23rd Australasian Fluid Mechanics Conference

Sydney, Australia, 4 – 8th December 2022

Welcome from the Chairs

We are pleased to invite you to attend the 23rd Australasian Fluid Mechanics Conference to be held in Sydney, Australia in December 2022. The conference is organised in collaboration with the Australasian Fluid Mechanics Society and brings together leading Australian and international scientists, engineers, educators and research students with common interests in fluid mechanics.

This event will provide excellent opportunities for social networking to strengthen links between Australian and international technical communities in academia, industry and government.

The upcoming event will be the 23rd in a successful series of Australasian Fluid Mechanics Conferences, and the third time that it will be hosted by the University of Sydney. The proceedings of the previous twenty two AFMCs, dating back to 1962, may be found on the website of the Australasian Fluid Mechanics Society.

The AFMC is a family-friendly conference, with child care available for delegates, so we encourage you to make your stay a family affair and enjoy all that Sydney and New South Wales can offer. The conference will be in-person only.

We look forward to welcoming you in Sydney in December 2022.
