International Workshop on Physical Modelling of Flow and Dispersion Phenomena

29 - 31 August 2022, Prague, Czech Republic
Updated June 16, 2022 - Registration is still open but only for attendance (online and onsite) without contributions.
The deadline for payment has been postponed till June 30, 2022
The deadline for uploading extended abstracts has been postponed till July 8, 2022
Since the situation in the world is very unstable in many aspects and predictions are hard to make, we have had a difficult time deciding what to do with the PHYSMOD Workshop. We felt that there is a need for a physical meeting while many participants won't be able to travel for objective reasons. Therefore we decided to hold PHYSMOD in a hybrid way.


The objective of PHYSMOD is to bring together the community active in physical and numerical modelling of flow and dispersion processes occurring in the lowest part of the atmosphere using wind tunnels, water channels, or CFD models. We will discuss the state-of-the-art in the field, define the direction of future research, and encourage broader collaboration between researchers. We will be happy to welcome students who present their work and incorporate them into our community.

We invite and welcome contributions from all areas of atmospheric flow modelling and dispersion processes to share valuable experiences. Sessions include but do not limit to the following topics:

  • Atmospheric boundary layer
  • Flow and dispersion in urban areas
  • Transient properties of dispersion processes
  • Validation of numerical and analytical models
  • A synergy of physical modeling and field measurements
  • Quality assurance and improvement of experimental techniques
  • OOP - Obnoxious Operational Problems
