The 96th JSME Fluids Engineering Conference was held from 29 to 30, Nov., 2018 at Houraiden of Muroran City, Hokkaido. The conference has keynote lecture from Dr. Bando (Asahiyama Zoo), special lecture from Mr. Inagawa (Interstellar Technologies Inc.), and 15 organized sessions and general sessions. As a new attempt, all lectures became poster presentation format. At the first day of the conference, the 16th dream of flow contest was held, and 10 imaginative works were successfully presented and exhibited under the theme of “Active Flow Control”.

This issue of the newsletter is “JSME Fluids Engineering Conference”. Attractive articles were provided from a speaker of the special lecture and recipients of the JSME young researcher fellow and the best presentation award of the fluid engineering conference. Furthermore, the concept and approach for the dream of flow contest were reported from the teams of first prize and ICHIKI award. It is expected that articles are informative for engineers and researchers, and help to share the activities of the fluids engineering division in the future.

Finally, we would like to express appreciation to all the authors for their contributions.

Tokitada Hashimoto, Shoichi Matsuda, H.J. Park
