    A homepage for the upcoming S-Membrane International Conference (SMIC-2019) is now open !!


    The School of Science and Technology, Gunma University was originally established as a private school by the citizen of Kiryu in 1896 for education of textile technology, which was the state-of-art technology in Japan. Beyond a century, the activity has expanded to the wider fields, including chemistry, biology, and mechanics, electronics, informatics, and civil engineering, but the cutting-edges of textile technology still survive in each filed. With taking advantage of this long history of "textile" in Kiryu, we are now happy to announce the S-Membrane International Conference 2019 (SMIC-2019). Within this international meeting, all the researchers with the interests for such textile and polymer related interdisciplinary sciences are very welcome to join. We believe that texturing the wider backgrounds releases the past restriction of the fields, realizing the renaissance of textured materials from Kiryu !!

    Hosted by S-membrane Project at Gunma Uni.
