Enhancement of Research Performance International Symposium


The 6th Symposium for the Core Research Cluster for Materials Science is held once a year to promote international interdisciplinary research among the Cluster's researchers, as well as to communicate the Center's research activities both domestically and internationally.

Upcoming Symposium

Seventh Symposium: November 28 (Tue.) - December 1 (Fri.), 2023.

Previous Symposia

In 2022, the symposium was held jointly with the 6th symposium for the Core Research Clusters for Spintronics and the 5th Symposium on International Joint Graduate Program in Materials Science.
As for CRCMS, two project leaders from each of the four areas collaborated in planning and organizing the sessions, and each session had three invited speakers. There were 71 poster presentations throughout the symposium, and eight were presented with Best Poster Awards.
