The ETMM series of symposia aims to provide a bridge between researchers and practitioners in Flow, Turbulence and Combustion by reporting progress in the predominantly applied, industrially-oriented areas of turbulence research. This includes the development, improvement and application of statistical closures, simulation methods and experimental techniques for complex flow conditions that are relevant to engineering practice; the modelling of interactions between turbulence and chemistry, dispersed phases and solid structures; and the symbiosis of modelling, simulation and experimental research.

The Symposium is the third under the aegis of ERCOFTAC and the eighth in the series of ETMM Conferences, previously held in Dubrovnik (1990), Florence (1993), Crete (1996), Corsica (1999), Mallorca (2002), Sardinia (2005) and Cyprus (2007).
