Join Us in Kobe for 2024

The next ICCFD conference will be held in the exotic and beautiful port city of Kobe, and will include a combination of inspiring plenary talks, keynotes and technical sessions of the latest fundamental and applied CFD research. In addition, there will be a chance to meet new and old colleagues at a number of social events.


ICCFD is a leading international conference devoted to all innovative aspects of CFD, fundamental and applied. This biennial event began in the year 2000 with the merger of two important CFD conferences: the International Conference on Numerical Methods in Fluid Dynamics (ICNMFD), and the International Symposium on Computational Fluid Dynamics (ISCFD).


ICCFD12 is devoted to all innovative aspects of CFD, basic and applied. Subjects of interest include but are not limited to:

  • Innovative algorithm development and data science technologies for flow simulations: higher-order methods, iterative methods, parallel algorithms, high-performance computing, mesh adaption, grid generation, meshless methods, immersed boundary methods, level-set methods, artificial intelligence (AI), and optimization algorithms
  • Advances in modeling of flow physics in the areas of: steady and unsteady flows, compressible and incompressible flows, flows in porous media, hypersonic and reacting flows, turbulence (transition, DNS/LES, etc.), multi-phase flows, boundary layer stability, and vortex dynamics
  • Advanced multidisciplinary applications using the above mentioned technologies: aeroacoustics, flow control, biomedical fluid mechanics, large scale applications, verification and validation methods, and turbomachinery
We invite you to submit an abstract for a paper and a talk.

The abstract submission was closed on January 29th. Thank you for submitting your abstract!

The Confit online submission system can be found here.

Abstracts should be 1-2 pages in length. Please use one of the following templates:

ICCFD expects active research exchange at the conference, and welcomes participation from many research teams. Thus, three or more submissions from the same research group may affect its acceptance.

Submission of the final paper is mandatory, while its format is flexible, including extended abstract or presentation slides. Those submitted in full-paper format will be reviewed and possibly selected as articles in the special issue of Computers and Fluids.

Young researchers are encouraged to apply for the Young CFD Investigator Award.

About Kobe City

Kobe is the capital of Hyogo Prefecture with its population of about 1.53 million, designated by government as one of twenty major cities in Japan. Located between the sea and the Rokko mountain range, Kobe is also considered one of Japan's most attractive cities for both domestic and international tourists. Kobe has also been an important port city for many centuries, and was among the first to be opened to foreign trade in the 19th century. In 1995, Kobe was hit by the Great Hanshin-Awaji Earthquake. Today the city has recovered completely from the disaster, and few signs of the terrible event remain. Kobe is home to many attractions: Arima Onsen, one of the oldest Hot Springs in Japan; The "ten-million-dollar night view" from the top of Mt. Rokko; Akashi Kaikyo Bridge, the longest suspension bridge in the world; Kobe beef, the world-famous melt-in- your-mouth beef; Sake breweries, where you can see how sake is produced. Kobe is close to three airports in the Kansai area (Kansai International Airport, Osaka International Airport, and Kobe Airport) and has a Shinkansen station (Shin-Kobe), offering excellent access, from both international and domestic locations.

Kobe International Conference Center

  • It is located at the center of Port Island, an artificial island, 10 minutes from the center of Kobe (Sannomiya).
  • This center has the Main Hall, with a capacity of 692 people, and the prestigious International Conference Room, with a capacity of 360 (in a theater-style layout) where UN and inter-governmental conferences have been held.
  • Its Reception Hall has removable partitions to broaden the usage of the adjacent International Conference Room. There is a total of 21 medium to small meeting rooms, including one with a maximum capacity of 200 people. Each floor has a spacious lounge and lobby and can be reserved for exclusive use in exhibitions, poster sessions, etc.

Young CFD Investigator Award

The award is the contribution from the committee members under the agreement of committee members of "International Nobeyama Workshop in honor of Prof. Kunio Kuwahara" that was held several years ago for his remarkable contribution to CFD and international collaborations.

Professor Kunio Kuwahara undertook pioneering numerical studies on the vortex method in the 1970s. From then to the early nineties, he developed numerical analyses on a variety of three-dimensional unsteady phenomena of incompressible and compressible fluid flows and/or complex fluid flows using his own supercomputers with academic and industrial co-workers and members of his private research institute, ICFD in Tokyo. For his contributions to CFD, Professor Kuwahara received Awards from the Japan Society of Automobile Engineers and the Japan Society of Mechanical Engineers in 1992, the Computational Mechanics Achievement Award from the Japan Society of Mechanical Engineers in 1993, and the Max Planck Research Award in 1993. He received the Computational Mechanics Award from the Japan Society of Mechanical Engineers again in 2008. Professor Kuwahara also supported the development of the Japan Society of Fluid Mechanics, whose office is located in the same building as ICFD. Professor Kunio Kuwahara passed away on 15 September 2008, at the age of 66.
