Software Defined Networks (SDN) have the potential to change the way networking systems are being built. In SDN, the control "brains" of the network get centralized, yet in a scalable manner, and network element (routers,switches) low-level internals become programmable by device-external applications.In essence, SDN systems can be used to virtualize the switching capacity of a network the same way a virtual machine virtualizes computing and memory resources.

The summer school "Wave Patterns and Interactions in Advection-Dominated Flows" is organized in the frame of Marie-Curie Initial Training Network MULTIFLOW. MULTIFLOW hosts a collaboration of ten academic and industrial institutions, aiming at improved understanding and controlling of interfacial phenomena in multiphase fluid dynamics. By fostering the mobility and interdisciplinarity of a strong group of early-stage researchers, the network aims to: (i) create a multi-disciplinary, highly innovative and intersectorial training pool in the field of multi-scale interfacial fluid dynamics; (ii) generate new tools and techniques for the theoretical-numerical-experimental investigation of such flows.
The summer school offers theory, simulation and experiment in such interfacial flows where advection is not negligible. It is a combination of tutorial and research talks offered by senior scientists, complemented by shorter talks of our early-stage researchers (ESRs) who are close to completion of their PhD theses.
The program is built around the following key topics:
-External triggering of interfacial flows (gas shear, electric fields, agitation, heterogeneous substrates)
-Advection and pattern-formation (heat-mass transfer, wave interactions)
-Numerical methods for interfacial flows (Navier-Stokes and lubrication equations)

Reliable estimates of expected extreme flood events are required for design and operation of vital infrastructure such as flood defenses, bridges and culverts, and also for more general flood risk management and planning, e.g. emergency planning, flood risk mapping, and for defining flood insurance premiums. In practice, this information is obtained through the use of flood frequency estimation techniques based on the principle of analyzing series of observed events to infer a probabilistic behavior, which is then extrapolated to provide estimates of the likely magnitude of future extreme events (e.g. the magnitude of the flood expected to be exceeded on average once every 100-year).
By nature, extreme flood events are seldom observed locally and hydrologists have little or no chance of gathering an adequate sample of catastrophes. This raises the question of how best to extrapolate to extreme events when no or only short se-ries of recent events are available. Where methods do exists they are often simple and their ability to accurately predict the effect of environmental change (e.g. urbanization, land-use change, river training and climate change) is unknown. Also, the problem of consistent estimates of extreme floods for trans-boundary rivers is rarely considered.
