ICSW 2021

The Local Organising Committee for the 33rd International Symposium on Shock Waves is pleased to present the International Colloquium on Shock Waves (ICSW) in the first week of December 2021.

Whilst this year’s symposium, ISSW33, had to be cancelled due to travel restrictions associated with COVID-19, the Local Organising Committee will instead coordinate six seminars from eminent researchers on topics related to shock waves, including hypersonic boundary layer transition measurements, numerical simulation of reactive flows, electric supersonic and hypersonic propulsion, rotating detonation engine flight testing, manipulating hydrodynamic instabilities, and ignition of aluminium particles in a shock tube.

The ICSW consists of three separate plenary events between 6 and 10 December 2021. These events have been scheduled at different times of the day such that at least two sessions should occur at convenient times for participants in all parts of the world.

Each session is three hours in duration and includes two plenary presentations from research leaders in the shock waves community. Session 2 will include a virtual facility tour of the hypersonic wind tunnel facilities at The University of Queensland, and Session 3 will include an awards ceremony from the International Shock Wave Institute (ISWI).

All ICSW sessions will occur on Zoom and are free of charge. Prior registration on Zoom is recommended to receive updates and to avoid missing out if sessions reach capacity.

Further details and registration information can be found on the ICSW website which can be accessed from either or

Thank you,

The ICSW Local Organising Committee
