―  Theme : "The Conference of Fluid Engineering Division"  ―

98th JSME Fluids Engineering Conference was scheduled to be held from 11 to 13, Nov., 2020 at Osaka City University, but was modified to online because of concern about infection situation of COVID-19. The conference had one keynote, two special lectures and 14 organized sessions in the on-line oral presentation instead of poster presentations. By the effort of the member of the executive committee, active discussion was carried out in spite of the special situation.

On 12th Nov. the 18th dream of flow contest was held online as well as the conference, and 6 ingenious works were successfully presented and exhibited under the theme of “Let's play with the flow”.

This issue of the newsletter is “The Conference of Fluid Engineering Division”. The speakers of the keynote lecture, special lecture, JSME young researcher best presentation fellow award and fluid engineering conference best presentation award, furthermore, the teams of first place and first runner-up of the dream of flow contest provided articles. Thanks to the cooperation of many authors, we will publish it dividedly in the first half and the second half.

We are impressed that many researchers keep working hard in a difficult situation where human exchanges are extremely restricted due to the epidemic of COVID-19.We hope that the articles are informative for engineers and researchers in our field and help to share the activities of the fluids engineering division in the future.

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