The 14th International Conference on
Discrete Simulation of Fluid Dynamics
in Complex Systems
Kyoto University, Kyoto, Japan, August 22 - 26, 2005
The 14th International Conference on Discrete Simulation of Fluid Dynamics in Complex Systems (DSFD 2005) will
be held in Kyoto University, Kyoto, Japan, from August 22 to August 26, 2005. The aim of the Conference is to provide the opportunity to present recent
progress and to obtain information about new direction for leading researchers
working on discrete simulations of fluid dynamics in a broad sense. The
following subjects will be included in the scope of the conference:
There will be sessions on
- lattice gas automata
- the lattice Boltzmann equation
- dissipative particle dynamics
- smoothed-particle hydrodynamics
- direct simulation Monte Carlo
- stochastic rotation dynamics
- molecular dynamics
The conference will take place in the Clock Tower Centennial Hall
in Yoshida Campus of Kyoto University. The campus is located in the north-east part of Kyoto City and is close
to Higashiyama and Kitashirakawa zones that contain many historically and
touristically important temples and gardens.
- advances in both theory and computation
- engineering applications of discrete fluid algorithms
- fundamental issues in statistical mechanics, kinetic theory, and hydrodynamics

The registration fee is 25,000 JPY (Japanese Yen) for a regular participant,
15,000 JPY for a student, and 10,000 JPY for an accompanying person.
The registration desk on Sunday will be open only in the Royal Hotel
(The way from COOP INN Kyoto to Royal Hotel is shown here. It is a 10-minute walk).
The registration desk at the conference site will be open on Monday through
on Friday. The registration fee can be accepted only by cash.
All the speakers are asked to send a one-page abstract by e-mail to
before May 1, 2005.
A tentative program is shown here. Keynote talks are limited to 45 min. for presentation and 5 min. for
discussion. Other regular talks are limited to 20 min. for presentation
and 5 min. for discussion.
Full-length refereed papers based on presentations at DSFD2005 will be
published as regular articles in a special issue of the journal of "Applied
Numerical Mathematics" or "Mathematics and Computers in Simulation"
(both are published by Elsevier) as the proceedings of DSFD2005. Please
send your manuscript according to the following instructions.
- The deadline of paper submission is October 31, 2005.
- Electronic submission is encouraged. Please submit a pdf file with a source file (Elsevier latex style file) to the following address:
- Each manuscript should be limited within 6 pages.
The registered participants are invited to attend a banquet and an excursion
held during the conference.
A number of rooms are reserved in Kyoto Royal Hotel,
which is a high-standard hotel located in the central and shopping district of the city,
and COOP INN Kyoto, which is an economical hotel also located in the center. There is a frequent service of the city bus between the center and the campus: a 15-minute ride from Kyoto Royal Hotel and a 20-minute ride (plus 10-minute walk) from COOP INN Kyoto. For information and reservation, please click here. The reservations should be made no later than July 30, 2005 because hotels are crowded in Kyoto.
The nearest international airport to Kyoto is Kansai(Osaka) International Airport. From the airport to Kyoto, we recommend the following two ways:
The way #1 is faster (73min.). It arrives at Kyoto Station, so you have to take a taxi or bus to the hotel. The way #2 takes more (2hours), but it directly reaches
- Railway: JR West (Kansai Airport Line), Limited Express "Haruka"
- Shuttle Bus: MK Taxi, "Skygateshuttle" (reservation required -- follow the link)
