Welcome to the 20th Australasian Fluid Mechanics Conference (AFMC)

The 20th Australasian Fluid Mechanics Conference (AFMC) will be held on the grounds of the University of Western Australia in Perth in December 2016 and will bring together an international group of scientists, engineers and educators with common interests in fluid mechanics. The conference, organised in collaboration with the Australasian Fluid Mechanics Society (AFMS), has a long history dating back to 1962 when the inaugural conference was held in Western Australia. After an absence of more than 50 years, the conference will thus be returning to Western Australia in 2016.

The conference is open to all fields of fluid mechanics research, areas of interest, and a range of applications (see list on the right). The seven plenary speakers will cover a diverse range of research areas. Registration and welcome is scheduled for the evening of Sunday December 4th, and presentations will the run from Monday December 5th to Thursday December 8th, with a formal conference dinner on the evening of Wednesday December 7th.

Objectives

The 20th AFMC aims to provide an international forum for scientists, engineers and educators from around the world who are involved in fluid mechanics research, development and innovation. This biennial international event organised by The University of Western Australia in association with Curtin University and the Australasian Fluid Mechanics Society (AFMS). The conference will enable the participants to present and discuss the latest trends and findings and to learn about the state-of-the-art in their particular field(s) of interest. A broad range of topics and application areas has been devised to reflect the interdisciplinary nature of this conference.
