Poster Sessions & Student Poster Competition

The Technical Poster Session and the Student Poster Competition are for APS-submitted posters only, and is distinct from the Gallery of Fluid Motion posters and videos. Posters with mainly artistic content are recommended to be submitted to the Gallery of Fluid Motion. Poster Presentations will still be available in the two traditional formats:

  • Technical Poster Session, and
  • Student Poster Competition.

The Gallery of Fluid Motion poster and video submissions will also be available as usual.

Technical Poster Session: The Technical Poster Session of the DFD Meeting is open to all participants by selecting the poster presentation option when submitting a contributed abstract. Entries submitted by students are further eligible for the Student Poster Competition that constitutes a specific opportunity for graduate and undergraduate students to enhance their presentation skills and to build their professional network.

Student Poster Competition: Student Poster Competition is for APS-submitted posters only, and is distinct from the Gallery of Fluid Motion posters and videos. Posters with mainly artistic content are recommended to be submitted to the Gallery of Fluid Motion. Those posters designated as Student Posters will be judged and awarded 1st and 2nd Prize for “Best Poster” in several categories. Winners in each category will receive awards and recognition during the meeting and will be highlighted in the DFD Newsletter.

A first author may submit an oral presentation OR a poster, but NOT both.

Cash prizes of $250 for first place and $150 for second place will be awarded in each category.
