Scope of Symposium

The Research Institute for Electronic Science (RIES) at Hokkaido University contains a diverse range of interdisciplinary scientific research and we have several programs in place to encourage active interactions between different research fields. The International Symposium is an important one of these programs. The objectives of this annual symposium are to facilitate the discussion of recent scientific topics and the exchange of new ideas between interdisciplinary fields. We hope that this Symposium is helpful in merging recent concepts in different scientific fields to promote the creation of new research areas and technology.

In Japanese, the character “創” (sou) represents to establish or develop something new. The theme of this year's RIES-Hokudai international symposium is based on this character, and aims to promote the creation of trans-disciplinary relationships and development of nano-technology-aided manufacture towards the next generation. Through interactions between researchers in different scientific fields, it is hoped that new trans-disciplinary relationships will be created between RIES and other institutes world-wide. Based on new ideas and technology related to nano-precision control, the creation of novel functional materials and analytical methods will help develop a broad area of research from semiconductor to biotechnology fields.

This year's symposium will be held in the Creative Research Interactive “SOUSEI” (創成) building, which is located in the north campus of Hokkaido University. This building is shared by the Nano-Technology Center of RIES, the Creative Research Interactive “SOUSEI” (a new type of research organization founded for the first time in a Japanese national university), and the Catalysis Research Center. RIES was involved in the establishment of this Creative Research Interactive “SOUSEI” (創成), placing great importance on the character SOU “創” within its name. Thus, the character “創” is used to indicate the creation of various relationships between institutes, which is the reason this character was chosen as the symbol of this year's symposium. It is our hope that this symposium will facilitate the creation of new networks between participants from throughout the world.
