統合講演Plenary Lectures:

1. “New Perspectives on Bio-Fluid Dynamics 
      in Swimming, Flying, and Beyond
” 

      Prof. Hao Liu (Chiba University) 
      [劉浩 先生(千葉大学大学院工学研究科)]

Bio-fluid dynamics in swimming and flying are in general of multi-scaled, diverse and unsteady phenomena owing to the broad range of sizing or Reynolds numbers from blood cells, bacterium up to insects, birds and dolphins, as well as the interaction of flexible or compliant living interfaces and /or tissues with surrounding viscous fluid. Unveiling novel mechanisms in both microscopic and macroscopic animal locomotion usually needs to answer a central question on how biological swimmers and flyers are capable of sophisticated force production and precise, agile manoeuvring, which often encounters challenges in dealing with low Reynolds number flows interacting with oscillating flexible boundaries. In this lecture, we will give some new perspectives on bio-fluid dynamics in swimming and flying with a specific focus on biomechanics in insect-inspired flight systems in terms of flapping and flexible wing aerodynamics, flight dynamics and stability, passive and active mechanisms in stabilization and control, as well as flapping flight in unsteady environments. We will further discuss on the next tasks and challenges in bio-fluid dynamics as well as their applications in bio-robotics and bio-inspired engineering.  

2. Physics of Volvox in individual, cell, and group level"

      Prof. Yoshihiro Murayama (Tokyo University of Agriculture and Technology) 

      [村山能宏 先生(東京農工大学大学院工学研究院)]

A green alga Volvox is an interesting microorganism for not only biologist but also physicist. An individual Volvox consists of thousands of somatic cells having two flagella and can swim toward light source by coordinating flagellar beating. Volvox shows us fascinating phenomena from physical or fluid dynamical point of view. In this talk, I will show three different motions of Volvox in different time and length scales: 1) phototactic behavior in individual level, 2) flagellar beating in cell level, and 3) clustering in group level, which have been characterized from physical point of view. We hope that the characterization of these motions of Volvox gives us a hint to reveal physical meaning of multicellularity and evolution from unicellular to multicellular organism.
