Save the Date – NETL 2018 Workshop on Multiphase Flow Science

Dear Colleagues,

Please "SAVE THE DATE" for the U.S. Department of Energy, National Energy Technology Laboratory’s (NETL) 2018 Workshop on Multiphase Flow Science. Pending final approval, this year’s workshop will take place on Tuesday, August 7 through Thursday, August 9, 2018, in Houston, TX. We are excited to announce co-sponsorship of the workshop with the University of Houston and Louisiana State University this year. The workshop will be held at the University of Houston’s Student Center. We welcome the collaboration and support of these two excellent academic institutions with their well-known research programs in multiphase flow science and industry collaborations.

This event brings together international leaders from industry, academia and government laboratories working in multiphase flow sciences to discuss current research projects and discuss future research and development needs in Multiphase Flow Science including gas-solid, liquid-solid, gas-liquid, and gas-solid-liquid multiphase flow. Industrial presenters are encouraged to attend and to share their experiences and specific applications in this area.

[Tuesday August 7 and Wednesday August 8, 2018 will be dedicated to technical presentations. On Thursday August 9, 2018, Workshop sponsors will provide demonstration and training sessions new MFiX Software Suite offerings including the new MFiX-PIC model scheduled for Summer 2018 release.]

Call for Presentations: You are invited to submit a brief abstract for a 15-minute presentation to be provided during the technical sessions on August 7 and 8, 2018. Abstracts for Posters are welcomed as well. Please submit your abstract by June 1, 2018 to The final agenda will follow by June 30, 2018. Due to the limited number of time slots available for presentations, the organizing committee may ask the presentation author(s) to provide a poster in lieu of a PowerPoint presentation.

The conference will cover topics in:

  • Fundamental research in multiphase flows
  • Advancements in CFD model development for multiphase flows
  • Application of multiphase CFD to industrial systems such as gasification, combustion, fossil fuel extraction and utilization, chemical processes, etc.
  • Novel measurement techniques in multiphase flows
  • Application of uncertainty quantification techniques in multiphase flow simulation
  • Optimization and reduced order modeling of multiphase systems

The official invitation including costs, lodging information and a registration website will be forthcoming soon. Please set these dates aside and register promptly when the registration link becomes available. If you have any questions or require more information, feel free to contact us at
