Dear Colleague,

Apologies for cross-posting.

You are cordially invited to participate in the 24th International 
Conference on Discrete Simulation of Fluid Dynamics (DSFD 2015) which 
will take place in Edinburgh, UK on 13-17 July 2015. *The abstract 
submission deadline is 16 February 2015*. Please find all details on the 
conference web page www.dsfd2015.ed.ac.uk/home. You can also follow the 
conference on Twitter for updates and related information: @DSFD_Conference

Edinburgh will be /extremely busy/ during the conference. Please 
consider reserving accommodation now, even before the abstract review 
decision - most providers allow cancellation at no cost.

Thanks to the generous support of NVIDIA, the Committees of DSFD 2015 
are pleased to offer an *award of one NVIDIA Tesla K40 GPGPU* (without a 
hosting system). In order to ensure the greatest scientific benefit to 
the community, we will award this to the best short research proposal 
submitted by a young researcher (defined as a PhD/masters student or an 
untenured post-doctoral researcher). The proposer must attend DSFD 2015 
to be eligible. The proposals will be assessed by members of the 
Committees based on the scientific and computational impact of the 
proposed work. The deadline for submission of the proposal is the close 
of regular registrations (1 June 2015).

Topics emphasised at the conference include lattice Boltzmann schemes, 
dissipative particle dynamics, smoothed-particle hydrodynamics, direct 
simulation Monte Carlo, molecular dynamics, quantum Monte Carlo methods, 
multiparticle collision dynamics and hybrid methods. There will be 
sessions on advances in both theory and computation, on engineering 
applications of discrete fluid algorithms, and on fundamental issues in 
mathematical modelling, numerical analysis, statistical mechanics, 
kinetic theory and hydrodynamics and their applications in microscopic, 
nanoscale and multiscale physics for emerging technologies. Other topics 
of interest include theoretical and experimental work on interfacial 
phenomena, droplets, free-surface flow, and micro- and nanofluidics.

There will be an opportunity to submit papers for the proceedings. Each 
proceedings submission will be rigorously peer-reviewed.

*Important dates*
Abstract submission deadline: 16 February 2015
Abstract review decision: 9 March 2015
Early registration deadline: 2 April 2015
Regular registration deadline: 1 June 2015
