Dear fellow scientists,

We are pleased to cordially invite you to attend the CEMS International Symposium on Supramolecular Chemistry & Functional Materials 2024 (CEMSupra 2024) to be held in Tokyo, Japan on January 18-19, 2024.

RIKEN Center for Emergent Matter Science (CEMS) was established in April 2013, combining the principles of physics, chemistry, and electronics at RIKEN. The basic principle of our center revolves around the study of "emergent" phenomena, in which the collective assembly of multiple elements exhibits remarkable properties that cannot be predicted from the individual components. The ultimate goal of CEMS is to develop breakthrough energy solutions based on these emergent materials. To accomplish this mission, our center's three divisions, specializing in physics, chemistry, and electronics, work together and synergistically.

As part of our ongoing efforts, we are organizing this symposium, which encompasses all aspects of supramolecular chemistry and its applications to functional materials. The symposium will cover topics such as smart surfaces, energy conversion systems and bio-related materials. Our goal is to provide a scientific platform for the exchange and sharing of experiences, ideas, and research results among distinguished speakers. By discussing recent advances and scientific challenges in the field, we aim to identify future research directions, foster scientific exchange among participants, and initiate important collaborative research projects.

CEMSupra has become the flagship symposium in the field. The inaugural CEMSupra in 2013 featured 15 distinguished scientists and witnessed an impressive turnout of over 320 participants, including 62 poster presentations. CEMSupra 2016 exceeded expectations with more than 400 attendees, 102 posters, and 14 distinguished invited speakers. CEMSupra 2018 and CEMSupra 2019 have been equally successful. The positive feedback we received from attendees about their experience at the symposium was truly gratifying. For CEMSupra 2024, we are honored to invite distinguished scientists from around the world to speak at the symposium. We encourage you to take advantage of the opportunity to interact with the speakers and attendees through insightful presentations and engaging poster sessions.

We look forward to your presence at CEMSupra 2024 in Tokyo, where we believe you will find inspiration, collaboration, and an enriching experience.
