Strongly correlated functional materials are expected to be utilized in advanced devices for such as magnetic sensors and recording media because of their quantum magnetic and electronic features beyond the independent electron approximation. Currently, many studies are focused on correlated d electrons solid-state materials and their magnetic and electronic behaviors such as metal-insulator transition, high-Tc superconductivity, quantum magnetism, and topological features, in order to deepen understanding of the fundamental properties and to further develop the materials toward possible use in future applications. In this symposium, we bring together leading scientists who are actively investigating correlated materials and overlook progress of our studies. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:


1. New materials in 3d, 4d, 5d system
2. Superconductors and their properties and applications
3. Multiferroic materials
4. Crystal growth, structure analysis, and coordination chemistry of correlated materials
5. Transition-metal mixed-anion compounds and their properties
6. Structural transition and properties change under high-pressure
7. Characterization of correlated materials under extreme conditions
