Sol-Gel 2015 - Kyoto, Japan
> Sol-Gel 2015 - Kyoto, Japan
The international Sol-Gel conference came back to Kyoto in 28-years after. The most advanced topics in materials science had been discussed in the most historical and ancient capital of Japan. The conference site was suitably located in front of Kyoto station. The participants could enjoy high science in variety of research domains. In addition, they can also enjoy culture, foods and drinks of this historic city.
This biennial conference was organized by Prof. Kazuki nakanishi, Prof. Hiromitsu Koduka and Dr. Kazumi Kato from 6 to 11 of September, 2015. It attracted 372 participants from 31 countries worldwide. 2 keynote, 20 invited, 122 oral presentations, and 159 posters presented most-advanced and interesting outcomes from their research groups. Prof. Schubert presented in his keynote lecture the important fundamental aspects of the sol-gel science through molecular and synthetic approach for functionalities. Contrary, Prof. Fujishima’s keynote was more directed to an industrial importance of the sol-gel. These 2 keynote lectures indicate the diversity of sol-gel science and technology as an important feature. This is also shown by a variety of sessions exceeding 15 involved in the conference.
