Minisymposia for DFD Annual Meeting 2020

We seek nominations for up to twelve 30-minute invited presentations that emphasize major advancements in the science and technology of fluid dynamics also including presentations that attract and inspire both those in and outside specific sub-disciplines. Speakers will be asked to include in their presentation a short pedagogical overview of their topic accessible to the broader fluids science community. We encourage diversity in topics and in speakers’ backgrounds. Please use the invited speaker nomination form (Word Doc) and email it to sanna@cmu.edu prior to the March 15, 2020 deadline by 5 PM EST, using "DFD/APS Invited Lecture" in the subject line.
