General Motivation

The International Conference on Flow in Transforming Porous Media will be open to researchers presenting their results about coupled fluid and solid flow in natural rocks, soils, granular media and porous media. The changes happening can be due to fast processes, with force exchange between fluid and solids, or slow processes, as during chemical reactions with dissolution and precipitation, during seismic cycles in faults or during diagenesis, or thermal processes, as in volcanic phenomena. The conference welcomes contributions from experimental, numerical and theoretical approaches.
