CALL FOR PAPERS:
The Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) Society of Canada is pleased to announce that its 24th Annual Conference will be held in Kelowna, BC, Canada, from Sunday, June 26, 2016 until Wednesday, June 29, 2016. The conference will be located at the Delta Grand Okanagan Hotel and Conference Center with accommodation available either at the venue, surrounding hotels, or at UBC Okanagan campus. Technical sessions will span three days and will feature two keynote speakers. The conference will also feature a student paper competition and banquet. The banquet will be held on Tuesday, June 28, 2016.

SCOPE:
The goal of the CFD Society of Canada is to promote computational fluid dynamics and to provide a framework for communication and collaboration between researchers, developers and practitioners, in industry, government and academia. The annual conferences draw together researchers in CFD to highlight recent advances and challenges encountered in a broad spectrum of application areas and to facilitate scientific and technical exchange. Paper submissions are encouraged in all topics of current interest in the field of CFD. Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

• Multiphase and free surface flows
• Reacting flows and combustion
• Flows in porous media
• Environmental and biological flows
• Turbulence and turbulence modelling
• Aero-elasticity and aero-acoustics
• Algorithm development
• Mesh generation and adaptation
• Error estimation and control

Welcome

Welcome to the website of the CFD Society of Canada! The CFD Society of Canada was established as a non-profit organization in September 1992. Its goal is to promote computational fluid dynamics and to provide a framework for communication and collaboration between researchers, developers and practitioners, in industry, government and academia.

23rd Annual Conference of the CFD Society of Canada

The 2015 conference of the CFD Society of Canada was held in Waterloo (June 7-10, 2015) at Wilfred Laurier University. We were co-located and in the program of the AMMCS-CAIMS Congress. For the full list of papers see the link to the program on the conference website: http://www.math.uwaterloo.ca/~cfd2015/

The CFDSC would like to thank all who participated at the annual meeting. Further, very special thanks to Prof. Lilia Krivodonova and Dr. Lucian Ivan from the Department of Applied Mathematics, University of Waterloo.

Message from the President

Date: June 11, 2015

Dear Members of the CFD Society of Canada,

Thank you for your enthusiastic participation in this year's conference.

What a success it was!

For those of you who did not attend, we met over the last few days in Waterloo (June 7-10, 2015) at Wilfred Laurier University.

We were co-located and in the program of the AMMCS-CAIMS Congress. For the full list of papers see the link to the program on the conference website: http://www.math.uwaterloo.ca/~cfd2015/

Many thanks to our superb conference organizers in Waterloo:
Prof. Lilia Krivodonova and Dr. Lucian Ivan from the Department of Applied Mathematics, University of Waterloo.

Many thanks also to our Plenary speakers, Prof. Rémi Abgrall from the University of Zürich and Prof. Paul Fischer from the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign. The two talks were very complementary in nature and provided a wide range of interesting issues in algorithmic, mathematical and application areas of CFD.

Congratulations to our award winners:

Student Paper competition:

1st prize
Amirreza Rouhi - Queen's University
A Dynamic Subfilter-scale Stress Model for Large Eddy Simulations Based on Physical Flow Scales
And

2nd prize
Noel Chalmers – University of Waterloo
A Characteristic-based CFL Number for the Discontinuous Galerkin Method on Triangular Meshes

Congratulations to all the students and postdoctoral scientists who contributed greatly to the quality of the conference.

We also thank our sponsors: Bombardier, Pratt & Whitney Canada, CD-Adapco and Applied CCM for their support of the conference. Their presence at the conference also enhanced the quality of the discussions.

At this conference, yesterday, on June 10th, we held our Annual General Meeting. Most of the meeting was devoted to my President's report on the Board of Directors activities on behalf of the Society this past year. The procedures we went through to continue our society under the new not-for profit act of Canada were described and the implied changes in the new by-law were outlined. The new by-law is posted on the website here (under About Us). The financial report of Treasurer Carlos Lange still shows us in a healthy financial state. The last part of the AGM was devoted to elections to the Board:

Dr. Kurt Sermeus, from Bombardier, was elected to the Board as an industry representative. He will replace outgoing and longtime Board member Dr. Hong Yang from Bombardier. Many thanks to Hong for all of his service, in particular for sponsorship and student awards.

PhD student Abbas Ghasemi, from University of Waterloo, was elected to the Board as a student representative. He replaces Jean-Christophe Veilleux who is now studying at Caltech in the US. Many thanks to Jean-Christophe for his very professional service to the Board.
Congratulations to Kurt and Abbas.

Lastly, we announced that the 2016 CFDSC Conference will be held in Kelowna, BC. Prof. Joshua Brinkerhoff of the University of British Columbia, Okanagan will be organizing the 24th annual conference in collaboration with the Canadian Society of Mechanical Engineers (CSME) as we hold our conferences together in 2016 as we did last year in 2014. Set your calendars for June 26-29, 2016 and see you there!

Sincerely,
Catherine Mavriplis
President, CFD Society of Canada.
