WELCOME TO ISSW32
ISSW IS IN SOUTHEAST ASIA FOR THE FIRST TIME
It is our greatest pleasure to welcome you to the 32nd International Symposium on Shock Waves (ISSW32), which will be held in Singapore on 14 – 19 July 2019.
ISSW32 is a continuation in the series of biannual international symposia that have been held throughout the world since 1957 on shock wave phenomena and applications. This will be the first time the symposium is held in Southeast Asia. All scientific programs will be conducted on the National University Singapore (NUS) Campus.
Similar to previous symposia, ISSW32 will cover analytical, experimental and numerical studies, both basic and applied, of shock wave and blast wave related phenomena. Shock waves are fascinating phenomena which may be generated in various media, such as gases, liquids, and solids, and are often accompanied by interesting yet complicated interactions.
In addition to scientific lectures and sessions, ISSW32 will feature cultural activities and an Asian-style banquet dinner to foster and strengthen the close friendship amongst members of the international shock wave community.
We look forward to welcoming you at the symposium.
