Invitation to Symposium (call for papers)

In ECO-MATES 2011, we would like to discuss the next generation eco-materials and eco-technological innovations in all industrial fields. The eco-material flow should be taken into consideration for energy saving and materials recycling. The technological innovations are necessary for establishing the resource-circulating society. We would like to cordially invite you to this symposium and would like you to include the following essential themes with respect to eco-materials and innovation for sustainable society.

  1. Eco-materials for eco-design, eco-process, eco-energy.
  2. Solid or liquid state nano-materials processing, and nano-fabrication.
  3. Light materials / Porous materials / Functional materials / Novel ceramics / Catalysts materials / Rare-earth elements.
  4. Environmentally friendly electronics and assembly / Advanced electronic materials / Semiconductors / Power electronics and packaging.
  5. Green technologies / Resource circulating manufacturing systems / 3R/Waste/Biomass.
  6. Environmentally friendly materials processing / Smart processing.
  7. Organic electronics / Photon technology / Thin film / Interconnection technology.
  8. High density electronics packaging / Micro-joining / Nano-joining / 3D assembly.
  9. Base materials (Iron and steel, Nonferrous metals, Organic materials).
  10. Welding and joining / Interface joining / Spraying / Coating / Surface treatment.

We are planning to have several special sessions and Iketani forums.
We invite proposals for individual papers related to the aforesaid themes.
You can use our on-line registration to submit your contribution.
