On May 15, the 6th Janus Materials Conference was successfully held in Wutongyu Academic Exchange Center of Huazhong University of Science and Technology (HUST). Initiated by Prof. Yang Zhenzhong of Tsinghua University in 2015, this conference has been held 5 times in Beijing, which aims to provide an academic exchange platform for scholars to share new thoughts, new technologies and applied researches on Janus materials, thus promoting the development of Janus materials.
This conference is jointly held by the School of Chemistry and Chemical Engineering (HUST), Key Laboratory of Material Chemistry for Energy Conversion and Storage (HUST), and Biomedical and Protective Materials Engineering Research Center of Hubei Province, with Prof. Yang Zhenzhong of Tsinghua University and Prof. Zhu Jintao of HUST as co-chairmen.
Xie Xiaolin, the Vice President of HUST, Zhu Jintao, the Dean of the School of Chemistry and Chemical Engineering, Zhu Qijun, the Vice Dean of the School of Chemistry and Chemical Engineering and Zhao Qiang, the Vice Dean of the School of Chemistry and Chemical Engineering were present at the conference. More than 40 experts and scholars from 31 universities and research institutes including Tsinghua University, Fudan University, Zhejiang University, and Institute of Chemistry of Chinese Academy of Sciences were invited. In addition, faculties and postgraduate students from the School of Chemistry and Chemical Engineering (HUST) also attended this conference.
Prof. Xie Xiaolin, Vice President of HUST was giving the welcome speech
