Complex Motion in Fluids 2019

Welcome to the 9th international Summer School  Complex Motion in Fluids organized by Technical University of Denmark in collaboration with University of Cambridge (UK), Ecole Polytechnique (F), and University of Twente (NL).

Program (pdf) and abstracts of 31 contributed talks (pdf, 50 MB) and 40 posters (pdf, 62 MB)
The topics for 2019 include microscale acoustofluidics, acoustic tweezers, slippery surfaces, micro swimmers, and biomechanics, and they are presented by nine international lecturers each giving a 1-hour and a 1½-hour lecture (see the preliminary program). Traditionally, all attendees (PhD students, postdocs and researchers) are presenting their own research either in a 12-minutes contributed talk or at one of the two poster sessions.

The venue: How to reach Kysthusene from Copenhagen (pdf)
This year, we have moved from Krogerup to Kysthusene (, a resort 2 km outside the fishing village of Gilleleje situated at the north coast of Zealand, 60 km from Copenhagen. The venue can be reached by a 2-hour train ride from Copenhagen International Airport as explained here (transport pdf)
