Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

Student Lunch (Monday)

Monday, 25 November, 12:45 - 13:45
Westin, Westmoreland Room

Supported by: The Swanson School of Engineering and its Laboratory for Computational Transport Phenomena at the University of Pittsburgh and the Fluid Dynamics Research Consortium at Penn State University.
Organized by: Shelley Anna, Carnegie Mellon University, Martina Bukac, University of Pittsburgh and Ismail Celik, West Virginia University.

Students attending the meeting will have the opportunity to participate in a discussion with an expert on topics of interest. Each expert will host an informal discussion over a complimentary lunch. The luncheon will begin promptly at 12:45. Interested students must sign up in advance by contacting Shelley Anna at Please write "DFD Student Lunch" in the email subject line, and indicate which expert you would like to be seated with.
