on phase change phenomena

• Molecular dynamics simulations of phase change phenomena

• Multiscale simulations for boiling, condensation and ice formation 

• Mesoscale phenomena 

• Surface inhomogeneities enhanced phase transitions

Following the success of the previous two editions, we will have only invited lectures for the oral presentations and a number of posters spread in two sessions. Several recognized invited lecturers will give stimulating lectures on various topics related to SWEP. They will offer a panoramic view of the field and on the most recent results.

We also invite you to submit abstracts presenting the results of your original research in the area of experiments, modeling and simulation of wettability effects.
The accepted abstracts will be included in the poster sessions during the workshop.
Young researchers are warmly invited to highlight in their abstracts technical difficulties and open problems related to their own research activities in the SWEP area. The most stimulating topics will be selected for open discussion during the “Ask your question” session where flash-presentations will guide the discussion with the expert audience.

Abstract submission deadline is 31 January 2020
Acceptance of the abstract 29 February 2020

The workshop fees will be determined soon, but they will be aligned to what has been offered in the previous editions, and will likely include also the accommodation and all the lunches, the social dinner and the coffee break. Your travel is not included.

Maximum number of participants: 60
