NEW CONFERENCE in Prague, Czech Republic
Flow-induced vibrations and noise continue to cause problems in a wide
range of industries from Civil Engineering and Marine Structures to
Power generation and Chemical Processing. This interdisciplinary
meeting aims to bring together researchers working on the mechanisms
responsible for vibrations with those in industry who are faced with
either avoiding the problem through good design or finding solutions to
specific problems. This series of FIV conferences began at Keswick,
England in 1973, focussing on the needs of the nuclear industry.
Subsequent conferences have evolved into major international events
with a continually wider scope of papers in the field of fluid-
structure interactions. The 7th International conference was held in
Lucern, Switzerland in 2000. The last 8th International Conference on
FLOW-INDUCED VIBRATIONS was in Paris, France at the Ecole
Polytechnique, in 2004 with about 200 participants from all continents.
Following this conference, it was decided by the scientific committee
of this series that the next meeting will be held in Prague, in 2008.
