GIST-NCTU-NAIST International Joint Symposium 2013 :GNN Joint Symposium on Innovative Materials for Future Technology

Date: November 21-26, 2013 Place: Department of Materials Science, NAIST, Nara, Japan

NAIST will host the 4th GIST-NCTU-NAIST International Joint Symposium on Advanced Materials:GNN Joint Symposium on Innovative Materials for Future Technology at Nara, Japan. We welcome faculty members and students to participate in this joint symposium. This symposium is partly sponsored by the “Global Initiatives Program for Promoting Overseas Collaborative Research Toward Graduate Education in Biological Sciences, Nano Science, and Information Technology (Global Initiatives Program)” from MEXT. The Global Initiative Program encourages students to participate in international workshops, give presentations, and take part in discussions in English in order to develop communication skills, exchange views on research with fellow graduate students, and develop ties with researchers and students from around the globe. To facilitate student’s contribution to the symposium we involve Ph.D students candidates in the Organizing Committee. They are expected to play active roles in various situations of the symposium and to formulate a detailed program. Please encourage your students to give oral presentations in the symposium. We will accept 3-4 oral student talks and four invited lectures by faculties from each institute. In addition, we would like to call for poster presentations from students. Students giving oral presentations are also welcome to present in the poster session. In addition to the symposium, other events for promoting friendship among us, especially our students, will also be planned. We cordially appreciate your kind understanding and cooperation in the 4th GNN symposium.
