The conference theme is Waves in fluids from the microscopic to the planetary scale


The wave concept is arguably the most widely used single concept in all of physical science. It links together such diverse disciplines as geophysics, oceanography, meteorology, astrophysics, and
physiology. The wave concept is one that unifies many areas of science and the underpinning mathematical theory of waves finds an enormous spectrum of cross/disciplinary applications. There have been enormous advancements made in both theory and application since Waves III and the
strong groups here in Canada will greatly benefit from a meeting bringing together the best scientists in the world to interact with these groups.


The scientific program is composed of 50-minute plenary lectures followed by contributed talks.
