Poster Presentations

The Poster Session will be held on the evening of 25 June and the morning of 26 June.

Award

The organizing committee of M&BE10 established the Student Presentation Award and the Young Scientist Presentation Award to encourage students and young scientists who have been working diligently in this research field. The award winners will be announced at the closing ceremony on 27 June 2019.

Student Presentation Award

Students who made excellent presentations will be awarded with the M&BE10 Student Presentation Award. All presenters without regard to oral and poster categorized as students, who are enrolled in a technical college, a university or a graduate school, are automatically registered as candidates for this award.

Young Scientist Presentation Award

The M&BE10 Young Scientist Presentation Award will be given to young scientists who made outstanding poster or oral presentations. All young researchers who are 35 years old or younger (on 27 June 2019), excluding students, are able to apply for this award. The applicants must register at the moment of abstract submission. If you will entry this competition, please check "Entry" on the abstract submission system.

The winers of last conference are here.

Special Issue of Japanese Journal of Applied Physics

The conference presenters are strongly encouraged to submit their original or review articles based on the conference abstracts to the special issue of Japanese Journal of Applied Physics (JJAP). The submitted papers will undergo the reviewing process and will be published in March 2020. The special issue of JJAP has a privilege of providing open access through IOP Publishing for one year after the publication, which contribute to increase the visibility of your research. Note that a special rate of publication charge (20,000 JPY/article). The detailed information on the submission is to be announced.

Topics covered include

  • Fabrications and Characterization
  • Functional Materials
    (LC, polymer, soft material, photonic material etc.)
  • Organic Devices and Applications
  • Nanobiotechnology and Biomedical
  • Sensors and Actuators
  • Organic Photovoltaics and Energy Harvesting

What's M&BE

Purpose

Recent progress in every aspect of science and technology related with electronics and photonics using organic molecules, polymers and bio-related materials will be discussed at the proposed conference (M&BE10). Promotion of research communications with researchers from Asian countries is also intended.

Character

Topics on basic studies such as fabrication and characterization of thin films, interfacial phenomena, spectroscopy, and single-molecule manipulations, as well as application-oriented studies, related to LEDs, FETs, energy-harvesting devices (solar cell, thermoelectrics, piezoelectrics, etc), memory devices, biochips, biosensors and so on, are all included. A limited number of plenary and invited lectures by overseas guest speakers, as well as domestic guest speakers, will be arranged. Contributed papers will be presented in both oral and poster sessions.

History

The Molecular Electronics and Bioelectronics Division of the Japan Society of Applied Physics has continued the organization of the biennial International Conference on Molecular Electronics and Bioelectronics (M&BE) since its inception in 2001. The first conference was held at Awaji Island, Japan in 2001, and the 2nd to 4th conferences were in Tokyo, in 2003, 2005 and 2007, and 5th conference was in Miyazaki in 2009. The 6th conference in Sendai in 2011 was unfortunately cancelled for all oral and poster presentation programs by the Great East Japan Earthquake. The 7th and 8th conference were successfully held in Fukuoka and Tokyo in 2013 and 2015, respectively. The last meeting (9th conference) took place in Ishikawa in 2017.
