About DFD Meeting 2024

Join your physics community to learn from new research and network at the DFD Annual Meeting.

Attendees mingling

The 77th Annual APS DFD Annual Meeting is one of the largest conferences in fluid dynamics, promoting the advancement and dissemination of physics knowledge in all areas of fluid dynamics. 3,600 students, postdoctoral researchers, university faculty, and researchers across government and industry from around the world attend to share the latest developments in the field.

Who attends

APS DFD welcomes a diverse audience committed to addressing global challenges through fluid dynamics research. Attendees include researchers, academics, and industry professionals passionate about exploring fluid dynamics.

How you’ll learn

Prepare to enjoy a robust technical program, meaningful networking events, career opportunities, and more:

  • Special sessions with invited talks by distinguished speakers, lectures by award and prize winners, minisymposia and focus sessions in areas of high current interest, and the NEW DFD-Interact sessions.
  • This year we will pilot the DFD-Interact sessions, designed to allow broader audiences and more opportunities for in-depth interaction about research. About 20 thematically curated DFD-Interact sessions will highlight participants’ research during the high-engagement late-Sunday-morning time slot. In these sessions, participants will give a flash talk to advertise their research, and then interact with the audience at posters or electronic presentations.
  • Opportunities to present at and attend sessions with contributed talks and posters.
  • Networking receptions and events focused on inclusivity, career growth, and building valuable relationships
  • Exhibit hall featuring measurement and instrumentation tech, publishers, and employers

What’s new for 2024

Attend the new DFD-Interact sessions on Sunday, consisting of flash talks and time for detailed discussions with larger audiences in fewer parallel rooms.
