This conference, to be held at Chengdu University of Technology shortly after the 21st International Sedimentological Congress in Beijing (August 22nd to 26th), will be of interest to all those with an interest in the field of particulate gravity currents. Although we expect a majority of the participants to be from the Earth and environmental sciences, we would like to encourage participation from all those working with: turbidity currents; pyroclastic density currents; haboobs; cohesive and non-cohesive non-Newtonian flows, including transitional or hybrid flows, fluid muds, and rapid granular flows.

To encourage interdisciplinary exchange, we will have keynote addresses from the following:
Wei Hu Mechanics of landslides Chengdu University of Technology, China
Peter Talling Monitoring modern turbidite systems University of Durham, UK
Gert Lube Pyroclastic flows Massey University, New Zealand
Bernhard Vowinckel Non-Newtonian cohesive flows Leichtweiß-Institut für Wasserbau, Germany
Elisabeth Guazzelli Non-Newtonian non-cohesive flows CNRS, Université de Paris, France
Jim McElwaine Snow avalanches University of Durham, UK
Tom Gill Haboobs University of Texas El Paso, US
Giovanni de Cesare Reservoir sedimentation EPFL, Lausanne, Switzerland
He Ziguo Laboratory experiments Zhejiang University, China
Eckart Meiburg Numerical modelling University of California, Santa Barbara, US
Andy Woods Buoyancy and particle transport University of Cambridge, UK


Ben Kneller. University of Aberdeen, UK, and Chengdu University of Technology, China
Eckart Meiburg. University of California, Santa Barbara, US
Tian Yang. Chengdu University of Technology, China
