The Division of Molecular Electronics and Bioelectronics of the Japan Society of Applied Physics is pleased to announce that The International Conference on Molecular Electronics and Bioelectronics (M&BE10) will be held in June 2019 in the beautiful ancient capital of Nara, Japan. The M&BE conference has been held biannually since 2001, and is considered to be one of the most authentic international conferences of this field held in Japan. The number of participants has grown continually and we rejoice its 10th anniversary next year.

The objective of this conference is to bring together wide aspects of recent advancement related to organic materials, devices and bio-related research from the standpoint of physics and chemistry. The M&BE conference build an interdisciplinary community that covers such fields as fabrication and structure control, characterization and material physics, functional materials, electronic and optical devices, energy conversion, nanobiotechnology, and biomedical engineering that are pertinent to organic molecules. Plenary and invited lectures will provide you up-to-date information in the forefront of this community. Submission of contributed papers, both in oral and poster sessions, are gratefully welcome. We especially encourage the young and motivated researchers from all the countries to take advantage of this opportunity.

You are cordially invited to join this exciting conference of M&BE10. This conference will furnish you excellent opportunities for sharing ideas, stimulating discussions, and exchanging information that accelerate your research.

We look forward to meeting you at Nara in June 2019.
