EUROMECH – European Mechanics Society – is an international non-governmental non-profit scientific organization. The objective of the Society is to engage in all activities intended to promote in Europe the development of mechanics as a branch of science and engineering. Mechanics deals with motion, flow and deformation of matter, be it fluid or solid, under the action of applied forces, and with any associated phenomena. The society is governed by the Council whose members are being elected according to rules set in Statutes. Activities within the field of mechanics range from fundamental research on the behaviour of fluids and solids to applied research in engineering. The approaches used comprise theoretical, analytical, computational and experimental methods.
The 9th Euromech Fluid Mechanics Conference will be held at the University of Rome “Tor Vergata” from 9 to 13 September 2012. This conference is the nineth in the series started in Cambridge in 1991 and continued in Warsaw (1994), Göttingen (1997), Eindhoven (2000), Toulouse (2003), Stockholm (2006), Manchester (2008) and Munchen (2010). The conference aims at covering the whole field of Fluid Dynamics, comprising from most fundamental aspects to recent applications. It provides a world-wide forum for scientists to meet each other and exchange information of all areas of fluid mechanics.
