Welcome to the Workshop


The workshop aims to bring together vacuum scientists and engineers interested in all aspects of gas flow modelling in vacuum systems and researchers who develop numerical and analytical methods of calculations of gas flows in the whole range of the gas rarefaction including the free molecular, transitional, and hydrodynamic regimes. This shall interlink for the first time three communities, namely rarefied gas dynamics, vacuum science and vacuum related industry. It shall promote the recent progress in the energesing field of gas dynamics and stimulate its use for industrial applications.

The Workshop is organised by Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (Karlsruhe, Germany), Accelerator Science and Technology Centre (STFC Daresbury Laboratory, UK) and Federal University of Parana (Brazil) with support of the International Union for Vacuum Science, Technique and Applications (IUVSTA) (http://www.iuvsta.org/) and commercial sponsors.

Workshop Scheme

The organisation of the workshop is structured as follows:

Each session will start with an invited overview talk. After that, the session is open to the invited attendees, to present contributed talks and discuss. Please note that this workshop is not a school or conference; rather it is a forum where experts share their own opinions and discuss state-of-the-art problems and issues. It is a forum to encourage open communication. Invited attendees are selected by the organizers on the basic of their expertise on the topic. Please express your interest and send an e-mail to one of the organisers.The number of participants is limited to 50.


On-site registration will start in the afternoon on Sunday 15th May, 2011. The registration desk and Workshop secretariat is located at Hotel Leinsweiler Hof.

The workshop will start in the morning on Monday 16th May and will finish after lunch on Thursday 19th May.

There will be a Welcome Reception on Sunday evening and Workshop Dinner on Wednesday evening.


The Workshop sessions will include invited (30 min) and regular (15 min) talks, followed by 20-min open discussion at the end of each session.
There will be no poster session.


There will be no formal proceedings but participants are asked to provide the organiser with an electronic copy of their presentation. These will be collated into a record of the Workshop, which will be distributed to participants and placed on the web if the participants agree to do so.
