19th International Symposium on Applications of Laser and Imaging Techniques to Fluid Mechanics
16 - 19 July 2018


The Lisbon Symposia

The laser is one of the remarkable inventions of the 20th century. It has proved to be the most innovative and useful tool for experiments in fluid mechanics. The technological developments in lasers, detectors, electronics, and computers have continued to be the source of new laser techniques, improved accuracy, higher spatial or temporal resolution, and new applications.

Over the past 36 years, The International Symposia on Applications of Laser and Imaging Techniques to Fluid Mechanics, often referred to simply as the LISBON SYMPOSIA, have persistently provided a forum to promote the interchange of new ideas about the development of advanced techniques for flow measurement and on the latest applications in the field. More recently, the intertwining of imaging devices and image acquisition techniques have been central to the continuous development of time-resolved laser imaging techniques that permit the accurate measurement of whole, instantaneous fields and vectors.

In this context, the LISBON SYMPOSIA have started to welcome submissions related to advanced imaging techniques and processing methods that can facilitate new insights into the complex thermofluid-dynamic phenomena, even though not based on laser light sources, such as ultrasound or magnetic resonance imaging.

All the contributed papers are blind peer-reviewed by a carefully chosen committee.

The Proceedings

The conference program is made of four parallel oral sessions of contributed papers and keynote lectures, around which an exhibition runs to bring together world leading manufacturers of laser and imaging equipment for fluid flow research. A plenary session is planned, featuring our exhibitors, to provide ample opportunity for attendees to become acquainted with the latest laser-based techniques developed for fluid flow research.
