Instituto Nacional de Astrofisica, Optica y Electronica (INAOE) is glad to announce the 2nd conference under the Programa Internacional "Guillermo Haro". The topic of the conference is INTERSTELLAR TURBULENCE and will be held at the Edificio Carolino of the Benemerita Universidad Autónoma de Puebla, downtown Puebla on January 12-16, 1998.

  • Why Interstellar Turbulence is important?

    Turbulence is universal and mysterious, and it remains as one of the major unsolved problems in physics and astrophysics. It is present in all terrestrial and astrophysical environments: close to our telescopes, it blurs and distorts our view of the skies, and in the interstellar medium, somehow, it removes angular momentum and leads to star formation. Jets, outflows, outburst, the atmosphere and the interstellar medium as a whole are all turbulent media.

    This conference is aimed at revising our conceptions on the onset and properties of turbulence, and at summarizing the present status in observational, theoretical, and computational research in interstellar turbulence. It will also include turbulence in our atmosphere, which results in atmospheric seeing.

  • Frequently Asked Questions

    What is the Tentative Scientific program?
    Which is the Conference Venue?
    What was the topic of the First "Guillermo Haro" conference?

    How do I get to Puebla?
    I reach Mexico City late in the night. Is it advisable to stay in a Hotel at Mexico City Airport?
    I need some tips on Food, Currency, Language, Climate etc or I am interested in Touring Mexico. See the Starburst Activity in Galaxies Guide to the Tonantzintla and Puebla region and links in there. To see sample photographs of some of the nearby (to Puebla) pyramids click here.

    Recently I heard about an eruption of a Volcano in Mexico . Is it close to INAOE?
    What is its present status?
