This symposium will provide multidisciplinary discussions for diverse oxide materials of bulk, thin films, heterostructures, nano-structures, -particles, and -composites with a wide range of topics: materials design & fabrication, characterization, processing and application. Topics of the recent progress in spin electronics, transparent oxide semiconductors, transparent conductive oxides as well as resistive switching are also included. Not only experimental approaches but also theoretical approaches including calculations are welcome to this symposium. A variety of materials properties will be discussed such as superconducting, electrical, semiconducting, insulating, ferroelectric, ferromagnetic, multiferroic, magnetoelectric and optical phenomena. The broad and deep discussion will definitely give a harmonized novel idea to participants. We encourage a variety of scientists to submit papers for a wide range of topics to this symposium of “Functional Oxide Materials”.


1. Oxide materials of bulks, thin films, heterostructures, and nanostructures
2. Insulators, superconductors, electric & ferroelectrics, ferromagnetics, multiferroics, magnetoelectrics, optics, transparent conductive related oxides.
