Flow Visualization Showcase Submission

Flow Visualization Showcase Submission Form

The Annual Flow Visualization Showcase will provide an opportunity to display computational and/or experimental fluid-dynamics visualizations that support a technical concept.

Important Dates
  • Submission Deadline: 8 June, 2021 at 2000 hrs EDT
  • Author Notification Date: 6 July, 2021
  • Flow Visualization Showcase Date: Monday, 2 Aug, 1230 hrs – 1430 hrs EDT during the 2021 AIAA AVIATION Forum & Exposition, 2-6 August, 2021

Who can submit?
  • Submitting Authors of 2021 AIAA AVIATION Forum: It is open to anyone who submits an abstract to Applied Aerodynamics, Fluid Dynamics, Meshing, Visualization and Computational Environments, or Plasma Dynamics and Lasers. Submissions will be considered for this event whether or not the abstract is accepted. Participants will be emailed to verify interest in showcase participation after abstract notifications are sent.
  • Participants that did not submit an abstract to the 2021 AIAA AVIATION Forum are also welcome to submit to the Flow Visualization Showcase.
What type of flow visualization submissions are sought?
  • Visualization: The flow visualization should enhance the understanding of the flow, rather than be simply an impressive visual display.
  • Video or Images: A still figure/image is acceptable but must include audio narration.
  • Duration: It is recommended that the visualization be 3–5 minutes in length and run on a loop.
  • Audio narration is encouraged. Copyrighted audio in the narration must be properly licensed so that the winner videos can be made available on the AIAA YouTube channel.
What information will be collected?
  • Title
  • Control ID (if submitted to 2021 AIAA AVIATION Forum)
  • Author List
  • Short Abstract
  • Video File Upload (.mp4)

If accepted:
  • Event registration to the 2021 AIAA AVIATION Forum is required in order to participate in the showcase.
  • Session details will be announced to accepted participants.

How are submissions judged?
  • The event will last approximately two hours, during which authors will be assigned a presentation slot to describe their visualizations to attendees and judges.
  • The submissions will be judged and a 1st place award presented in each of the following categories at the conclusion of the event:
    • (1) Most Artistic Flow Visualization
    • (2) Most Quantitatively Descriptive Flow Visualization
    • (3) Most Comprehensive Flow Visualization
  • Each of the three winners will be asked to sign a release form for AIAA for their visualization to be displayed on the AIAA website and YouTube channel.
