The 19th International Symposium on Flow Visualization (ISFV-19), hosted by the School of Mechanical Engineering of Shanghai Jiao Tong University, was held online from September 14th to 16th. More than 200 scholars from universities, research institutes and famous enterprises discussed new ideas, methods, and technologies in the field of fluid dynamics. The conference received more than 100 papers contributed from more than 20 countries and regions, with 15 sessions focusing on turbulence, hypersonic flow, optical measurement technology and other key development directions of fluid mechanics, covering current hot issues such as pattern recognition, artificial intelligence (AI) and bionic fluid mechanics. The symposium adopts a new virtual conference system, which provides a unique immersive experience for scholars from all over the world to attend the conference.

Prof. Yingzheng Liu, chairman of the conference, delivered a welcome speech. Six invited lectures were presented by six famous scholars - Prof. Andreas Schröder, chief scientist of the German Aerospace Center (DLR), Prof. Shinichiro Ito, president of the Visualization Society of Japan and Kogakuin University, Prof. Fulvio Scarano, Deputy Dean of the faculty of Aerospace Engineering of the Delft University of Technology (Netherlands), Prof. Kyung Chun Kim, Editor in Chief of Journal of Visualization and professor of Pusan National University (PNU), Prof. Hui Hu, Associate Editor of Experimental Thermal and Fluid Science and professor of Iowa State University (USA), and Prof. Yue Yang, National Distinguished Young Researcher and professor of Peking University (China). Sixteen distinguished scholars from universities and research institutions such as University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, University of Lyon, and Waseda University were invited to give keynote speeches in the sessions.

The conference set up multiple online seminars, and the attendees engaged in lively discussions around each academic poster. Delft University of Technology (Netherlands) was granted to host the next 20th International Symposium on Flow Visualization (ISFV 20). 

International Symposium on Flow Visualization is an important international academic conference in the field of experimental fluid dynamics, which has a history of more than 40 years and has been held successively by universities and research institutions such as the University of Tokyo in Japan, the University of Notre Dame in the United States, CNRS in France, DLR in Germany, and ETH Zurich in Switzerland. The conference was hosted in China mainland for the first time and was held with the support of Shanghai Jiao Tong University. It was also funded by the National Natural Science Foundation of China (NSFC) for scientific and technological activities, as well as TSI (USA), Lavision (Germany), and other international enterprises in fluid experimental equipment. The conference has strongly promoted academic exchanges and cooperation among domestic and foreign scholars, and enhanced the international influence of China in the field of experimental fluid mechanics.
