Abstract : This review provides an illustrated introduction laying the knowledge base for vortical flows about three-dimensional configurations that are of typical interest to aerodynamicists and researchers in fluid mechanics. The paper then compiles a list of ten issues, again in illustrative format, that the authors deem important to the understanding of complex vortical flows. These issues and our responses to them provide, it is hoped, a skeletal framework on which to hang the ensuing conference proceedings. (Author)
