Scientific Committee

The 10th Southern California Flow Physics Symposium (So Cal Fluids X) will be held at University of California, Irvine, on Saturday, April 9, 2016. This conference aims to bring together researchers from universities throughout Southern California, working in all areas of fluid dynamics, for a one-day exchange of ideas in an informal and collaborative atmosphere. In order to promote education and exposure, talks are invited from graduate students and postdocs. Faculty and undergraduate students are highly encouraged to attend. All universities in Southern California are welcome to participate.

If you have questions, please direct them to Dimitri Papamoschou (


Contributed papers are limited to 10 minutes with 2 additional minutes for discussion. This is followed by 1 minute for transition to the next paper and introduction of the next speaker. During the talk, the monitor will indicate at 8 minutes that the speaker has to finish in 2 minutes. At 10 minutes, it will indicate that the speaker's presentation time is over. At 12 minutes, it will indicate that transition to the next speaker must occur.


  • Presentations must run within their allotted time.   If a presentation is somehow delayed before of technical problems, it still needs to finish by its end time.
  • Each session will have a volunteer (identified by yellow strip on name tag) who will help the session chair keep track of the time and assist with any technical issues.
  • If a speaker does not show up,  take a break until the next scheduled talk.  Do not change the program schedule.
  • Speakers from the same research group:  please load your presentations on the same laptop to minimize transition time.

The symposium rooms are well equipped to handle the typical presentation inputs.    A list of the capabilities can be found here:
