5th 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 2019.
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 Sustainability, Energy and Environment Community (SEEC) Building at the University of Colorado, Boulder on Monday, July 29, 2019.
Our keynote speaker this year will be Prof. Jacqueline O'Connor from Pennsylvania State University. You can read more about Prof. O'Connor and her research here: Reacting Flow Dynamics Laboratory.
For the first time at RMFM, awards for "Best Presentation in Session" were selected at RMFM 2019. Awardees in each session were:
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 minute for the transition between speakers (totaling 15 minutes for each speaker). As part of its educational mission, all talks at RMFM 2019 will be delivered by undergraduate, graduate, or postdoctoral researchers.
Abstracts are limited to a 1300 character maximum and should be uploaded at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/RMFM2019 by 11:59pm Mountain Time on Wednesday, July 17, 2019. Abstract submissions must include the following components:
Lead authors and presenters are limited to one submission. Questions may be directed to email@example.com.
In addition, Ryan Darragh from the University of Colorado, Boulder served as the lead student organizer for both RMFM 2018 and 2019.
RMFM 2019 will be held in the Sustainability, Energy and Environment Community (SEEC) 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
