Most of the scientific interest in incompressible fluid dynamics is, in one way or another, associated with the dynamics of small scales. In particular, the generation and amplification of small-scale motions is at the heart of the analysis of instabilities, of the problem of finite-time singularities, of fluid-structure interaction and of the study of both onset and fully developed turbulence. This topic has a long history and remains very active today. As the mathematical toolbox increases and with the improvement of high-speed computing, it has seen considerable progress in recent years. In this workshop we will focus on exploring this point-of-view while showcasing recent results and encouraging new collaborations.
