The Burgers Symposium is the annual two-days meeting platform for all (junior and senior) scientific staff, and outside guests, of the J.M. Burgerscentrum.

The Burgers Symposium 2023 will take place on 31 May & 1 June, in-person at the conference centre ‘De Werelt’ in Lunteren.  This is a yearly event of the JM Burgers Centre (JMBC), which serves as the annual meeting platform for all junior and senior scientists of the JMBC. Guests from outside the Burgerscentrum are also welcome.

The full programme can be found here: JMBC Programme

The programme includes:

  • The Burgers Lecture by Prof. Peko Hosoi (MIT, USA, entitled. “Filtration and fundamental fluid mechanics inspired by the manta ray”.
  • A total of 46 slots for 12 min. talks by PhD students and postdocs, with award for the two best presentations.
  • A session where a selection of New Scientific Staff in the Burgerscentrum will give a presentation.
  • The Symposium Dinner followed by an Invited Lecture by prof. Erik van Sebille (University of Utrecht), entitled: “Tackling the plastic soup: How physicists, mathematicians and computer scientists can support a clean and sustainable ocean.”
  • The Burgers Gallery, which consists of posters and movies. Each contributor is requested to give a 1 minute pitch about their work. Those giving a pitch will automatically compete for the Burgers Gallery Award for Best Poster or for Best Movie, which will be announced by the end of the symposium.
  • A session on Fluid Flow in the Industry.
  • 2022 KIVI Hoogendoorn Fluid Mechanics Award to Dr. ir. Willian Hogendoorn.

In between the sessions, there will be ample possibilities to meet colleagues and friends, to exchange ideas, to talk about collaborations, to enjoy the nice surroundings of the conference centre: coffee/tea breaks, lunches, Symposium Dinner, and networking drinks.

We invite all JMBC members (and interested guests from outside the JMBC) to join in this annual event. Like in the past years, we really hope to welcome many of the JMBC scientific staff, PhD students, and postdocs.

One can register (free of charge, though with obligation to show up at the symposium) before 10th May 2023 (provided seats are still available):
