The 64th Annual Meeting of the American Physical Society's Division of Fluid Dynamics (DFD) was held in Baltimore, Maryland from November 20th to 22nd, 2011.

The meeting was hosted by the Johns Hopkins University, the University of Maryland, the University of Delaware and The George Washington University.

Howard University and the US Naval Academy are also participated in the organization of the meeting. 

The first annual meeting of the DFD was hosted by the Naval Ordnance Laboratory in White Oak, MD in 1948. Since then, the DFD annual meeting has grown into one of the largest conferences in fluid dynamics, with over 2400 participants from all over the world attending this year in Baltimore. The objective was to promote the advancement and dissemination of knowledge in all areas of fluid dynamics. Graduate students, postdoctoral researchers, university faculty, and researchers across government and industry shared the latest developments in the field. The technical program featured oral presentations, posters and videos of fluid flow, and mini-symposia on key topics. Other special events included vendor exhibits, student luncheons with senior members and the awarding of the Fluid Dynamics prize and Stanley Corrsin prize.

The APS DFD provides travel subsidy and child care grants to qualifying participants.
