The Euromech Fluid Mechanics Conference will be held in Toulouse (France) from August 24 to August 28, 2003. This conference, organised under the auspices of EUROMECH by the Institut de Mécanique des Fluides de Toulouse, will be the fifth in the series started in Cambridge in 1991 and continued in Warsaw (1994), Göttingen (1997), and Eindhoven (2000). The conference will cover the whole field of Fluid Dynamics, ranging from very fundamental aspects to recent applications. This conference will provide a unique opportunity for fluid dynamicists to see what is going on in this very active field in Europe and to exchange their views on recent developments.
The conference will comprise invited lectures, oral presentations, poster sessions, and three mini-symposia dealing with selected topics. Selection of papers will be made on the basis of a one-page abstract. Following the general policy of EUROMECH Conferences, no proceedings will be published. Regular sessions will involve almost all the topics of modern Fluid Dynamics, among which Bio-fluid Mechanics, Aerodynamics, Turbulence, Particles, Drops and Bubbles, Hydrodynamic Instabilities, Flow Control, Surface and Internal Waves, Geophysical Fluid Dynamics, Low-Reynolds-Number flows and Microfluidics, Non-Newtonian Flows, Computational Fluid Mechanics, Magnetohydrodynamics, Vortex Dynamics, Foams, Granular Flows, Porous Media, Reactive Flows and Combustion.
