The Twelfth International Symposium on

Advanced Fluid Information
Transdisciplinary Fluid Integration

  Hotel Metropolitan Sendai, Japan
September 19-21, 2012
  AFI/TFI-2012 will be held with ICFD2012. Detailed information is available in website of ICFD2012. 


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. Transdisciplinary Fluid Integration (TFI) Research Center was established at IFS in 2003 to address transdisciplinary fluid research arising in various fields such as space, energy, life science and micro and nano-technology. This AFI/TFI-2012 symposium is anticipated to foster productive dialogues among participants and to generate excitement and interests in the fields of AFI and TFI.
This symposium is composed of two sessions: TFI (presentations from laboratories of TFI Research Center) and IFS Collaborative Research Forum (short presentations and poster session). TFI session is organized to summarize the ten-year research results at TFI Research Center. IFS Collaborative Research Forum aims to review and encourage collaborative research projects. We wish this symposium promote further collaboration in the field of fluid science.

  IFS Collaborative Research Forum (PS1 in ICFD 2012)  
  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.
