On behalf of the organizing committee, we are pleased to invite you to the 34th International Japan-Korea Seminar on Ceramics (J-K Ceramics 34) to be held at Hamanako Royal Hotel in Hamamatsu, Japan, on November 22-25, 2017. This seminar has been held yearly since 1984 in Japan and Korea alternately in order to promote the exchange of science and technology of ceramics among Japanese, Korean and the other asian researchers. Since 1997 (the 14th Seminar), it has been open to international researchers and scientists. The scientific session will be constructed of plenary and oral presentation as well as poster presentation on theories, properties, processing and applications of ceramic materials, including advanced thin films and traditional ceramics. From this year, we will stimulate and encourage the young ceramists including students to have poster award, except for the young researcher’s award for oral presentation.

Hamamatsu, the venue of this seminar, is located at the center part of Japan and therefore, easy to access from foreign countries, because we can access to Hamamatsu from 3 International airports within 3 hours (Narita (3 hours), Kansai (2.5 hours), and Chubu(Centrair; 1.5 hours)). Hamamatsu is the historical place and we have big Hamana lake famous as a mecca of fishing, and near Mt. Fuji. Hamamatsu is also famous for music festival and automobile industry, as well as the delicious “Unagi (Sea Eel)”. Now, Hamamastu is focused from whole of Japan because of the Taiga (Big River) Drama, “Naotora”, of NHK.

We believe that the J-K Ceramics 34 will meet your expectations with rewarding scientific, technological, social and cultural experiences for all of you. We cordially invite you and look forward to seeing you in Hamamatsu, Japan in 2017.
