We are pleased to inform you that Indian Scientists Association in Japan (ISAJ) is going to organize its 10thannual symposium entitled “Interdisciplinary Science and Technology Innovations for Sustainable Society” on December 9th, 2019 (Monday) at the Osaka University Hall in Toyonaka campus of Osaka University. 

Symposium will commemorate 10thAnniversary of ISAJ. Ever since its establishment in 2009, ISAJ has been proactively building bridges between Indian and Japanese researchers by bringing them together and encouraging them to undertake collaborative research projects mutually beneficial to both the countries. Towards these objectives, ISAJ has been organizing an interdisciplinary symposium annually to provide a platform for academicians, researchers, and students based in Japan to showcase their latest scientific achievements.

The theme of this year symposium is Science and Technology Innovations for Sustainable Society. The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), set and adopted by all United Nations members in the year 2015 requires effective use of science, technology, and innovation. Global sustainability challenges are complex and involve multiple interdependent issues such as climate change, environmental degradation, energy security, and resource depletion. Increasingly, policy-makers in government and industry are looking to science and technology innovation to provide the solutions for the sustainable economic development of society. 

Symposium will enable the scientists to reflect on how different disciplines of science, engineering, and technology can be better integrated towards creating innovative solutions to the sustainability challenges. You are cordially invited to participate in the symposium. 

Sessions will be designed around dedicated topics and will include keynote and plenary talks by eminent scientists and researchers. There will also be oral and poster presentations by the participants. 


Deadline for abstract submissionsNovember 22nd, 2019 (Closed!!)

Abstracts submission are encouraged for short oral and poster presentations on any disciplines of science and technology at
