BIFD 2017

We thank you all for coming!  

Next BIFD-2019 will be held in Limerick, Ireland

Here you find the Welcome Presentation

A special issue of Fluid Dynamics Research (published by IOP) will be devoted to BIFD-2017. Articles are full length and refereed. The deadline for submission is October 31, 2017.

Send your photos of BIFD-2017 for the Photo Gallery.

Scope of the Symposium

  • Instabilities and bifurcations in sheared, rotating and convective flows, thin films, magnetohydrodynamics, geophysical and astrophysical flows.

  • Transition to turbulence, flow control, bio-locomotion.

  • Industrial, environmental and biomedical applications.
