The Institute of Geophysics of the Polish Academy of Sciences, in collaboration with the IAHR Committee on Experimental Methods and Instrumentation and the IAHR Poland Young Professional Network is organizing a webinar focused on EXPERIMENTAL METHODS AND LABORATORY INSTRUMENTATION IN HYDRAULICS.

Through keynote lectures and technical sessions the webinar will promote experimental methods, instruments, measurement techniques, and data analysis routines for hydro-environment studies at the laboratory scale.

To present their work, authors have to submit an extended 2-page abstract, which will be reviewed by the International Scientific Committee.

The proceedings are available in the Publications of the Institute of Geophysics, Polish Academy of Sciences.

Selected works will be suggested for the publication on the Special Issue “Experimental Methods and Instrumentation in Hydraulics” on the journal Acta Geophysica (IF 1.395). All the papers considered for publication will be subject to the review process according to the Journal requirements.

Webinar Themes

Specific topics of interest include (but are not restricted to):

  • Velocimetry (Acoustic-based, Laser-Based, Optical, Pitot, HWA, Micropropellers)
  • Pressure measurements (Transducers, From velocity data)
  • Density and concentration of single- and multi-phase flows (Optical and fluorescence, Laser based, Sampling)
  • Interfaces, Free surface phenomena (waves, gas and heat exchange), Thermography, X-Ray

The registration is free of charge. Take your ticket.

Presentation guidelines

The time allocated for each presentation is 5 minutes, while the discussion will be done after a few presentations, in the Q&A part.
If possible, prepare your slides with 16:9 format ratio. Widely used sans serif fonts such as Arial or Helvetica is recommended for clarity and compatibility, and a font size of at least 18 points for body text and 26 to 40 points for headings.
Suggested strucutre: One slide with the objectives and motivation of the study; one slide with methodology; max 4 slides for results and conclusions.
The focus should be on the results and methodology as the audience is expected to have an overview of the abstracts.
