Plans are in motion for the 70th Annual Meeting of the American Physical Society Division of Fluid Dynamics, to be held November 19 – 21, 2017 in downtown Denver, Colorado at the Colorado Convention Center. This is one of the largest gatherings of the fluid dynamics research community in the world. There will be 3000 presentations with about 1/3 from outside the United States. All relevant abstracts are accepted (topics). Associated presentations are 10 minutes in length, resulting in a fast-paced, supportive environment showcasing the latest results from fluid science and engineering. Graduate and undergraduate students are encouraged to participate.

The full technical program is now available on the APS website . To make browsing the program easier, each session has been tagged with a track such as ‘CFD’ or ‘Bubbles’. You can filter by the tags from the Session Index page.

All free ticketed events are now full, however you can ask to be put on an event waitlist  here.

An informal Accompanying Visitors program is being assembled by Caryl Kassoy. Sign up here.
