I am looking for conferences and/or workshops, where people working on different problems using renormalization group methods come together to share their results and experience.
As I have noted, there exist (at least) two largely different approaches to do renormalization calculations, dependent on the field of application:
In fluid dynamics context, the renormalization methods used to calculate effective viscosities for example, are only valid if a single scale invariant subrange (or fixed point) can be assumed are mostly inspired by the work of Yakhot & Orszag.
Conversely, by applying the more general functional or exact renormalization group (ERG) methods, widely used in quantum field theory for example, it is possible to investigate the whole renormalization group flow which may contain several different fixed points.
I am currently interested in both approaches (and in comparing them), so I'd appreciate any pointers to (upcoming) events where people discuss the application of one or the other (or even better both!) of these renormalization approaches to different problems.
