A number of keynote and invited lectures will review the state of the art in our understanding of wave breaking. The main goal is to incite discussions about the limitations of the available techniques for the modeling of wave breaking, and to identify possible avenues leading to a better description of this challenging physical phenomenon.


Keynote lectures by:

  Michael Banner, University of New South Wales

  Oliver Fringer, Stanford University, USA

  James Kirby,  University of Delaware

  Philip Liu, Cornell University
