Pre-Conference of ICMM2016 in Sendai

Scientists in the world researching on molecular magnetic materials will gather in Sendai, Japan in September 4-8, 2016. Namely, 15th International Conference on Molecule-based Magnets (ICMM2016) will be held in Sendai. Taking this occasion, we will have a satellite meeting as a pre-conference of ICMM2016 in the same city, Sendai.
In this meeting, we welcome much wider subjects and materials including electronic conductors, ionic conductors, gas adsorption properties in MOFs, dielectric properties, supramolecular chemistry for materials, their synergistic materials, and etc, for discussion, not only on molecular magnetism mainly focused in ICMM2016. We will, in particular, provide an occasion to have your presentation for young scientists, namely as a meeting for rising stars in the field/subject of molecular functional materials and molecular related magnetism.
This workshop will consist of three contributions, tutorial lectures (keynote lectures) , invited talks, and poster presentations. Among them, invited talks will be, in part, chosen from the list of members who submitted their abstracts to ICMM2016 main conference. 
The registration fee is free of charge. So, please join the meeting to have discussion on current trend of molecular functional materials and molecular related magnetism before attending the main conference of ICMM2016.

For an oral presentation

Basically, all oral presentations consist of invited talks, some of which will be chosen from the list of members who submitted their abstracts to ICMM2016 main conference. The members of organizing committee of this meeting and the local organizing committee of ICMM2016 main conference will chose candidates and contact them.
If you wish to have a talk preferentially in this meeting than the main conference ICMM2016, please contact us. In particular, we welcome young researchers who want to appeal your researchs and science.

For a poster presentation

If you wish to join the meeting as a poster presenter, please check the term of 'Poster Presentations' below. Also for students and post-doctors, not only for staffs, we welcome.

For participants

The registration fee is free of charge, and you can join the meeting freely.

For poster presentation, you can download a template for your presentation abstract and registration, and then, please submit it via the e-mail: func-mol2016@imr.tohoku.ac.jp
We will reply you imidiately for the receipt of your submission (not acceptance of your presentation!), and subsequently, will inform you about the acceptance of the presentation by e-mail.
Notice that the poster presentation will basically be accepted in order of arrival on the abstract submission (however, applications from the same group should be considered whether accepted or not). If the poster number was achieved to the limit, we will stop the acceptance despite before the deadline.

Tentative Schedule (@2016.8.19)

We made current tentative schedule for Pre-ICMM@IMR, Sendai. This schedule may be a part modified according to the circumustances.

Click the schedule to see its full scale version.

You can reach to IMR from Sendai Station on foot (15 min). If you have any heavy baggages, you can take a taxi (10 min). At that time, you can say to taxi driver, "KINKEN" of Tohoku University.



The lecture hole for the workshop is at 2nd Building of IMR. You can enter the main gate of IMR. You can find it immediately.



From IMR to The Sendai International Center, you can walk (~15 min). Also you can take a subway from Aoba-dori Ichiban-cho St. to International Center St.



On the approach to Sendai, you can check the relevant page in the ICMM2016 URL.  TRAVEL to SENDAI  

This workshop will be held in the schedule of September 3-4, 2016 (just before the term of ICMM2016) in IMR, Tohoku University, Sendai, which is the same city for ICMM2016 and is very close from Sendai downtown and Sendai International Conference Center (the venue for ICMM2016). You can approach them on foot. So, you can take a hotel from ICMM URL. ACCOMMODATION
