Welcome to the Yosemite Fluid Meeting 2017! The objective of this meeting is to further collaborations between researchers in the area of Fundamental Fluid Dynamics, broadly defined. Participants will come from institutions in Central and Northern California and Western Nevada. Invited faculty members and their groups will hail from various departments, including Mathematics, Applied Mathematics, Physics, Biology, and Engineering departments.

The meeting will be held on Sept. 15-17, 2017. Participants will thus arrive on a Friday evening, and the conference will take place on Saturday and early on Sunday. A tentative schedule is given below

Our schedule includes short talks, posters, and extended discussion sessions. The format of the presentations will be a 15-minute talk, followed by a 5-minute question period. This will allow several speakers (24 in all) and thus allow participants to familiarize themselves with a maximum number of potential collaborators. The aim of this schedule is to allow a mixture of formal presentations where participants can learn about one-another’s research, with informal discussions where deeper connections can be formed.

The meeting will take place in the SNRI-Yosemite Field Station in Wawona - UC Merced. http://snrs.ucmerced.edu/YOSE_FS. Because UC Merced subsidizes the venue, it provides relatively inexpensive lodging ($30/night/person) in the form of shared cabins, while providing a beautiful and enticing setting within Yosemite National Park. To learn more about what to expect at the field station please visit this link: (Belay, please put a link to the what to expect form here). Attendees will need to bring their own pillows, linens, blankets, and towels. If you would like to camp at the nearby Wawona Campground instead of lodging at the field station, reservations can be made here: https://www.nps.gov/yose/planyourvisit/wawonacamp.htm. Meals will be catered from neighboring vendors so that participants can spend the entire meeting onsite. If needed, this location can also accommodate a day-care service, by hiring an external care-giver.

To cover expenses, mostly related to food, we ask for a registration fee of $250 per person. If you would prefer to find your own accommodation, a reduced registration fee of $190 per person is available.

Organizing Committee

The prospect of organizing a local meeting focused on fluids dynamics has long been discussed among the faculty at UC Merced. The Fluids Research group (website at http://appliedmath.ucmerced.edu/research/fluids-research-group) will be in charge of organizing the conference, with Prof. Blanchette and Prof. Mitchell acting as primary contacts with the enthusiastic support of the other faculty members of the group: Profs. Khatri, Kleckner, and Liu.

Long-term outlook

We envision this meeting as the first of a recurring series of meetings. While it is difficult to make definite plans before the initial meeting has taken place, we anticipate holding such a meeting regularly. We would be happy to continue hosting the meeting in Yosemite every other year. We also anticipate that other institutions would likely host a similar meeting to ensure that it becomes a regular occurrence. The Yosemite FluMe 2017 would thus be a first step is establishing a strong, regular, regional Fluid Dynamics meeting.
