The I Workshop of the Venezuelan Society of Fluid Mechanics (FLUIDOS2012)

The I Workshop of the Venezuelan Society of Fluid Mechanics 2012 (FLUIDOS2012) will take place in November, 5th to 9th 2012 in the Margarita Island, Venezuela, under the auspices of the Instituto Venezolano de Investigaciones Científicas (IVIC), FONACIT, PDVSA, CORPOELEC, Universidad Central de Venezuela (UCV), Universidad de los Andes (ULA), Universidad Simón Bolívar (USB), INZIT, La Universidad del Zulia (LUZ), Universidad Nacional Experimental Politécnica de la Fuerza Armada Nacional (UNEFA), Universidad de Carabobo (UC), CIDA, FUNDACITE-MÉRIDA, Consejo Mexiquense de Ciencia y Tecnología (COMECYT), CINVESTAV - ABACUS, Instituto Nacional de Investigaciones Nucleares (ININ), and CONACyT.

This workshop will bring together national and international researchers focusing on fluid flow and its applications. The objetive of the workshop is to provide a forum for presentation of state-of-the-art research in both theoretical and experimental fluid mechanics as well as opportunities for interactions among the participants. During the workshop it is expected to organize a network of professionals, young researchers, and students working in basic and applied fluid dynamics oriented to engineering technology.

The Venezuelan Society of Fluid Mechanics invites researchers, professors, professionals, and students working in the area of fluid mechanics to send their contributions. The program of the workshop will consist of fourteen (14) invited conferences by renowned national and international researchers, several oral presentations, and a poster stand.
