NICFD 2018 will bring together researchers and scientists from various application areas who are pioneering theoretical, numerical and experimental advancements in the fluid dynamics of compressible flows of fluids for which the ideal gas law does not apply.

The growing interest towards NICFD in the last decade, especially for its advanced applications in the field of propulsion and power, has determined an impulse in research, and the purpose of this conference is to promote the exchange of information among the quite diverse community, whose interests span from the fundamentals to the industrial applications.

The conference fee amounts to 300 €. The fee includes the catering at the conference and the conference dinner at the 4th of October.

Based on further review, authors will be requested to submit a full paper after the conference for archival publication (Springer Lecture Notes in Mechanical Engineering).
