The Thirteenth International Symposium on

Advanced Fluid Information

  Sendai International Center, Sendai, Japan
November 25-27, 2013
  AFI-2013 will be held with ICFD2013. Detailed information is available in website of ICFD2013. 


The term, "Advanced Fluid Information" (AFI) was created at Institute of Fluid Science (IFS), Tohoku University to signify the paradigm shift in fluid dynamics research (experimental, numerical or theoretical) and its application with the help of both distributed and powerful Information and Communication Technology. This AFI-2013 symposium is anticipated to foster productive dialogues among participants and to generate excitement and interests in the fields of AFI.
This symposium is composed of three sessions: IFS Collaborative Research Forum (short presentations and poster session), Young Researcher Overseas Visits Program Research Forum, and Fluids Science Research Award Lecture. IFS Collaborative Research Forum aims to review and encourage collaborative research projects. In Young Researcher Overseas Visits Program Research Forum, young researchers of IFS report their research results obtained through the overseas visits project. In the Fluids Science Research Award Lecture, the winners of the Fluids Science Research Award give commemorative lectures. We wish this symposium promote further collaboration in the field of fluid science.

  IFS Collaborative Research Forum (PS1 in ICFD 2013)  
  IFS promotes collaborative research between researchers of institutes in and outside the country and those of IFS on research topics related to fluid science in aerospace, energy, life science, nano-micro technology, and other fundamental fields. IFS holds this forum in order to present the results of collaborative research and exchange between researchers.
