Together with turbulence, multiphase flow remains one of the most challenging areas of computational mechanics and experimental methods and numerous 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. Experimental techniques, although expensive and difficult to perform, are essential to validate models.

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.

The conference will be of interest to 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.
