    Exploring physical parameters in patients, e.g. liver elasticity, arterial pulsation, palpation of nodes and tumors, temperature, etc. is an old medical approach but, paradoxically, its scientific basis has remained poorly understood. New tools developed for high level physics are now coming into use to image the biomechanics of life: Atomic Force Microscopy, Optical Coherence Tomography, Magnetic Resonance Elastometry and Diffusion, Ultrafast ultrasound, Multispectral Optoacoustic tomography, Optical tweezers... are inducing a dramatic shift in exploration of live organisms.

    Environmental fluid dynamics underlies a wealth of natural, industrial and societal challenges. As we strive towards a more sustainable planet, there are a wide range of problems that need to be tackled, ranging from fundamental advances in understanding and modeling of stratified turbulence and mixing, to applied studies of pollution transport in the ocean, atmosphere and urban environments. The objective is to gather leading figures in the field to produce a road map for the scientific community.

    The final workshop of the CREEP InnovativeTraining Network (EU-H2020) will focus on: - the rheology of geological materials, which show complex time-dependent mechanical behaviours and in which feedbacks between processes like microstructural evolution, shear heating, or fluid flow may trigger strain localization; how these rheologies affect the dynamics of our planet, from the global scale to human-induced seismicity, and industrial activities, like energy production, geological storage of fuels or wastes, and production of high-performance glasses.

    In nature as well as in many technical applications, one encounters the sometimes problematic phenomenon of intermittent dynamics, associated to avalanches, that are complex geometrical objects on scales that can span many orders of magnitude. This workshop aims at bringing together experts from various different fields to develop further the understanding of the nonlinear spatio-temporal response of avalanche systems and to find ways to define precursors that could help to prevent catastrophic events.

    The school will bring together experts in physics, mathematics, and (geo)physical fluids. We wish to attract participants with a background in mathematics and physics leading them towards open problems in geophysical fluid dynamics. The presence of rotation and stratification makes the understanding of geophysical turbulence extremely hard, the existence of multiple scales of motions makes direct numerical modelling not entirely feasible. New ideas from statistical mechanics and dynamical systems theory are needed to improve our ability to perform prediction in a deterministic and statistical sense. The lectures will focus on advances on the mathematics and physics of fluid flows at different scales. Four main streams of activities will be explored, based on the paradigm of deterministic chaotic systems, stochastic dynamics, theory of turbulence, and statistical mechanics. The lectures will cover simultaneously theoretical analytic advances in these areas as well as computational techniques.

    This Winter School will explore the rapidly emerging field of therapeutic ultrasound. Topics will range from an introduction to the physics and biophysics necessary for understanding these techniques through to their clinical application.This is a broad and complex topic in which the synergy of a multidisciplinary approach is particularly valuable

    This manifestation will constitute the 7th edition of the Son et Lumière international school devoted to nanophononics, a multidisciplinary research field aiming at studying vibrations (phonons) in systems with a nanometric size or structuration, as well as their interaction with light and other waves. The two main goals of the school are to favor interactions between the different communities involved in nanophononics (optics, acoustics, thermal transfer, optomechanics, …) and to provide a detailed overview of this field for young researchers.
