The 7th International Conference on Micro and Nano Flows (MNF 2021)

Dear Colleagues,


We are delighted to announce that MNF2021 will take place as an online conference on 24th-26th May 2021.

The MNF2020 conference was postponed due to the current coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak.

Due to restrictions surrounding international travel, the conference is for online participation only.


With kind regards,

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 range

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 is hosted by the Department of Mathematics at Imperial College London, and is taking place as an online conference due to travel restrictions related to the Covid-19 pandemic.

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.
