General Information

The symposium

Dear Colleagues,

On behalf of the organizing committee, I wish to extend a cordial invitation to you to attend the 1st International Symposium on Interactive Materials Science Cadet Program (iSIMSC-1), to be held in Osaka, Japan. The meeting will be held at Hotel Hankyu Expo Park in Osaka, Japan, from 16 November to 19 November  2014.

This symposium is hosted by Osaka University Program for Leading Graduate Schools “Interactive Materials Science Cadet Program”. The program aims to educate talented graduate students by cultivating ‘Materials Science Cadets’ with the skills to occupy senior research positions in the materials science and production sectors, with the full support of faculty members of Osaka University from a wide range of materials science fields including physics and chemistry. The program is also designed to apply the synergistic benefits of dialogic and interactive approaches to various facets of materials science education and research. In the context of the program, we discuss broad topics on materials science in this symposium to share a common interest in the field.

Your participation will definitely enrich the symposium and ensure its success. We truly look forward to welcoming you to Osaka this fall.

Yours sincerely,

Tsuyoshi Kimura
Chairman of iSIMSC-1
