Welcome to TFI-2006!
Following successful symposia in Sendai (2004) and Miyazaki (2005), the Third International Symposium on Transdisplinary Fluid Integration, TFI-2006, will be held in Matsushima, one of the Three Major Scenic Spots in Japan, in June 2006.
The sponsor of the symposium is Institute of Fluid Science, Tohoku University, which founded the Transdisciplinary Fluid Integration (TFI) Research Center in 2003. The main purpose of the center is to address transdisciplinary fluid problems arising in various research fields such as environmental science, life science, information technology, and nanotechnology. To tackle these problems, we have been attempting to integrate experimental and computational methods to establish the novel TFI approaches.
The symposium this year further explores the potentials of the TFI technologies especially from the aspect of gShape Modeling and Analysis in Fluid Scienceh. Visual computing is indispensable for significant improvements in both efficiency and accuracy of TFI solutions to a number of fluid problems in various application areas.
Two distinguished researchers: Prof. Jarke van Wijk, Technische Universiteit Eindhoven, The Netherlands, and Prof. Kwan-Liu Ma, University of California, Davis, USA, are going to deliver invited lectures on the opening day of the Symposium. Also four leading researchers in Japan are going to introduce their state-of-the-art methods in a special session on the second day of the symposium.
For participantsf convenience, TFI-2006 is co-located with two closely-related international meetings: IEEE Shape Modeling and Applications 2006 and AIM@SHAPE First International Workshop on Shapes and Semantics.
