The 7th International Conference on Micro and Nano Flows (MNF 2020)

Dear Colleagues,


We are sorry to announce that the MNF2020 conference has been postponed due to the current coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak.


Preparations for the conference were well underway, and we can only apologise to the invited speakers and to all those who had hoped to attend. Please rest assured that the conference will take place at some point in the near future, with new dates to be announced once we have a clearer idea of when it will be practical for us to reschedule.


With kind regards,


Demetrios T. Papageorgiou (Chair of Local Organising Committee)

Martin Cooper (Secretary to the Local Organising Committee)

The International Micro and Nano Flows Conference series originated at Strathclyde University in 2006 and was followed by meetings at Brunel University London in 2009, the Aristotle University Thessaloniki in 2011, University College London in 2014, the Politechnico Di Milano in 2016 and the Georgia Institute of Technology in 2018. Since its inaugural run the conference is now well established internationally with its unique  

of topics in thermofluids engineering and biomedical and bioprocess engineering in the field of small scale flows. The Conference Committee has identified that the challenges faced by engineers and designers of devices at the micro to nano scale are to a large extent similar, whether these relate to heat transfer and thermal management of systems or biomedical applications. 
The conference is organised over three days starting with a plenary lecture covering the latest developments in micro-nano scale flows that relate and link applications in thermofluids and biomedical engineering. Keynote lectures then cover the Conference Series Key Themes of adiabatic flows and single phase heat transfer, two phase flow and heat transfer and flows that relate to biomedical engineering. Sessions that cover all the above plus the particular challenges and latest developments in the design of micro-scale devices complete the conference.

The 7th International Conference on Micro and Nano Flows will take place at Imperial College London and will be hosted by the Department of Mathematics.

Imperial College London is an internationally top ranked university with a focus on science, engineering, medicine and business. Imperial is home to the greatest concentration of high-impact research of any major UK university, and is renown for the application of its skills to industry and enterprise. Imperial is home to 17,000 students and 8,000 staff and over 6,700 degrees are awarded annually by the university. The main campus of Imperial is located in South Kensington. It forms part of Prince Albert’s vision for science and industry culminating in the Great Exhibition of 1851 that in addition to several constituent parts of Imperial College, led to the creation of national landmarks including the Victoria and Albert Museum, the Science Museum, the Natural History Museum and the Royal Albert Hall. All these landmarks are adjacent to Imperial and all museums can be entered free of charge providing the visitor with a unique and expansive cultural experience. South Kensington is also within walking distance from Hyde Park and Holland Park as well as numerous bustling neighbourhoods including Chelsea, Holland Park, Knightsbridge and Notting Hill, and is in close proximity to central London and its wide cultural, culinary and shopping experiences.
