The European Drag Reduction and Flow Control Meetings have proven to be a very attractive series of workshops on drag reduction and flow control. They are organized by the ERCOFTAC Special Interest Group SIG20 - Drag Reduction and Flow Control. Within this SIG, a coordination of experimental, numerical and analytical research into drag reduction and flow control using passive and active techniques is carried out.
