November 2, 2023 — The annual meeting for the American Physical Society’s (APS) Division of Fluid Dynamics will begin in two weeks with presentations on new research in aerodynamics, turbulence, wind and water power, bubbles, culinary fluid dynamics, medicine, and more. The conference will be held in person at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington, DC, Nov. 19-21.
There are no press conferences planned for this year’s program. However, a tip sheet highlighting newsworthy presentations is now available in the meeting’s press kit. Registered journalists and press officers will receive emails with press information daily for the duration of the meeting and have access to a press room with light refreshments.
In partnership with the D.C. Science Writers Association (DCSWA), APS will host a happy hour for press registrants and DCSWA members in the press room on Nov. 20 at 5:30 p.m. Complimentary beer, wine, non-alcoholic beverages, and snacks will be served.
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 6:30-10:00 p.m. ET.
The annual Gallery of Fluid Motion — a visual arts competition and exhibition that illustrates the science and beauty of the motion of fluids — 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 are 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 is free and open to the public on weekdays between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. ET through Feb. 23.
The scientific program includes nearly 400 sessions and more than 3,200 presentations spanning all topics in the physics of fluids. For more information, search the scientific program. All times are in US Eastern time.
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.
