You are cordially invited to participate in CEMS International Symposium on Supramolecular Chemistry & Functional Materials 2019 (CEMSupra 2019) to be held in Tokyo, Japan on December 9-10, 2019.

RIKEN Center for Emergent Matter Science (CEMS) has been launched in April 2013, unifying the fundamentals of physics, chemistry, and electronics in RIKEN. As the fundamental principle of this center, we focus on ‘emergent’ phenomena, in which multiple elements, when assembled together, exhibit prominent properties that could not be predicted from the individual elements. The ultimate goal of CEMS is to develop radical energy solutions based on ‘emergent’ materials. To realize this mission, three divisions, majoring in physics, chemistry, and electronics, are to cooperate together closely and actively.

As a part of the activity of CEMS, we are organizing this symposium whose scope covers all aspects of supramolecular chemistry and its application to functional materials, including smart surfaces, energy conversion systems, and bio-related materials. The aim of this symposium is to provide a scientific forum to exchange and share experiences, ideas, and research results from the distinguished speakers, to discuss recent advances and the scientific challenges encountered in this field, to identify thae future research directions, to promote scientific exchange among the participants, and also to initiate some important collaborative research projects.

CEMSupra is now being established as the fragship symposium in this field. In the first CEMSupra 2013, we invited 15 eminent scientists and there were more than 320 turnout and 62 posters during the symposium. CEMSupra 2016 was even more successful with more than 400 turnout, 102 posters and 14 great invited speakers. The latest CEMSupra 2018 with 11 invited speakers counts 400 turnouts and the record-high 134 poster presentations. We were very pleased to hear from the participants that they had a great time in the symposium. In CEMSupra 2019, we will invite the distinguished scientists from round the world to speak at the symposium. We hope you can enjoy the symposium by interacting with all the speakes and participants through the talks and the poster sessions.

We look forward to seeing you in Tokyo at CEMSupra 2019.
