Particle-laden flows span scales ranging from the microscopic fluid-structure interactions observed in cellular biology and microsystems, to the large-scale transport of sediments by turbulent environmental flows and engineering processes. Fundamental to understanding these processes are computational methods and numerical techniques, including LBM, IBM, FCM, DPD, SPH, SD,… The leading experts in the computational methods will share the state-of-the-art progress and compare techniques. Additionally, leading experimental researchers will also attend to provide new challenges and ground discussion in the application to physical phenomena.
