We would also like to thank everyone who participated, our chairpersons, Professor Koichiro Ohno (Kyushu University/JEMEA new director), Professor Shuntaro Tsubaki (Kyushu University/JEMEA director), and the support of IEEE MTT-S Japan/Kansai/Nagoya Chapters/ The Society of Chemical Engineers, a public interest incorporated association / The Polymer Science Society of Japan, a public interest incorporated association / The Japan Society for Resources and Materials Science, a general incorporated association / The Catalysis Society of Japan, a general incorporated association / The Japan Electroheat Center (JEHC) / The Chemical Society of Japan, a public interest incorporated association
We would also like to thank everyone at the Japan Iron and Steel Institute, a general incorporated association, for their assistance in introducing us to their members.


Since the lecture was in English, the two chairpersons, representing the members, posed many questions to the lecturer from their expert standpoints, working hard to deepen the understanding of the content of the lecture. I received it. We have also received permission from the lecturers to ask questions directly using the contact information for each lecturer in the abstract, so we hope that participants will take advantage of this valuable lecture to exchange information with the lecturers. Please do it. (To all participants: Surveys are being accepted until May 31st. Please click on the red banner on the lecture page.)



【Future event information】


Our society plans to hold the following events in the future. 

5GCMEA, an international microwave conference, will be held from 7/22 to 25/2024, hosted by JEMEA. It will be held at Kyushu University Ito Campus Shiiki Hall. We are accepting applications for presentations until May 31st, and since we are recruiting for the JEMEA session, you can choose Japanese or English as your presentation language. Also Early registration has been extended to June 15th, so we ask all selected presenters, general participants, and companies exhibiting equipment to register two invited employees.
