We welcome you all to join the workshop, “New Research Crossroads in Molecular Conductors and Magnets”, which will be held at the Nagoya University on Sept. 2nd & 3rd, as a satellite meeting of ICMM2016.
Nagoya, the venue for this satellite meeting, is located as the center of Honshu, the main island of Japan, at one hour from the Centrair Japan International Airport (Centrair). Nagoya has a long history and was developed as the castle town of the Owari, one of the three branches of the ruling Tokugawa family during the Edo Period. In Nagoya, traditional industries like ceramics and textile, and today’s key industries like automobile, aviation and machine tools have also been developed. Today Nagoya is playing an important role in Japan’s industrial society. The Toyota Motor Corporation maintains its headquarters just outside of Nagoya. Nagoya University has been developed in this city, and is proud of having produced six Nobel Prize laureates.
In this workshop we will discuss the latest developments in the areas of molecular conductors and magnets, from synthesis and characterization through to application, focusing on their new interdisciplinary aspects within organic electronics/spintronics, solid-state electrochemistry, nanotechnologies, biosciences, etc.
We are looking forward to welcoming you in Nagoya with this world-class research excellence atmosphere, for Pre-ICMM2016
