greengreengreengreengreenThis was my first time to join this kind of party, it made me feel surprised, Through this pleasant way of communication, I could interact with professors from different countries and factory managers, enhancing the understanding between us.

Ion Analysis Symposium December 9th -10th
Discusstion Topics;
1) Detection and separation systems in IC
2) Capillary electrophoresis and microchip-based separation
3) Flow Injection Analysis
4) Sample preparation methods
5) Application to determination of ionic species in all areas

greengreengreengreengreenThis symposium brought together researchers from Japan, China, South Korea and some South-East Asian countries. They brought their own research results and discussed how to develop technology and products. With these aims, they presented their planned publications. Through this occasion I was able to understand and learn a lot of new knowledge. I also got a lot of support and advice form experts. I was very glad to have this chance to attend this academic exchange.Below, let me introduce a selection of the Symposium presenters.

Poster Session

greengreengreengreengreenDuring the poster discussion over two days, researchers from different countries displayed their respective research. I met a lot of famous professors and experts, and I was able to communicate with them. From them I learned a lot about the professional knowledge and information which will be useful for me.

At Banquet

greengreengreengreengreenEach participant was present at the dinner party. Through this dinner, everyone once again made a profound exchange and understanding as well as for our future direction of research and technical exchanges between nations, so we can all have clearer objectives.
greengreengreengreengreenAs many as 180 participants attended this symposium, many have published their research achievements or technical development results, and many are providing knowledges, advice and assistance to developing countries to solve problems. Thought this exchange I met a lot of professors and got know my research deeply and its insufficiencies, so I am thankful to Prof. Tanaka and Prof. Nakagoshi who gave me such learning opportunities.
