Materials Science and Engineering (MS & E) has been Japan’s conventional speciality originally.
However, many countries have caught up with us recently and fears about the decrease of academic papers in the filed may have taken place. The number of papers should be not only the academic interest and issues, but also the indicator for GDP and the innovation power of each nation.
Therefore, we are afraid that this negative academic phenomenon might lead to the decrease of GDP in the future and it might also lead to the lack of positive activities and development in our nation’s science and engineering, particularly MS & E.
Therefore, we expect that many researchers and engineers would apply to our symposium positively.
The topics might be not restricted only to biological field, but also to more versatile advanced ones, even though the research activities and results might not be at matured stages yet.
Last year, this symposium started as “KOSEN (National Institute of Technology) Symposium”.
However, we would like to removed such a restriction this time due to the reason mentioned above.
And we are looking forward to positive proposals for innovative and novel trials by all of you, many positive applicants in MS & E!
