The workshop marks the centenary of the first meeting on hydro- and aero-dynamics, organized by Tullio Levi-Civitá and Theodore von Kármán, that took place in Innsbruck, Austria in 1922. This meeting allowed scientists from different countries still recovering from the First World War to meet and exchange novel insights. Results and presentations published in the volume Vorträge aus dem Gebiete der Hydro- und Aerodynamik (Innsbruck 1922) reveal benchmark papers by Th. von Kármán, L. Prandtl, V. Bjerknes, V.W. Ekman, W. Heisenberg among others.
Claudianasaal, Herzog-Friedrich-Straße 3, 6020 Innsbruck
The historic environment of Claudianasaal and accompanying rooms, was chosen to encourage retrospecting on a century of vivid developments in our understanding of atmospheric turbulence.

The workshops on each topic will consist of two keynote talks, followed by short statements, and then discussions in smaller groups. The findings of each group will be presented and further discussed in a panel (plenary) session.
Group discussions will look into the past, present and future of turbulence research from the perspective of
> numerical modelling
Those who are interested will have an opportunity on Thursday and Friday afternoon to give a short talk.
The workshop will serve as a basis for a review paper on the Open Questions in Atmospheric Turbulence, 100 years later.
