The success of the first three International Conferences on Multiphase Flow, (Orlando, Florida 2001; Santa Fe, New Mexico 2003; Portland, Maine 2005) has led to the reconvening of the meeting in Bologna, Italy in 2007.

Fluid dynamics is one of the main topics of applied mathematics and physics. Together with complex flows and turbulence, multiphase flows remain one of the most challenging areas of computational mechanics, and even seemingly simple problems remain unsolved to date.

Multiphase flows are found in all areas of technology, at all length scales and flow regimes. The fluids involved can be compressible or incompressible, linear or nonlinear. Because of the complexity of the problems, it is often essential to utilize advanced computational and experimental methods to solve the complex equations that describe them. Challenges in these simulations include modelling and tracking interfaces, dealing with multiple length scales, modelling nonlinear fluids, treating drop breakup and coalescence, characterizing phase structures, and many others.

New advanced numerical methods and computer architectures have greatly improved the ability to solve complex multiphase flow problems. This conference aims to bring together modellers, computational scientists and experimentalists to share experiences, successes, new methodologies and in general to promote the advancement of this important area of fluid mechanics.

Researchers and engineers who wish to communicate recent computational and experimental advances in complex and multiphase flow and to demonstrate how these numerical tools can be applied in engineering and technology practices.
