Leading scientists from Taiwan and Russia discussing the development of novel promising materials in Tomsk

The joint symposium of Taiwan-Russian research cooperation Development of Functional Materials of Different Applications starts on October 23. Taiwan is represented by scientists from leading universities such as the National University of Taiwan and the National Tsing Hua University. Tomsk Polytechnic University is the co-organizer of this important scientific event. 

The symposium will be held at the Rubin Congress Center (16 Akademicheskiy Ave.) during two days. The opening of the symposium is scheduled at 10 am. The full agenda is available at the link.

Russia will be represented by universities and research institutes of the Siberian Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences in Tomsk and Novosibirsk. Scientists from the National Tsing Hua University, the National Taiwan University of Science and Technology, the National Cheng-Kung University, and the National University of Taiwan will represent Taiwan. 


Participants of the symposium will discuss new advancements in the development of new materials and technologies of various applications ranging from mechanical engineering and green technologies to quantum computers. 


Professor Sinn-Wen Chen, Vice President of the National Tsing Hua University will present new achievements in the field of thermoelectric materials. It refers to various metal alloys capable to convert heat into electricity. Professor Hsi-Sheng Teng from the National Cheng-Kung University will present a research on graphene oxide quantum dots for photocatalysis and bioimaging. Detailed visualization of objects inside the body including bones and soft tissues will make it possible to more effectively diagnose and monitor many diseases and achieve better results for patients, especially in the prevention of stroke and the fight against cancer.

Russian science will be represented by the RAS Academician Vasiliy Fomin from the Khristianovich Institute of Theoretical and Applied Mechanics SB RAS. He is a founder of the scientific school on modeling of shock-wave processes in multicomponent and heterogeneous media. Academician Viktor Panin, TPU professor, will present new breakthroughs in mesomechanics of self-organization of processes of multiscale hierarchically organized solids and the development of scientific foundations for additive technology to create multilayer materials.

The Ministry of Science and Technology of Taiwan (MOST) and the Siberian Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences (SB RAS) are the main organizers of the symposium.
