Important Announcement:
Cancellation of the Symposium

As a safety measure for the new coronavirus infection, we cancel the "MANA International Symposium 2020 jointly with ICYS" which has been scheduled for 1-3 March 2020.

As the chairman of the symposium, I feel extremely sorry for this cancellation and am looking forward to meeting with all of you in the next MANA International Symposium.

Best regards,
Tomo Nakayama
Chairman of the MANA International Symposium


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 13th MANA International Symposium (jointly organized with ICYS: International Center for Young Scientists), we design the symposium to overview present status and future prospects of “New Trends in Materials Nanoarchitectonics”. In addition to keynote and invited speakers, 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.
