The ETC17 conference (17th European Turbulent Conference) was organized at Politecnico di Torino in collaboration with Università di Torino, and was held from 3rd to 6th September 2019. The chairs of ETC17 were Prof. Daniela Tordella, Coordinator of MSCA ITN – ETN COMPLETE, and Guido Boffetta from the University of Turin. 

Some of our ESRs presented their work during the conference: 

  • Mina Golshan, ESR13 (Cloud-clear air interfaces: Population Balance Equation solutions by considering nucleation information from in-situ measurements, and by modeling the droplet growth on super-saturation fluctuation data from numerical simulation) 
  • Tai Wada, ESR3 (Particle entrainment through a turbulent/non-turbulent interface) 
  • Vishnu Nair, ESR4 (Dynamics of subsiding shells in actively growing clouds with vertical updrafts)
  • Guus Bertens, ESR5 (Results from the Zugspitze experiment: an in-situ cloud-droplet particle-tracking experiment)
  • Moein Mohammadi, ESR9 (Turbulence in marine boundary layer clouds: a meta-analysis of airborne measurements)
  • Emmanuel Akinlabi, ESR10 (Fractal reconstruction of sub-grid scales for particle dispersion in large eddy simulation)

Shahbozbek Abdunabiev (ESR15) and Mina Golshan (ESR13) also helped with the organisation of the conference and Miryam Paredes (ERS12) participated and followed the presentations during the conference as well. 

Groups of the H2020 MSCA ITN – ETN COMPLETE that participated to the ETC17 were:

  • POLITO (Prof. Daniela Tordella)
  • UW (Prof. Szymon Malinowski, Aleksandra Kardas)
  • MPG (Prof. Eberhard Bodenschatz)
  • TAU (Prof. Alex Liberzon)
  • ICL (Prof. Maarten van Reeuwijk)


A novelty of the ETC17 was Child-care services, a first time the child-care services were offered free of charge to its participants.  

The service was provided in the afternoon of Tuesday, September 3rd, 2 p.m. – 6 p.m., and in the following days, September 4-5-6, from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. The service was open for children from a few months to 13 years of age.
The service was provided by Cooperative, the company that coordinates Policino, the child-care services for the Politecnico di Torino.
