Turbulence and convection are phenomena whose existence has haunted astrophysicists because they pose such extremely difficult problems. This conference brought together representatives of four different viewpoints: the computational physicist's numerical three-dimensional large-eddy simulations; theorists, who wish to simplify the equations into approximate, but useful one-dimensional recipes; astrophysicists, who see turbulence and convection as a subroutine; and experimentalists, who provide valuable insights into what really happens at molecular levels in space — and keep everyone else honest.
