    The 10th Asian Microgravity SymposiumAMS-2014

    Successfully Held in Korea

    The 10th Asian Microgravity Symposium was held successfully in Seoul, Korea on Oct. 28-31 2014. This symposium was organized by Korean Microgravity Society (KMS), National Society of Microgravity Science and Application (NSMSA), Institute of Mechanics, CAS. Technology and Engineering Center for Space Utilization, CAS and Japan Society of Microgravity Application (JASMA). Prof. Qiu Sheng LIU, Prof. Jing Chang XIE, Prof. Jian Fu ZHAO, Prof. Shuang Feng WANG, Prof. Rong LIU and other four students from the Institute of Mechanics, CAS were invited to attend this symposium.

    Professor Inho CHOI of Yonsei University, Korea was the chair of this symposium. Professor Qiu Sheng LIU, the director of the National Society of Microgravity Science and Application (NSMSA), the researcher of the Institute of Mechanics, CAS and Professor Masamichi ISHIKAWA, the director of Japan Society of Microgravity Application (JASMA) were the co-chairs of the symposium.

    This symposium has the largest number of participants than the previous ones. More than 156 scientists participated in this symposium, among which 51 participants are from China and the other 105 participants are from other countries, including Pakistan, Malaysia, India, Japan, Korea, America, German, France and the scientists from ESA. The National Institute for Biotechnology and Genetic Engineering (NIBGE), Pakistan, the National Microgravity Program, India, the National Space Agency (ANGKASA), Malaysia, the National Science and Technology Development Agency (NSTDA), Thailand and other Scientific research institutes of space in Asia were the first time to participate in.

    All participants presented 14 plenary lectures, 21 keynote presentations, 50 oral presentations and 59 poster presentations in 4 plenary meetings and 10 session meetings covered many microgravity science and related scientific fields including convection, Two-phase flow and heat transfer, combustion, complex fluid and fundamental physics, crystal growth, Material solidifies, Thermophysical, Space life science, Biotechnology, Space Station application planning and technology, Microgravity experimental technology and others. Scientists from different countries made discuss and exchange their new experimental achievements trough the meeting.

    Prof. Q.S. LIU, the researcher of the Institute of Mechanics, CAS, Prof. J. LUO of the Huazhong University of Science and Technology and Prof. P. SHANG of the Northwestern Polytechnical University were invited to give the plenary lectures on the introduction about their research progress and the latest research findings the scientific fields of space physics, microgravity fluid and space life science and biotechnology in the plenary meetings. Prof. M. GAO of Technology and Engineering Center for Space Utilization, CAS, Prof. Gi-hyuk Choi from KARI, Dr. Oliver Minster, ESA Head quarters, Physical Sciences Unit Head and Prof. Makoto ASASHIMA, they were invited to give the introduction about their research progress and the space experiment planning on the scientific fields in different countries.

    Dr. Xue CHEN, Dr. Qiang WANG and Dr. Xu Wen WANG, the PH.D. Students of the Institute of Mechanics (CAS), got the “Grand Student Awards” and “Best Student Awards” of the Symposium.

    Joint Work Meeting of Microgravity Societies in Asian country was held during this time, many participants attended the meeting who were from China, Japan, Korea, Pakistan, Malaysia and India. They reached a consensus on strengthen exchanges between the scientists in Asian countries, and determined the next symposium will be held in Hokkaido University in Sapporo, Japan on Oct. 26-29, 2016.

    This symposium gives a communication platform for all the participants not just the Asia countries but also the Europe and America international microgravity research institutions. Trough this symposium, participants got the latest research results on Space and Ground-based simulation of microgravity science and other related fields. The possible joint experiment proposals were also discussed during the meeting. The symposium was a great success.
