Welcome to Droplets 2021

Liquid droplets are important in many natural phenomena as well as for a broad variety of industrial processes. The aim of the 3-day international conference is to bring together physicists, chemists, mathematicians and engineers working on droplets in the broad sense: from pure to complex fluids; from impact to evaporation; in aerosols, emulsions or on surfaces; covering experimental, theoretical, and industrial perspectives.

Registration is open

Online event

Because of the current situation with the Covid-19 pandemic around the world, Droplets 2021 will be held in an online format.

Conference schedule

The workshop builds upon the successful Droplets Conference Series with workshops held in 2013, 2015, 2017 and 2019, and will consist of plenary lectures, keynote lectures, oral presentations and poster sessions. The programme will be shaped to stimulate group discussions and informal exchanges.
