Scope of the Conference

Advances in CFD and computing power have made CFD an attractive analysis and design tool for many industries. The Conference encourages and promotes collaborative research by bringing experts from academia, industry and government to discuss current and future issues in the development and application of CFD. Contributions from all sectors are solicited, across the full spectrum of CFD research and applications, including but not limited to:

  • Automotive
  • Aerospace
  • Aero-acoustics
  • Algorithms
  • Atmospheric and environmental flows
  • Bio-fluid mechanics
  • Combustion
  • Fluid-structure interactions
  • Free surface flows
  • Heat and mass transfer
  • Industrial applications
  • Marine hydrodynamics
  • Multi-phase flows
  • Non-Newtonian flows
  • Ocean engineering
  • Turbulence modeling

Conference Venue

CFD2021 will be held online on Zoom Webinar. All presentations will be live. Presenters are required to have good network connections.

Tentative Program

  • Keynote lectures (speakers TBA)
  • Special sessions on CFD in ocean engineering and marine hydrodynamics
  • Student paper competition
  • Panel discussions (please submit suggested panels by April 30, 2021)

Extended Abstract/Paper Submission

The extended abstract and the full-length paper are in the same format and the template can be downloaded from the conference website. The full-length paper should not exceed 8 pages. The extended abstract, limited to 3 pages, should include:

  • Introduction, providing the brief background and the objective(s) of the paper.
  • Approach, describing how the objectives are met.
  • Results, showing major results using figures and/or tables.
  • Main references.

The extended abstract and the full-length paper in PDF format are to be sent to the conference email: engrcfd2021@mun.ca.


The official languages for CFD2021 will be English and French. Papers and presentations will be accepted in either language.

Important Dates

  • Submission of Extended Abstract: May 21, 2021
  • Notification of Acceptance: May 28, 2021
  • Submission of Full-Length Paper: June 30, 2021

Student Scholarships and Best Student Paper Awards

The CFD Society of Canada has announced that it will award up to two scholarships of $4,000 each to graduate students pursuing CFD research at a Canadian university. Application deadline is June 1, 2021. The application information can be found at https://www.cfdcanada.ca/awards/. Scholarships will be awarded at the CFD2021 conference.

The Society honors two best student papers presented at CFD2021 with a cash prize of $500 each. Full-time students can enter the competition by indicating their interest when they submit the full paper for their presentation at the conference. The Best Student Paper Awards will be presented at the conference on July 28, 2021. The awards will be determined by a judging panel based on the quality of the paper and student’s presentation.

Supporting Journal

Authors of selected papers will be invited to submit an improved version for consideration in a special issue of Physics of Fluids on Advances in CFD Methods, Simulations and Applications.
