I was invited to present a talk at the Symposium in honor of John L Lumley on his 70th Birthday (June 24 and 25, 2001). Reviewed papers from this Symposium have been published by Physics of Fluids.

I was also invited to present a talk at the Symposium in honor of Robert A. Antonia on his 60th Birthday (July 18 and 19, 2003). Reviewed papers from this Symposium have been published by Flow, Turbulence and Combustion.  Also at that for his 70th birthday (3-5 July 2013).

DRIVE (in French) : a research program aimed at providing quantitative experimental data for automotive applications to strengthen the risk assessments. The work program of DRIVE covers all aspects of the accidental chain : hydrogen releases, formation of an explosive atmosphere (ATEX), ignition of the ATEX, flame propagation and its consequences. State-of-the-art risk assessment and mitigation techniques are also considered.
