MANA INTERNATIONAL SYMPOSIUM 2019 jointly with ICYS Toward perceptive nanomaterials, devices and systems march 4th to 6th

Scope of MANA International Symposium 2019

The International Center for Materials Nanoarchitectonics (WPI-MANA), as its name implies, is attempting to create a new paradigm for materials science, called “nanoarchitectonics”, based on an innovative nanotechnology. For this purpose, WPI-MANA has held the MANA International Symposium every year to discuss the current status and the future perspective of materials science based on the state-of-the-art nanotechnology together with many distinguished scientists and young scientists from around the world.

In the 12th MANA International Symposium (jointly with ICYS: International Center for Young Scientists), we design the symposium to initiate discussion about “Nano Perceptive Materials, Devices, and Systems”. In addition to guest lectures renowned nanotechnology and material science achievements in relevant research fields, the researchers from MANA and ICYS will present their latest findings for extensive discussion for future.

We hope many scientists, researchers and students who are interested in materials science and technology will join this symposium and obtain fresh inspiration from the talks and discussions towards the future.
