ECoMMFiT Seminar Series

The ECoMMFiT Seminar series meets twice a month to discuss about the broad spectrum of research in fluids carried out inside and outside the group. It is a great opportunity for our community (students, postdocs and faculty members) and for visitors to gather and share research thoughts in an informal context. Unless indicated otherwise the seminars take place on Fridays from 10:00 am to 11:00 am in Lab. Room 111 of Department of Mechanical Engineering.
If you are willing to participate, we would be glad to have you giving a seminar and meeting our community. Please feel free to contact us by email.

NOTE: Seminar announcement is done via email. If you would like to be added to our distribution list then please send a request to Lluís Vàzquez.
