JFM Symposia China: Hangzhou

The JFM China Symposia visited the second city of the tour at Zhejiang University in Hangzhou. Another action-packed day of scientific talks began with a fitting reference to the foundation of JFM by George Batchelor, courtesy of Keith Moffatt1: “Until 1956 there was no journal that was devoted to fluid dynamics in all its experimental and theoretical aspects, papers in fluid dynamics being widely spread over the literature of engineering, physics and mathematics.


JFM Symposia China: Shenzhen

The first JFM Symposia in China began today in Shenzhen with an opening from the President of Southern University of Science and Technology, Shiyi Chen, praising the prestige and reputation of the Journal of Fluid Mechanics as he welcomed us to the futuristic Shenzhen campus. Publications in JFM from Chinese authors have grown exponentially over recent years, accounting for around 10% of the articles published in 2018, and Professor Chen challenged the researchers present to increase this number even further.…
