Invitation Message

On behalf of the organizing committee of the 5th Asian Silicon Symposium (ASiS-5) held jointly with the 3rd International Symposium on Applied Silicon Chemistry (ISASC-3), I have the honor of inviting you to the symposium, which will be held at Lotte City Hotel Jeju, Jeju Island, Korea on October 18-21, 2015.
The theme of this upcoming symposium, "New Opportunity and Challenge in Silicon Chemistry" has been chosen to provide an opportunity for academic and industrial scientists to present and discuss the latest and most exciting aspects of silicon chemistry. The symposium program will include scientific programs such as plenary, invited, contributed papers, and poster presentations as well as social activities such as the welcome mixer, banquet, and one-day excursion. It will also be an invaluable chance for participants to expand their network with professionals and distinguished invited lecturers from around the world. We cordially invite you to the 2015 Symposium on Jeju Island.

About the ASiS & ISASC

The Asian Silicon Symposium (ASiS) takes place in Asia biennially and is hosted in turn by the Silicon Societies of Japan, Korea, and China. At the ASiS meeting, all aspects of silicon chemistry are presented and discussed by both professionals and students who are working in academic and industrial fields in Asia. The ASiS meeting is also open to the world’s silicon community. Previous ASiS meetings were successfully held in Miyagi, Japan in 2007 (ASiS-1), at Jeju, Korea in 2008 (ASiS-2), at Hangzhou, China in 2010 (ASiS-3), and at Tsukuba, Japan in 2012 (ASiS-4). 
The International Symposium on Applied Silicon Chemistry (ISASC) is held triennially and was founded by the Research and Education Center for Advanced Silicon Materials (RECASM), which is affiliated with Yonsei University and KCC. After the 1st ISASC at Yonsei University in Wonju in 2010, the Korean Silicon Society (KSiS) was established in 2011. Subsequently, it became the host of the ISASC, which provides a forum for scientists interested in silicon materials to present and discuss all aspects of applied silicon chemistry. The ISASC-2 was successfully held at the Korea Institute of Science and Technology (KIST) in Seoul on October 24-25, 2013.
