Vortex 2015

El Escorial, from 10-15 May 2015.

The purpose of the Workshop is to promote international collaboration and
exchange of ideas in the field of vortex physics. Interested participants
please contact the organization at info@vortex2015.org. The Abrikosov Prize
in Vortex Physics 2015 will be announced during the workshop. The Prize
recognizes outstanding achievements in the basic science of vortex behavior,
and is presented every two years at this workshop. Details for proposal
submission will be soon available in vortex2015.org.
