Third Japan-US Workshop on Combinatorial Material Science and Technology



Winnie K. Wong-Ng


The Third Japan-US workshop on Combinatorial Material Science and Technology took place at the Loisir Hotel in Naha City on the historical island, Okinawa, Japan, from December 7 to December 10, 2004. This workshop was the third of a series of Japan-US Combinatorial Materials Exploration and Technology (COMET) workshops. The 2004 workshop, which was very much of the Gordon Conference Style , was organized by members of COMET, and was supported by the National Institute for Materials Science (NIMS), Japan Society for the Promotion of Sciences (JSPS), Nanotechnology Researchers Network Center of Japan (Nanonet), and Combinatorial Sciences & Materials Informatics Collaboratory (COSMIC). NIMS has a close collaboration with the Materials Science and Engineering Laboratory (MSEL) of National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). A number of officials and scientists from NIST were invited as participants and speakers at this workshop. This successful scientific workshop was well planned - with a very rich scientific and social program. The program featured a total of 64 presentations which included plenary talks, invited talks, contributed talks, and a poster session. There were 2 keynote speeches, 1 special lecture, 21 other invited lectures, and 27 poster presentations. A total of approximately 80 attendees from Europe, Asia, and North America participated in this three-day workshop. Participants included managers and leading researchers from government, industrial and university laboratories.
