<p>Tom Crawford (<a href="https://tomrocksmaths.com/">https://tomrocksmaths.com/</a>) has released the first of a new series of videos commissioned by UKFN featuring past photo/video competition winners. This month, Luke Muscutt of the University of Southampton talks about 'How Plesiosaurs Ruled the Ocean using their Flippers'. Watch the video on YouTube at <a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=chfG229nLZI">https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=chfG229nLZI</a>. </p>
<p>Tom is also producing a series of video shorts on projects presented at APS-DFD in Denver, from a collaboration with Nicole Sharpe of FYFD (<a href="http://fyfluiddynamics.com/">http://fyfluiddynamics.com/</a>):</p>

<p><strong>From:</strong> Nick Daish, 11/4/19<br /><strong>Subject:</strong> UK Fluids Conference - abstract deadline extended to 30 April</p>
<p>The Organising Committee for the 2019 UK Fluids Conference (Cambridge 27-29 August, <a href="http://ukfluids2019.bpi.cam.ac.uk/">http://ukfluids2019.bpi.cam.ac.uk/</a>) send the following message:</p>
<p style="padding-left: 30px;">'We have had a great response to the UK Fluids Meeting 2019, with over 120 abstracts already submitted. The meeting is shaping up to be an excellent event, and we have a series of outstanding keynote speakers. We will be in touch in early May about abstracts, but <strong>we have decided to extend the abstract submission deadline to 30th April</strong> as we are aware that a number of people missed the original deadline for submission of their abstract.'</p>

<p><strong>(1) New ERCOFTAC SIG #49 Non-Ideal Compressible Fluid Dynamics (NICFD)</strong></p>
<p>A new ERCOFTAC Special Interest Group has been launched, focusing on non-ideal compressible fluid dynamics (NICFD).</p>
<p style="padding-left: 30px;">'NICFD deals with flows of dense vapours, supercritical fluids and two-phase fluids, whose properties significantly depart from those of ideal gases. NICFD flows occur in numerous heterogeneous industrial applications, such as unconventional turbomachinery (ORC turbines, scCO2 compressors), combustors operating with supercritical fluids, heat pumping systems, and in many chemical processes.'</p>
<p>The new SIG's home page is at: <a href="https://www.ercoftac.org/special_interest_groups/49_non-ideal_compressible_fluid_dynamics_nicfd_/">https://www.ercoftac.org/special_interest_groups/49_non-ideal_compressible_fluid_dynamics_nicfd_/</a> </p>
