The 13th SIG 33-ERCOFTAC Workshop belongs to the successful series initiated in 1999 in Toulouse. The purpose of the present workshop is to provide a forum where new ideas and concepts on flow instability and control can be openly discussed.

The current event is co-funded through the program Swedish Endowed Professor Chair at ITA in the Honor of Peter Wallenberg Sr. and will take place in Paraty, Brazil.


  • We invite submission of abstracts on ongoing activities on:
  • Linear stability approaches, modal and non-modal theories, etc.
  • Effect of stochastic and deterministic excitations, receptivity, etc.
  • Nonlinear effects, "exact coherent structures", edge states, etc.
  • Control, estimation and compensation, etc.
  • Optimal and suboptimal control, experimental approaches, etc.
  • Reduced order models, etc.

Invited speakers:
