UK Fluids Network Newsletter
Issue 19 (13/7/18)
Formatted version attached

Welcome to Issue 19 of the UK Fluids Network newsletter, a regular 
summary of the Network's activities and news from the UK Fluids 

To receive this newsletter, please sign up to the mailing list at 

We welcome your input and comments, or suggestions for new content in 
the newsletter – please use the form on https://fluids.ac.uk/connect or 
email info at fluids.ac.uk.

1. Website

GDPR and the missing fluids researchers (Repeat)
In order to comply with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), 
which came into operation on 25 May, we emailed everyone who was 
registered on the UKFN website beforehand, to obtain their consent to 
display their personal data on the Directory page and, by extension, to 
list them as SIG members (which relies on having registered).
We had a surprisingly good response, with approximately 800 out of 1100 
users either clicking on the email link or confirming directly. However, 
this means that the missing 300 people will not appear in Directory 
searches and – perhaps more visibly – will be absent from the member 
lists of SIGs they belong to, until we have received their consent.
If you have not given your consent you can restore your visibility on 
the UKFN website:
• Either click on your version of the link that was emailed to you 
previously (it is of the form 
‘https://fluids.ac.uk/users/terms/accept/123’), whereupon you will be 
taken to the UKFN home page and your response acknowledged;
• Or email Nick Daish directly at info at fluids.ac.uk.

2. UK Fluids Network mailing list (Repeat)

Important: the mailing list operates independently of the list of 
registered users, i.e. you will remain on the mailing list, and continue 
to receive this monthly newsletter and the weekly bulletin (see below) 
whether or not you gave consent on personal data use, since the mailing 
list only requires your email address, which is not made public.
As noted above, we have started a weekly bulletin, which is sent to the 
mailing list each Friday afternoon. It is a useful way to circulate 
time-critical messages (in addition to Twitter) on a weekly basis in 
between the monthly newsletters.
Please send any items for inclusion in the weekly bulletin by Friday 
noon at the latest by emailing info at fluids.ac.uk. Posts made to the 
‘All’ mailing list by members will not be circulated directly, but the 
contents will be added to the weekly bulletin.
Posts will be repeated in the regular monthly newsletter, if still 

3. UK Fluids Network photo/video competition #4 

We are pleased to announce a new photo/video competition.

This competition will not have a specific theme, so all fluids-related 
photos and videos are eligible.

As ever, the best photo and video will each receive a prize of £200, and 
the winners are chosen with a combination of popular vote and panel of 
judges. Full details may be found on https://fluids.ac.uk/competition/.

The closing date is 31 July 2018.

4. ERCOFTAC Osborne Reynolds Day 2018 

Registration is free (https://tinyurl.com/or18-final-extn-register) but 
there are a limited number of places left.

The winner of the prize for best oral presentation at Osborne Reynolds 
will be nominated for inclusion in the pan-European Da Vinci Prize 
competition, which is held as part of the ERCOFTAC Autumn Festival, 
(https://www.ercoftac.org/events/ercoftac_autumn_fest/), this year 
taking place in Warsaw, 18-19 October 2018.

5. UK Fluids Conference 2018 

Registration remains open, but the early bird rate is no longer 

Further news will be publicized in the newsletter, on the UKFN website 
and via Twitter.

6. Short Research Visits (https://fluids.ac.uk/srv)

Any UK fluids researcher – PhD student, postdoc, PI, industrial 
collaborator – can apply for a Short Research Visit grant to spend 1-2 
weeks with another researcher or group, and UKFN will cover up to £1000 
of your travel, subsistence and accommodation expenses. Previous visits 
have been used to develop a mathematical model, share an experimental 
facility or advance a numerical technique. The SRV page on the website 
contains full details of how to apply, plus summaries of all SRVs and 
reports on completed visits.

The next deadline for SRV proposals is 31 July 2018.

7. ERCOFTAC conferences and workshops
