In June 2006 several researchers from universities, industry, and national labs met at the National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL), to discuss outstanding research problems in multiphase flow with particular relevance to energy technologies and to chart out a roadmap for solving such problems. The vision of the workshop was to ?ensure that by 2015 multiphase science-based computer simulations play a significant role in the design, operation, and troubleshooting of multiphase flow devices in fossil fuel processing plants.? The results of that workshop, including a technology roadmap, were summarized in a workshop report (http://tinyurl.com/c9r7ux). At a follow on workshop held in April 2009 the progress made on the various topics of the roadmap was reviewed, and the process of updating and revising the roadmap was started. The objective of this presentation is to review the roadmap and the progress on various topics relevant to fluid-particle systems, and to involve a wider audience in revising the roadmap and in working on various roadmap topics.
