  • EARLY BOOKING RECOMMENDATION OF GROUND TRANSPORTATION (Apr. 27, 2013)

    Program (overview) is now available. For more detail, please visit the page "program". According to this, you can discuss with the travel agency for your travel schedule to Hirosaki. Please remember that, around the time of conference, we do have many festival in North-east Japan so that not only the hotel but also the ground transportation should be quite tight. It would be highly possible that little seat is left fot Shinkan-sen, Flight, Bus etc: earliest booking of ground transportation is also highly recommended.

    HOTEL RESERVATION IS NOW READY (Apr. 1, 2013)

    Hotel researvation is now available. For more detail, please visit the page "venue & accommodations". Please aware that we have limited number of rooms researved for ISSM deligates: the room is assigned by "first-come-first-serve" basis. If all rooms are booked, it would be quite difficult to find the place to stay nearby the conference site. To avoid this, early action to book the room is highly recommended (note that we will hold the room until June 6th as informed).

    DEADLINE OF SUBMISSION WAS EXTENDED TILL END OF APRIL, 2013 (Jan. 7, 2013)

    ISSM-7 exective committee decided to extend the deadline of submission one month; namely, till end of April, 2013.
    Please submit your contributed paper to ISSM-7!

    FOCUS OF ISSM-7 HAS BEEN UPDATED (Sept. 30, 2012)

    ISMC (International Scale Modeling Committee) has selected the following two issues seriously-considered for the present symposium, namely, (1) scale modeling for safety management/design, and (2) scale modeling for energy-saving strategy.
    Based on this decision, exective committee decided to open the special session;

    Scale Modeling on Natural Disaster

    Facing on severe structural and environmental dameges caused by huge earthquake in 2011 (March eleventh), now is the time to reconsider the strategy to manage such natural disaster with assistance of scale modeling apporach. Any related work on this field is encouraged to join to the symposium and let us discuss together the future direction in a right way.

    ISMC DECIDED TO PUBLISH THE SECOND BOOK OF SCALE MODELING (May 12, 2013)

    ISMC (International Scale Modeling Committee) has been decided to publish the book including the selected papers accepted to present at ISSM-6 (2009) and incoming ISSM-7. This article is considered as the continuous version of "Progress in Scale Modeling (PSM)" published at 2008 from Springer (ISBN: 978-1-4020-8682-3), including the selected papers presented at the past ISSMs (first to fifth). PSM is known as unique and only research article to deal with variety of scale modeling problems in the vast subjects. Selective procedure to this book will be started after this symposium by editorial committee (Detail publication process will be announced to each potential personel). We highly encourage your contribution to this article through the submission to ISSM-7.

    It is my great pleasure to announce the 7th Symposium (ISSM-7) at Hirosaki, Japan, in August 2013, hosted by Professor Akihiko Ito of Hirosaki University. I would like to invite you to submit your accomplishments and on-going research results on scale modeling to this symposium, and looking forward to getting together and seeing you in Hirosaki, 2013.

    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 six symposia were held (ISSM-2 at Lexington, KY in 1998, ISSM-3 at Nagoya, Japan in 2000, ISSM-4 at Cleveland, OH in 2003, ISSM-5 at Choshi, Japan in 2006, and ISSM-6 at Kauai, HI in 2009). 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 (or four) 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 Scale Modeling, which was published by Springer in August 2008.

    It is pleasure to announce that we are going to have the 7th international symposium on scale modeling (ISSM-7) at the famous "Neputa" place (Japan) in August 2013. As is well-known, a concept of scale modeling is so powerful in engineering field, moreover, it is scientifically important to understand the major physics to govern the interested phenomena. Because this concept is useful to any kind of field of engineering (e.g., fluid, thermal, dynamic, statics, architecture, civil, ocean, space etc.), this symposium will provide chance to involve anybody from a variety of fields; not limited to signle research area/field as most of the other conferences. This feature makes this symposia so unique, and is the original idea from Dr. R. Emori (founder of this symposium since 1988). In fact, his soul has been successfully continued to past symposia and transferred to younger generations. This time, it is great honor to be in charge to host Seventh symposium (ISSM-7) in Hirosaki, Japan, where you can enjoy a famous of beautiful "Neputa" festival and we would like to welcome anybody who is interested in this unique yet wonderful academic yet engineering meeting.

    This symposium could provide everyone a variety chances/accesses to learn new things related on scale model. How to use the concept of scale model in your field is also one of scopes in this symposium so that you are not necessary to be a professional in scale model. We are certainly sure that all attendees can enjoy and learn a power of scale model through the symposium. I look forward to seeing you at Hirosaki, Japan, in 2013.
