Symposium Overview

Micro-Nano Science & Technology Division in JSME (Japan Society of Mechanical Engineers) promotes academic activities to pioneer novel research topics on microscopic mechanics. The division encourages interdisciplinary studies to deeply understand physical/chemical/biological phenomena in micro/nano scale and to develop applied technologies. Since 2009, past seven symposiums on Micro-Nano Science & Technology have taken place successfully incorporating with the related societies of electronics and applied physics. We have promoted in-depth studies and interactions between researchers/engineers in various fields with more than 150 papers presented at each symposium for the past few years.

Thanks to the previous activities and the great effort of the committee members, the Micro-Nano Science & Technology Division has been recognized as a formal division in JSME. Today we are pleased to announce that the “International Symposium on Micro-Nano Science and Technology 2016” will be held commemorating the foundation of formal division in JSME. We invite original contributions as research papers and look forward to fruitful discussions at Tokyo, Japan.
