Greetings from the President

Welcome to the the Japan Society for Molecular Science!

This year is the 10th anniversary of the Society since its establishment in 2006. This society has been serving to the community of molecular science, a discipline that pursues an understanding of the structure, properties and reactivity of molecules.

Among various activities, the Annual Meeting of the Society is the biggest event and has been providing a platform for the community. Over 1000 attendees participate in the Meeting to present their latest findings and exchange information. Thus, participants of the Meeting can communicate people in the community and learn latest advancement in this field. In addition, this Meeting also plays an important role in educating young scientists and graduate students through active discussions in the Meeting.

In addition to the Annual Meeting, the Society provides Awards for distinguished researchers, supports students, and organizes the Asian International Symposium in collaboration with the Chemical Society of Japan.

In the first decade since the establishment of the Japan Society of Molecular Science, the various functions of the society have been built in, and our scientific meetings have gained increasing participation. Science has been developed by interdisciplinary attempts and has no national borders. Thus, we would like to promote the interdisciplinary aspect of our activities and try to establish international environment in the Annual Meeting step-by-step.

We appreciate your continued participation in the Society and support for our activities.

Yoshiyasu Matsumoto,
