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, , the conference aims to provide an academic exchange platform for scholars to share new thoughts, new technologies and applied researches on Janus materials, thus promoting their development.
The 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 the Institute of Chemistry of Chinese Academy of Sciences were invited. In addition, faculty and postgraduate students from the School of Chemistry and Chemical Engineering (HUST) attended the conference.
Prof. Xie Xiaolin, Vice President of HUST gave a welcome speech.
Prof. Yang Zhenzhong, Co-chairman gave an opening speech.
Prof. Zhu Jintao, Co-chairman and Dean of the School of Chemistry and Chemical Engineering gave an introduction to the school.
The opening ceremony was held by Prof. Liang Fuxin, general secretary of the conference and associate professor of Tsinghua University. Prof. Xie Xiaolin gave a welcome speech at the opening ceremony and gave an overview of HUST and the School of Chemistry and Chemical Engineering.
