|6. Long description||The Society of Fiber Science and Technology, Japan has the memorial symposium jointly with the annual conference of our society on June 8, 2011 for better understanding, enhancement of interest in fiber chemistry and technology, and increasing enthusiasm for a creative future. Fiber science has a long history and supports the modernization of our country. During this period, fiber science is always walking along with the chemistry. Our society invites three distinguished speakers from China, Japan and Europe to give a nice opportunity to verification of the role of chemistry in fiber science. Invited speakers and titles are as follows; Prof. Meifang Zhu "Structure design & functional construction of hybrid fiber materials", Prof. Seizo Miyata "Carbone and nitrogen compounds for platinum-free catalyst", and Prof. Vladan Koncar gResearch & education in France at GEMTEX/ENSAIT, and smart textiles and multifunctional fibers, overview - situation in Europeh. This symposium will give the fiber scientists deep understanding for fiber chemistry and some inspirations toward the creative future.
