71st Annual Meeting of the American Physical Society Division of Fluid Dynamics in Atlanta will be the largest gathering of its kind anywhere in the world this year.
7-Nov-2018 2:05 PM EST
Newswise — WASHINGTON, D.C., November 8, 2018 -- The American Physical Society’s Division of Fluid Dynamics 71st Annual Meeting will take place Nov. 18-20 at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta, Georgia. It will be one of the largest conferences in fluid dynamics this year, with more than 3,000 attendees expected from around the world.
Journalists are invited to attend the meeting for free. Press registration may be obtained by emailing the American Institute of Physics' Media Line at firstname.lastname@example.org. Live press webcasts featuring a selection of newsworthy research will take place during the meeting. Times and topics to be announced soon.
Fluid dynamics is an interdisciplinary field that investigates visible and invisible phenomena from a wide range of disciplines including engineering, physics, biology, oceanography, atmospheric science and geology.
The conference will include invited talks by experts on subjects including:
- Flight of the Fruit Fly (Session C39.00001)
- Hairy Hydrodynamics (Session B38.00003 Stanley Corrsin Award Talk)
- Wind Energy: The Pressure is On (Session N38.00001)
- Biological Fluid Mechanics (Session L24.00002)
- Revealing Lagrangian pathways for transport in a turbulent ocean (Session J38.00001)
- Geophysical Fluid Dynamics (Session L24.00004)
- Turbulence (Session L24.00006)
- Singularities in Fluid Dynamics (Session B38.00002 Otto LaPorte Lecture)
- MicroAngelo Technique: 3D Sculpting of Nanofilms (Session H39.00001)
- Fluid mechanics of modern artistic painting (Session J39.00001)
