(ICEFM '05)
3rd to 5th March 2005
Organized by
Department of Mathematics, Indian Institute of Technology Guwahati, India
in cooperation with Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM)

With increasing threat to the environment due to pollution, saving the environment has become the responsibility of every person on the earth, more so of the academicians. Currently a lot of research is going on in finding ways to save the environment, in particular, from air and water pollution. In this context, environmental fluid mechanics (EFM) has become a very practical and useful research area. We, in the Department of Mathematics at IIT Guwahati, feel that holding an international conference on EFM in this part of our country will go a long way in keeping ourselves abreast of the latest developments and future opportunities in this very important area of science and engineering. In the same vein, the participation from the industry and academia under the same umbrella will encourage further development of various areas of environmental fluid mechanics at both local and global level.

· Atmospheric and oceanic flows
· Flow over complex terrains, e.g. hills, wind breaks etc.
· Two and multiphase flows
· Flow in porous media
· Flow in continental water bodies, e.g. lakes, rivers, reservoirs etc.
· Any other topic related to environmental fluid mechanics
