Vortex dynamics sesquicentennial

The year 2008 will, in some sense, be the sesquicentennial of the field of vortex dynamics. Helmholtz's famous paper on the subject, "Über Integrale der hydrodynamischen Gleichungen, welche den Wirbelbewegungen entsprechen", published in Journal für die reine und angewandte Mathematik (vol. 55, 25–55, appeared in 1858.

Please use this blog to share your ideas on how we might appropriately celebrate the vortex dynamics sesquicentennial. (I have proposed an IUTAM symposium entitled "150 Years of Vortex Dynamics" to be held in 2008. More on that later.)
