You are coordinately invited to attend the exciting event of the 8th Japan-China Symposium on Ferroelectric Materials and Their Applications (JCFMA8) in the city of Tsukuba (Japan).

Ferroelectric and related materials are among the most important functional materials up to date. In the past 20 years, significant progress has been achieved in both fundamental research and practical applications of ferroelectric materials, while China and Japan are two of the most active countries. The annual meeting of China-Japan Symposium on Ferroelectric Materials and Their Applications is held in order to improve the communication and cooperation between the researchers of the two countries. Eminent scholars in this community from the two countries will be invited to attend this conference, focusing on the fundamental problems and applications of ferroelectric materials. The topics will include a broad range, covering ferroelectrics, pyroelectrics, piezoelectrics, dielectrics, nanocarbons, and their integration to enable new multifunctional devices, including sensors, actuators, transducers, memories, capacitors, electro-optic devices, magnetic devices, medical devices, and energy harvesting and storage devices. We warmly welcome all of experts, scholars and students from colleges, research institutions and companies to attend this conference.
