The immersed boundary method (IBM) is a methodology for handling the fluid-structure interaction, especially for physical problems involving complex geometries, large displacements and deformations. Recently, increasing attention has been attracted for the development of novel IBM and its applications to challenging problems. The aim of this mini-symposium is to highlight the latest progresses in IBM. We encourage submissions on the strategies to address the challenges in IBM such as high Reynolds number turbulent flows, fluid-structure-acoustics interaction and fluid-structure interaction in multi-phase flows and compressible flows. The applications of IBM in fundamentals and engineering sciences are also welcome.
