The GDR MésoImage is organizing a workshop "Waves in complex media" in Grenoble from 11 to 13 December 2013.

Waves are all around us and we know that in many situations, "all waves behave in a similar way" (citation from L. Brillouin). This includes such phenomena as interference, diffraction, or scattering that can be observed with light, sound, seismic and matter waves. The universality of wave phenomena can be even stronger in complex environments where new phenomena emerge due to scattering from disorder, underlying symmetries of the system, or nonlinearity or the medium response. But it can also be lost because of peculiarities of a particular wave equation that turns out to be crucial in a specific complex environment. Our research group (groupement de recherche, GDR) MesoImage is aimed at the study of universal and nonuniversal aspects of wave propagation in complex environments with focus on applications for imaging and, more generally, noninvasive probing of complex media. In this spirit, the announced workshop will continue the tradition of interdisciplinary meeting that GDR organizes with participation of physicists (theoreticians and experimentalists), mathematicians, and geophysicists.

The workshop will start on Wednesday, December 11, 2013 in the morning (the first talk will be scheduled at 10:30) and end on Friday, December 13, 2013 (around 16:30). The program will include talks that will cover the ensemble of GDR topics. A poster session and a social dinner will be organized on Thursday, December 12.

The deadline for registration is November 11, 2013. To register, please send an e-mail with your personal information and a tentative title of your proposed talk or poster to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .
