What is the Gallery of Fluid Motion?

The Gallery of Fluid Motion consists of posters and videos submitted by attendees illustrating the science — and often also the beauty — of fluid motion. Both computational and experimental entries are encouraged. Poster and video entries must not duplicate one another.
