Thanks to your kind support, we could carry out this symposium with great success.

The Scope of JAPAN NANO 2019 F

Nanotechnology is a basis for developing various current critical technologies on high-speed communication, sensor/actuator, low power consumption devices, and wearable devices etc. relating to IoT and AI toward a super smart society (Society 5.0). In the symposium, role and advancement of nanotechnology for realizing super smart society will be viewed together with presenting on advanced technologies and their applications for nano-characterization, nano/microfabrication, molecules/materials synthesis which Nanotechnology Platform covers.
