EXTENSION OF DEADLINE OF SUBMISSION (~ JUNE 30)
ICSM (international committee of scale modeling) decided to extend deadline
of submission from May 31st to June 30th. Please take into account to perticipate
ISSM6 in this summer. We all invite you to come to Hawaii and have fruitful
discussion on scalem modeling issues.
SWINE FLU EFFECT ON ISSM6
ICSM (international committee of scalem modeling) and ISSM6 chairs have been discussed
seriously about the effect and treatment on Swine Flu.
At this moment, we decide to hold ISSM6 as planned.
However, we may make final decision according to the on-time situation.
Our decision will be posted on the website (top page, in this section) in a timely manner.
We would like to ask all possible attendees to ISSM6 to check the status through
the website. Thank you for your kind understandings.
If you have further question and special request on this matter, please do not
hesitate to ask symposium office.
We also would like to all attendees to ISSM6 to prepare well for Swine Flu;
preventing spreading is each personnel's responsivility (e.g., prevent cough,
wash your hands frequently etc.), just as normal flu treatment.
MESSAGE FROM CHAIR ON ISMC
(INTERNATIONAL SCALE MODELING COMMITTEE)
Kozo SAITO, Ph.D.
Director, Institute of Research for Technology Development (IR4TD) &
Tennessee Valley Authority Professor in Mechanical Engineering
University of Kentucky
Lexington, KY 40508-0503 USA
Scale modeling covers almost all fields of engineering and is often
applied to medicine, meteorology, biology etc.
Because of its interdisciplinary nature, Professor Emori
(the founder of scale modeling theory)
knew there was a need for international communication among a wide range
of scale modeling researchers. He initiated the first international
symposium on scale modeling in 1988 in Tokyo under the sponsorship
of the Japan Society of Mechanical Engineers.
Following this first successful ISSM, so far five symposia were held
(ISSM-2 at Lexington, KY in 1998, ISSM-3 at Nagoya, Japan in 2000,
ISSM-4 at Cleveland, OH in 2003, and ISSM-5 at Choshi, Japan in 2005).
In 2000, the International Scale Modeling Committee consisted of
professionals on scale modeling from a variety of fields,
and they decided ISSM should be held every three years.
After ISSM-5, a special workshop was proposed to select papers from
the past ISSM and collect them in a special ISSM volume: Progress in
, which was published by Springer in August 2008.
Now it is time to have 6th Symposium (ISSM-6) at Hawaii, Kauai, on September 2009.
At this time, Professor Yuji Nakamura from Hokkaido University
will be a host to organize the symposium.
Any person who is interested in the scale modeling community is welcomed to attend.
We are looking forward to getting together and seeing you in Hawaii, 2009.
MESSAGE FROM CHAIR OF ISSM-6
It is pleasure to have the 6th international symposium on scale modeling
(ISSM-6) on the beautiful island of Kauai, Hawaii in September 2009.
Through the past symposia, the importance of the engineering concept of
scale modeling has been addressed and confirmed in various fields and
the scale modeling community has spread over the world.
Keeping this legacy, in ISSM-6, we welcome any person who is interested to
discuss scale modeling issues. Beyond the conventional purpose,
such as deeper understanding of fluid dynamics, thermal processes,
fire modeling, etc., we would like to have a variety of discussions on
the application process as well in this symposium.
We are sure this symposium brings a lot of merits and impacts all disciplines.
Everyone has chance to learn new things through not only the technical
sessions but also face-to-face communications/discussions during the
"rich" break time, since providing such an atmosphere is one of the
important features of this symposium.
Please join us and enjoy scale modeling and the wonderful atmosphere that
this symposium creates. I look forward to seeing you at Kauai, Hawaii, in 2009.
