EPJ E Call for papers: Non-equilibrium Processes in Multicomponent and Multiphase Media

Most continuous media in natural and technological processes are multicomponent and/or multiphase systems. The physics behind the phenomenology of non-equilibrium processes in such media is an exciting and active topic for research which benefits from a continuous interaction between theory, experiments and numerical simulations. The European Physical Journal E is will contribute to this effort by publishing a topical issue on non-equilibrium processes in multicomponent and multiphase media. The areas of interest for this Topical Issue include, but are not limited to:

- Hydrodynamic instability and transition to complex non-periodic and chaotic regimes

- Generation and evolution of large-scale vortex structures in turbulent flows

- Heat and mass transfer in the atmosphere and oceans

- Hydrodynamics of systems with fluid interfaces

- Formation of dynamic and dissipative structures at interfaces

- Thermodiffusion and thermophoresis in molecular fluids and colloidal suspensions

- Acoustic and wave processes in inhomogeneous media

- Non-equilibrium processes in complex fluids and disperse media

These topics were presented at the International Symposium “Non-Equilibrium Processes in Continuous Media" which was held in Perm (Russia) in May 2017. The topical issue is inspired by this meeting but it is open to the entire world-wide community of scientists working of these problems.

Deadline for submission: September 15th, 2017.

Guest editors of the special issue:

Tatyana Lyubimova (Institute of Continuous Media Mechanics UB RAS, Perm, Russia)

Valentina Shevtsova (Université Libre de Brussels, Brussels, Belgium)

Fabrizio Croccolo (Université de Pau et des Pays de l'Adour, Pau, France)

Authors wishing to contribute should send their manuscripts (before the deadline of August 15, 2017) directly to the EPJE Editorial Office at https://articlestatus.edpsciences.org/is/epje. Submissions should be clearly identified as intended for the topical issue " Non-Equilibrium Processes in Multicomponent and Multiphase Media". All submitted manuscripts will be peer-reviewed according to the usual high standards of EPJE.
