A unifying theme in all biological fluid dynamics is the interaction of moving, elastic boundaries with surrounding fluid. This workshop will bring together biologists, zoologists, mathematicians and numerical analysts to focus on modeling and simulations of these complex systems. Topics covered include motility of microorganisms, mucociliary interaction, pulmonary airway reopening, red blood cell motion and leech swimming. Numerical methods well-suited to these systems, such as immersed boundary methods, boundary element methods and impulse methods will be explored.
