The Fourteenth Annual Symposium of the Burgers Program for Fluid Dynamics

The Fourteenth Annual Symposium of the Burgers Program will take place on Wednesday, November 15, 2017 from 1 - 5 p.m. in rooms 1107 and 1111 of the Jeong H. Kim Engineering Building. Fuqing Zhang (Director of the Center for Advanced Data Assimilation and Predictability Techniques, Pennsylvania State University) will be the Burgers Lecturer. Other speakers will be Daniel Quinn (University of Virginia), Daniel Tam (Delft Technical University, The Netherlands) and Raghu Murtugudde (University of Maryland). As in previous years, we will have a poster session displaying the work of graduate students and post-docs and a reception from 5 - 6 p.m. following the symposium.

Our Mission...

Inspired by the intellectual heritage of J. M. Burgers, the mission of the Burgers Program is to enhance the quality and international visibility of fluid dynamics research and educational programs at the University of Maryland with the help of an endowed Burgers Fund. Fluid dynamics in this context is viewed to include a broad range of dynamics, from nanoscales to geophysical scales, in simple and complex fluids.

Examples of Burgers Program Activities...

  1. Providing an environment and precedence for knowledge exchange and networking within the fluid dynamics community on the University of Maryland campus.
  2. Maintaining a close collaboration with the J. M. Burgers Centre in The Netherlands.
  3. Creating and building a Burgers Fund.

The Burgers Program is supported by faculty from the College of Computer, Mathematical and Natural Sciences and the A. J. Clark School of Engineering.
