Mini-Workshop on High Rayleigh Number Convection

March 30 - April 1, 2000

B. Shraiman & R. Kerr

This informal gathering will review the current state of understanding of convective heat transport in turbulent regime(s) and reexamine various theories (of the scaling behavior of the heat flux) in the light of the new experiments.
