After enthusiastic responses to the past six ICJWSFs held in Mie, Japan (2005), Berlin, Germany (2008), Cincinnati, USA (2010), Nagoya, Japan (2013), Stockholm, Sweden (2015), and Cincinnati, USA (2017), the 7th International Conference on Jets, Wakes and Separated Flows (ICJWSF) will be held in Hong Kong from December 1 to 5, 2019. The focus of this conference will be on the latest progress in the development of fluid dynamics, flow control and measurement techniques for complex flows and exchanging new information among scientists and engineers working in universities, industries and other fields. This conference aims to provide an international forum for presentation, exchange of ideas and creation of knowledge in recent advances on various aspects of theories, analyses, and applications of flow control techniques in complex fluid flow systems. It will bring together researchers and practitioners from academia, research institutions and industry to exchange experiences, disseminate up-to-date information, and explore new opportunities in the field; in particular, it will expose young or new researchers to the state of the art in the field by means of the conference. It is anticipated that the 7th International Conference on Jets, Wakes and Separated Flows-2019 (ICJWSF 2019) will provide an opportunity for stimulation of the researchers as well as for furthering cooperation among the investigators in the field of advanced flow control and complex flow measurement techniques.
