AIMS AND SCOPE:

Interfaces are critically important to a broad spectrum of materials and technologies. In 2003, the first International Conference on Characterization and Control of Interfaces for High Quality Advanced Materials (ICCCI2003) established an international forum for interface science and technology. In Kurashiki in 2006, the second International Conference (ICCCI2006) will continue the discussion. ICCCI 2006 will focus on interface characterization and control to design and manufacture high quality advanced materials. Interface characterization and control technology for materials synthesis, powder processing, composite processing, joining, and to control airborne particulates will be addressed by scientists and engineers from academia and industry. Additionally, joining technology for new metallic glasses and inorganic materials will be featured as a special topic.

The topics to be discussed include:

*Joining Technology for New Metallic Glasses and Inorganic Materials
*Interface Characterization for Nanoparticles and Materials
- Solid-liquid interfaces
- Composite interfaces
- Interfaces at elevated temperatures
- Interface characterization techniques and standards
*Interface Control for Nanoparticles and Materials
- Interface control for processing
- Control and design of interfaces in suspensions
- Control of interfaces at elevated temperature
*Interfaces in High-Technology Fields
- Energy and Environment
- Microsystems
- Nanotechnology
- Smart Processing Technology
*Interfaces in High-Technology Industries
- Bio-materials
- Chemicals and pigments
- Electronic materials
- Pharmaceuticals


LOCATION:
The conference will be held in the beautiful and historic city of Kurashiki in Japan, which is especially popular with tourists in the Fall. Kurashiki is within 2hrs by train from Kyoto, Osaka, and Kansai International Airport.
