The National Society for Fluid Mechanics and Fluid Power (http://www.me.iitb.ac.in/~fmfp/) is a registered Society that has been functioning quite successfully over the past 42 years. One of the Society’s main activities is to conduct the annual Fluid Mechanics and Fluid Power (FMFP) Conference. Once in four years, the conference is organized at the international level. The aim of the conference is to bring together national and international experts on a common platform and share the state of the art on various topics related to fluid mechanics and fluid power. The previous editions of the international conference were held at IIT Delhi, IIT Madras and IIT Bombay respectively. The next international conference will be held at IIT Kanpur from December 12th to December 14th, 2014.
