Wednesday 19 August
16:10 - 18:10
The demonstrations room has acoustofluidic systems under development. You will see how well these systems perform in the real world. The Acoustofluidic Olympics will take place during the demonstration session where all systems will be open to your full scrutiny. There will be categories such as speed of particle and liquid movement, heaviest particle, cornering speed and smallest electronic circuit.

This year the conference is inviting all delegates to bring a tabletop acoustofluidic system to demonstrate.
Deadline to book a table Monday, 15 August 2022.
Demonstrations will be set up and delivered like the posters, in a flea market style. You will also get the opportunity to win a medal in the Acoustofluidic Olympic Games. In the Olympics, we expect to measure and record acoustofluidic feats such as: Fastest moving and highest jumping particle or droplet or lifting the heaviest particle or droplet, the tightest grip, greatest precision placement, highest flow rate etc. You can create a category appropriate for your system. There will also be a prize for the best demonstration, as voted by attendees.
You could bring:
- The system you are currently working on.
- A system which could make a good teaching aid.
- A peculiar acoustic phenomenon.
- An overlooked acoustofluidic phenomena seen in everyday life e.g. vortex rings, Chladni figures, the sound of cavitation from splashing water, standing waves formed when you hold your finger under a slow running tap etc.
If you are able to bring a demonstration please complete the table reservation form (pdf)
The reservation form should be sent to email@example.com
with a Deadline Monday, 15 August 2022.
Please feel free to send any questions regarding the event to Jeremy Hawkes JeremyJhawkes@gmail.com
or Julien ReboudJulien.Reboud@glasgow.ac.uk
- You will need to complete a risk assessment and your equipment will be PAT tested on arrival (if not already valid).
- Commercial systems are welcome in paid for booth spaces, this is available separately (please contact firstname.lastname@example.org). However companies are welcome to give demonstrations and enter the Olympics. We encourage companies to demonstrate curious novelties rather than their core product during this event.
- We will provide a power socket and access to water.
- It is free to enter a demo (and there is potential to book local student demonstrators for help if required).
