Scope

“The International Symposium on Material Science" was held on Nov.17 (Tue.) and 18 (Wed.), 2015, at Sigma Hall on the Toyonaka campus of Osaka University, Japan, under the auspice of Research Center for Science Systems (RCSS), Japan Society for Promotion of Science (JSPS). The symposium covers material sciences in general, with some emphasis on condensed-matter physics but also including chemistry, engineering and earth science. The goal of the symposium is to give a general overview of the recent research status of “material sciences” from a wider perspective, and eventually to give a prospect for future development in a broad context. During the two days of the symposium, we wish to consider with the audience the present and future of material sciences.

This symposium is the third round of the JSPS symposium of the similar style, but on a bit different topic. In 2013, we held "The International Symposium on Research Frontiers on Physics, Earth and Space Science" at Osaka, and in 2014 "The International Symposium on Multidisciplinary Sciences on the Earth" in Tokyo. For your reference, homepages of the past these two symposia are available at
"International Symposium on Research Frontiers on Physics, Earth and Space Science"
"International Symposium on Multidisciplinary Sciences on the Earth".

Oral talks consist of about 10 invited talks, each of 50 min., selected from various areas of material sciences including condensed-matter physics, chemistry, engineering and earth science. The talks are of general interest, not intended for experts of a special field. The expected audience is researchers and graduate students primarily from physics, chemistry, engineering and geophysics, but participants from other fields are also highly welcome. The poster session from general participants is also planned on the second day of the symposium. Participants are encouraged to submit posters. Posters can be of a specific subject, but need to be presented in the way that non-experts can grasp its meaning making communication between participants of different areas possible.
