History

Short history

The symposium commenced in 2006 as 'Mini-symposium on Numerical Analysis of Fluid Flow' by PawelKosinski during ICNAAM 2006 in Crete, Greece. The venue was in the cosy town of Hersonissos. Our symposium was a small one with only one session, however, it has gained interest among other participants of ICNAAM.

The year after it continued as 'Mini-symposium on Numerical Analysis of Fluid Flow and Heat Transfer' during ICNAAM 2007 in Corfu. It has involved three sessions that have constituted an important part of the whole International Conference of Numerical Analysis and Applied Mathematics. It was the first time when the papers presented during the conference had been printed in the AIP (American Institute of Physics) Proceedings.

Due to increasing interest from both the active participants and the audience, in 2008 the meeting followed as The 3rd Symposium on Numerical Analysis of Fluid Flow and Heat Transfer. The place was a magnificient island of Kos where the conference centre was located only a few kilometres from Kos town. In this way the event became the biggest symposium organized at ICNAAM 2008.

The 4th Symposium on Numerical Analysis of Fluid Flow and Heat Transfer was organized close to Rethymno (Crete) in September 2009. It was another important event with many interesting presentations and positive feedback from the audience. For the first time selected papers from this symposium were published in a special issue of the Applied Mathematics and Computation.

The meeting after, the 5th Symposium on Numerical Analysis of Fluid Flow and Heat Transfer, hosted two important events: an invited talk by Professor E.F. Toro and a special workshop on numerical methods in multiphase flows organized by Professor M. Darwish. This symposium was held in Rhodes, 2010.

The venue of the 6th Symposium on Numerical Analysis of Fluid Flow and Heat Transfer was Halkidiki. The symposium hosted an invited talk by Professor M. Ben-Artziand a special workshop on pressure-based coupling algorithm organized by Professor M. Darwish.

The 7th Symposium on Numerical Analysis of Fluid Flow and Heat Transfer took a place in Kos during 2012. This symposium involved 14 sessions and three special events: an invited talk by Professor G. Warnecke, a plenary lecture by Professor M. Darwishand a keynote lecture by Dr D. Lakehal.

The 8th Symposium on Numerical Analysis of Fluid Flow and Heat Transfer - Numerical Fluids Symposium 2013, took a place in Rhodes. The symposium involved three invited lectures given by Professor Remi Abgrall, Professor Fadl Moukalled and Professor Sergei Sazhin.

In 2014, the 9th International Symposium on Numerical Analysis of Fluid Flow and Heat Transfer - Numerical Fluids 2014, chaired by Dia Zeidan, took a place in Rhodes. The Numerical Fluids 2014 received a very large number of papers for oral presentation. After a review process that meets the expected high standard of the symposium, thirty eight solicited papers have been accepted for presentation. The symposium final program incorporated five invited lectures given by Professor Paul Tucker, Professor Evgeniy Romenski, Professor Lyazid Djenidi, Professor Maria Vittoria Salvetti and Professor Bendiks Jan Boersma. For Numerical Fluids 2014, the symposium authors have been asked to submit an expanded version of their paper through a review procedure by the editorial board for publication in Applied Mathematics and Computation journal.

The 10th Symposium on Numerical Analysis of Fluid Flow and Heat Transfer - Numerical Fluids 2015, took a place in Rhodes again. The symposium involved two invited lectures given by Professor Evgeny Timofeev and Professor Sergey V. Utyuzhnikov. Selected authors of Numerical Fluids 2015 have been invited to submit an expanded version of their paper through a review procedure by the editorial board for publication in International Journal of Numerical Methods for Heat & Fluid Flow.
