Australasian Fluid Mechanics Conference

AFMC2022 - 23rd Australasian Fluid Mechanics Conference

The 23rd Australasian Fluid Mechanics Conference will be hosted by by the University of Sydney on 4-8 December 2022 in Sydney, Australia.

The conference will bring 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 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.

About the Conference Series

The Australasian Fluid Mechanics Conference has grown steadily from its beginning at the University of Western Australia in 1962. The conference series has traditionally covered the broad field of fluid mechanics in all engineering and scientific disciplines. It provides a forum for presentation of papers in all aspects of fundamental and applied fluid mechanics.
