The Smart Processing Technology aims to develop advanced processes for materials with improved performance or new functions thorough supplying necessary energy and resources only to required portions, thereby contributing to the establishment of next generation manufacturing that can encourage industries to have the minimum impact on the environment. The First International Symposium on Smart Processing Technology was held in 2005 to discuss of the arts and future of smart processing technology for the 21st century. In 2007, The Second International Symposium (SPT'07) will be held to exchange the latest research information and continue discussion in Osaka.
