October 10, 2023 — Next month, more than 3,500 scientists from around the world will meet to present new research on the physics of fluids at the 76th annual meeting of the American Physical Society’s (APS) Division of Fluid Dynamics. The conference will be held in person at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington, DC, Nov. 19-21.
Discounted hotel rates are available at the Marriott Marquis and the Renaissance Hotel. Book your hotel by Oct. 17 to receive the discount.
News media and public information officers with valid APS press credentials may register for the meeting at no cost. To request press credentials, visit APS’s virtual press office. Registration will remain open throughout the meeting.
The scientific program will include more than 3,200 presentations on aerodynamics, turbulence, wind and water power, bubbles, culinary fluid dynamics, jets, and more. For more information, search the scientific program. All times are in US Eastern time.
The annual Gallery of Fluid Motion — a visual arts competition and exhibition that illustrates the science and beauty of fluid motion — will be held at the meeting. Winners will be announced in a ceremony on Nov. 20.
Select sculptures, pictures, and videos from past Gallery of Fluid Motion entries will be on display in a new exhibition called “Chaosmosis: Assigning Rhythm to the Turbulent” at the National Academy of Sciences building in Washington, DC, as part of the Cultural Programs of the National Academy of Sciences. The exhibition will be free and open to the public on weekdays between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. ET starting Oct. 2 and running through Feb. 23.
Press registrants may join other meeting attendees for an after-hours tour of eight new galleries at the Smithsonian’s National Air and Space Museum on Nov. 20 from 6:30-10:30 p.m. ET.
Details about the press program will be announced soon. Press releases, tip sheets, and other resources to help journalists cover newsworthy presentations will be available in a press kit on APS’s online newsroom ahead of the meeting.
The American Physical Society is a nonprofit membership organization working to advance and diffuse the knowledge of physics through its outstanding research journals, scientific meetings, and education, outreach, advocacy, and international activities.
