How to Submit

The Gallery of Fluid Motion is intended to be a visual record of the aesthetic and science of contemporary fluid mechanics, to be shared both with fellow researchers and the general public. Each year, the submissions are judged for their combination of striking visual qualities and scientific interest and the top-ranked video and poster entries are designated as Milton van Dyke Awardees or Gallery Winners, which are subsequently published in APS' new journal Physical Review Fluids. Please note that the Gallery of Fluid Motion is not a venue for technical posters (which can be submitted through the normal abstract submission), nor student posters.

Gallery of Fluid Motion Submission Process:

i) All entries to the Gallery must create a submission entry (title, authors, affiliations, contact information and copyright permissions) by September 15, 2016 to enable the organizers to complete the program listing for the meeting.

ii) Authors must agree to make their entry available to the public under the Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial 4.0 International License.

iii) For video entries, the final video for display at the meeting will need to be uploaded to the account by October 6, 2016. The video may use any codec format and resolution (1920 x 1080 recommended), but must meet the following guidelines:
a) Maximum length of 3:00 minutes. Longer entries will be truncated abruptly at the maximum length.
b) The video must use a black title screen with white text stating the video title, contributor names, and affiliations. See example title screen.
c) NEW Audio can be included as part of the video, but will not be played at the meeting due to interference with nearby exhibits. The judges will be able to listen to the audio however, during the judging process. Please note: copyrighted music or other audio must be properly licensed so that the video can be made available under the Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial 4.0 International License and hosted on third-party services such as YouTube, Vimeo, etc.

iv) For poster entries, the authors are required to print the poster and bring IT to the meeting for display. Posters should contain photographs and or graphics along with brief explanatory text and names and affiliations of all authors. Multiple entries by the same author are permitted, provided different images/artwork are used. Details of the format and logistics for hanging the poster at the meeting are provided at the local organizing website. If the authors would like to create and share a permanent record of their entry, a final PDF can be uploaded through the submission account up until November 30, 2016. Note that the authors are still required to print and bring the poster to the meeting themselves, as the upload is purely for archival purposes. The Gallery organizers will not print or hang any poster entries submitted electronically, and responsibility for display at the meeting rests with the authors.

v) For videos, and optionally uploaded poster submissions, a permanently citable DOI record will be created that can be used to reference the work.
