The International Center for Materials Nanoarchitectonics (MANA) has held the MANA International Symposium every year to discuss the current status and the future perspective of materials science and technology based on state-of-the-art nanotechnology, inviting many distinguished scientists including Nobel laureates from around the world. This 8th MANA International Symposium will discuss “Nano Revolution for the Future” at four sessions: 1) Nano-Materials, 2) Nano-System, 3) Nano-Power, and 4) Nano-Life. Various poster sessions are also scheduled.
We hope many scientists who are interested in materials science and technology will join this symposium and obtain fresh inspiration from the talks and discussions.
MANA was founded in October 2007 with the support of the World Premier International Research Center Initiative (WPI Program) of Japan’s Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (MEXT). MANA’s host institution, National Institute for Materials Science (NIMS), is the only non-university organization out of nine successful programs to host a WPI center.
