During abstract submission, you will be asked to select a sorting category for your abstract. This category is used by meeting organizers to help place your abstract in an appropriate session. Note that there may or may not be a direct correspondence between the sorting category and an actual session at the meeting. If you have a second choice for a category, you may indicate it as a ‘special instruction’.

In addition to the over 300 categories for regular contributed abstracts on fluid physics, there will be minisymposia, focus sessions, and sessions for fluids education and outreach topics. These are in Categories 39 and above.

Minisymposia talks are by invitation of the session chairs only. Focus sessions have open submissions, and the session chairs will help structure the session. Any abstract submitted to a focus session but not selected for the session will still be placed in an appropriate regular session.
