Workshop on Nonlinear Waves in Oceanography and Beyond

Date: 26–30 November 2018
Venue: Building R, Lecture Theatre R113, Univ. Southern Queensland, Toowoomba

Dedicated to the 80th birthday of Prof. Roger Grimshaw, Fellow of the Australian Academy of Sciences, this five-day workshop aims to bring together world-leading experts on nonlinear waves in physical oceanography and beyond. The workshop will discuss contemporary research and trends in the nonlinear wave theory. It aims to promote interdisciplinary collaborations between Australian and New Zealand scientists with international researchers.

Further, the workshop will place focus on advancing theoretical, numerical and experimental techniques across different branches of wave science, development of laboratory experiments, and cooperation for field experiments. Several popular public lectures will be given by famous researchers for a wide audience.
