This symposium will highlight on syntheses of functional materials for future applications. We discuss chemical and physical processes, focusing on low and high temperature processes, and on low and high energy processes. We also discuss on relations among structures, properties and performances of variety of materials. The symposium covers materials chemistry and materials physics for biomaterials, thin films, metals, semiconductors, optoelectronic materials, fine ceramics, magnetics, superconductors, polymers, meso-materials, nano-materials and composites, etc. Surface and interface sciences, and materials degradations and reliability, are also discussed relating to the syntheses. We arrange a special session on electrochemical syntheses and catalytic materials such as TiO2 with respect to a Keynote Talk by Prof. Akira Fujishima.
