Proceedings publication: The proceedings of the meeting will be published in International Journal of Modern Physics C (IJMPC). More info on this coming soon.
Website Compromised: The DSFD 2018 website was temporarily compromised due to a WordPress security issue, and certain people (from mobile browsers; from certain countries) were redirected. We apologies for any inconvenience.
Deadline extension: The abstract registration deadline has been extended to April 22, acceptance letters will be sent out before April 30, and early registration has been extended to May 6.
Poster award: Intel will provide a state of the art high performance laptop featuring Optane technology (not yet available in stores) as an award for the best poster.
The DSFD series of conferences originated with the 1986 Los Alamos conference organised by Gary D. Doolen. Since that time, the DSFD conferences have emerged as the premiere forum for researchers in the field, and many exciting new discoveries in lattice models of fluid dynamics have been first announced at DSFD conferences.
Topics emphasised at these meetings 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.
