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


In the LISBON SYMPOSIA, any scientific contributions to the theory and practice of measurement methods are welcome, if they facilitate new improved fluid mechanic research, including contributions in the cutting-edge fields of microfluidics and biofluidics, in the diverse backgrounds of biology, chemistry, physics, and engineering, as well as in the development of physical models, validation of numerical predictions, and characterization of practical engineering applications.

The Scientific Committee also encourages authors to present new advanced imaging techniques and processing methods, which can provide new insights into the complex thermofluid-dynamic phenomena, even though not based on laser light sources, such as ultrasound or magnetic resonance imaging.
