Fluid Structure Interaction 2007 is the fourth conference in this successful series, which provides a forum for the presentation of new ideas and the latest work in the specialised field of fluid structure interaction. The principal aim of this conference is to promote the international exchange of information and knowledge on fluid structure interaction problems, giving experts from different application fields the opportunity to interact with one another and to provide valuable cross breeding of ideas and techniques.

The conference will encompass a wide range of topics within this area ranging from different types of fluids, such as, wind, current, biofluids and ocean waves to different types of structures, such as, tall buildings, ocean structures, cables, towers, bridges, risers and biological structures. New research for the advancement of interaction problems will be the main focus of the conference. Papers with new applications to real world problems will be particularly welcome. The basic mathematical formulations of fluid structure interaction and their numerical modelling will also be discussed, as well as their physical modelling.

Special sessions at the Conference will deal with problems where the position of the borders or interphase boundaries have to be determined as part of the solution. The transient cases lead to the so-called moving boundary problems, and the steady state case to the free boundary problems. The sessions will also discuss the special numerical methods applied to these studies such as finite differences, finite elements, finite volumes, boundary elements and other mesh reduction techniques.

Papers are sought in the following areas: advanced analytical techniques, computer and experimental modelling, new application and verification of interaction techniques in design, and unique and successful field applications of the design tools.

The conference first started in Halkidiki, Greece in 2001, followed by one in Cadiz, Spain in 2003, and the last meeting was held in La Coruña, Spain, in 2005.
