ISUD 2023

Welcome to ISUD 2023

Thank You for Attending ISUD 2023

The 14th International Symposium on Ultrasonic Doppler Methods for Fluid Mechanics and Fluid Engineering (ISUD 2023) was successfully held at Kobe University, Kobe, Japan from October 28-30, 2023. The symposium was organized by the Visualization Society of Japan.
In ISUD 2023, we had 2 keynote lectures, 1 special lecture, and 27 technical presentations. In total, 42 persons attended the technical session, and 8 persons were accompanying. All the presentations were beneficial, important, and interesting research. This conference has traditionally been held in a single session. Therefore, all participants could listen to all the presentations, making it an excellent opportunity to exchange information on recent topics regarding fluid measurement using ultrasound techniques. At this meeting, we valued sharing a family-like atmosphere. I hope that in the future while maintaining our past traditions, we will develop into new research fields and increase our colleagues. This conference was supported by Met-Flow, UBERTONE, KBK, FlowBiz, Japan Probe, and NIIGATA. I appreciate all the sponsors. I believe all of you could enjoy this conference and could exchange good information with the participants. On behalf of the organizing committee, I would like to express my gratitude to everyone who was involved in this conference.
The next ISUD 2025 will be held in Grenoble, France in 2025. See you at the next meeting!

Chair of ISUD 2023, Hideki Murakawa
