Knots and Links in Fluid Flows is a conference on topological fluid dynamics that took place at the Independent University of Moscow, from April 27th to April 30th 2015.

The aim of the conference was to promote interdisciplinary interactions between mathematicians and physicists in order to encourage communication and collaboration between these scientific communities.

The conference program was based on a series of 40 min review talks and a selection of 20 min oral contributions on new results.
