The UK Fluids Network is a set of Special Interest Groups (SIGs) with several having interests in droplets. The SIGs organise meetings open to UK and non-UK attendees all over the year. This page provides information about the meetings to come.

    Acoustofluidics and Olympics 2019

    • Date: 26 and 27 June 2019
    • Location: Queen’s Building, Bristol
    • Website
    • Description:
      This meeting will bring together the UK and international research communities in ultrasonics, acoustics and fluids in a two day event full of interesting talks, technical demonstrations (i.e.the Olympics) and mind-challenging discussions.

      The remit of the meeting covers both the fundamentals and applications of acoustofluidic systems, such as bio-sampling, microanalysis, microfluidic diagnosis, filtering and container-less processing. Talks on novel acoustofluidic applications are particularly welcome. Finally, we would also like to cover devices and systems related to acoustofluidic devices, such as sensors and pumps.

      We are looking for potential speakers and demonstrators, if you would like to do a presentation or prepare a technical demonstration please indicate so when you register.

    Droplet and flow interactions with bio-inspired and smart surfaces

    • Date: 15 September 2019
    • Location: Durham University
    • Organisers: Dr. Halim Kusumaatmaja and Dr. Ben Xu
    • Registration Fee: None
    • Description:
      The UKGN SIG “Droplet and flow interactions with bio-inspired and smart surfaces” will be organising a meeting on Sunday 15th September 2019 in Durham.
