70th Annual Meeting of the APS Division of Fluid Dynamics
The 70th Annual Meeting of the APS Division of Fluid Dynamics will be held in Denver on November 19-21, 2017. As part of that meeting there will be a mini-symposium and focus session on "Fluid Dynamics of Atmospheric Clouds". The mini symposium will feature invited speakers representing some of the variety and latest results in the field, including Jeremie Bec (Observatoire de la Côte d'Azur), Filippo Coletti (University of Minnesota), Juan Pedro Mellado (Max Planck Institute for Meteorology), Ryo Onishi (JAMSTEC), David Randall (Colorado State University), and Sam Stechmann (University of Wisconsin).
The focus session is open for submissions from any interested conference participants. Topics of interest range from the fine scales of inertial particles in turbulence, to planetary scales at which cloud systems are organized.
You can learn more about the meeting here: http://www.apsdfd2017.org/ The annual DFD meeting is considered one of the premier international gatherings of scientists and engineers working in all aspects of fluid dynamics. It attracts many people working in geophysical fluid dynamics, particles in turbulence, and other topics closely related to cloud physics; that together with the meeting's proximity to the many nearby atmospheric sciences research institutions make this an ideal opportunity for a session on the fluid dynamics of clouds. We hope the opportunity to share your work with this broad and vibrant audience will make participation attractive. The abstract deadline is 1 August 2017. Your abstracts can be submitted at the abstracts.aps.org site, and you should select sorting category "40.6 Fluid dynamics of atmospheric clouds", under the "Focus Sessions" heading near the bottom of the list.
