4th Annual Rocky Mountain Fluid Mechanics Research Symposium
The Rocky Mountain Fluid Mechanics (RMFM) Research Symposium is a local technical meeting bringing together students, faculty, and professional researchers with a common interest in fluid mechanics. The primary purpose of the symposium is to provide student researchers along the Colorado Front Range and the greater Rocky Mountain Region the opportunity to present and discuss their work in a casual setting. Oral presentations are encouraged from interested students, but a presentation is not required to attend the meeting. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like more information about RMFM 2018.
The symposium program will consist of a series of topical sessions in various areas of fluid mechanics. Each topical session will consist of 15 minute oral presentations delivered by undergraduate and graduate students, as well as postdoctoral researchers. The symposium will take place in the Eaton Humanities Building at the University of Colorado, Boulder on August 13-14, 2018.

Abstracts are requested for oral presentations in all areas of fluid mechanics. Oral presentations are 12 minutes long with an additional 2 minutes for questions and discussion, followed by 1 min for the transition between speakers (totaling 15 minutes for each speaker). As part of its educational mission, all talks at RMFM 2018 will be delivered by undergraduate, graduate, or postdoctoral researchers.
Abstracts are limited to a 1300 character maximum and should be submitted to email@example.com by 11:59pm Mountain Time on August 3, 2018. Abstract submissions must include the following components:
Lead authors and presenters are limited to one submission. Questions may be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Travel and Hotel Accomodations
For the first time, modest travel allowances will be provided for student presenters and their advisors. During the time of abstract submission, student presenters should indicate their interest in being considered for a travel grant. Advisors who wish to also be considered for a travel grant should email email@example.com indicating that they are interested in receiving travel support, as well as identifying the student(s) that they advise. Travel grants will be awarded based on need and the availability of funds.
RMFM 2018 will be held in the Eaton Humanities Building at the University of Colorado, Boulder. Parking is free with a permit, which will be provided at the symposium. The locations of Eaton and parking are shown in the map below.Larger Map
