The Electrochemical Society of Japan (ECSJ)

The Electrochemical Society of Japan was founded to foster scientific and industrial progress in the fields of electrochemistry and industrial physical chemistry. Rapid changes in both academic and industrial environments have been seen, with important increases in the scope covered by the discipline of electrochemistry, as well as in the circumstances affecting the industry in the intervening years. ECSJ continues to remain responsive to this rapid progress and to contribute significantly to advances in this field.


The Korean Electrochemical Society (KECS)

The Korean Society of Electrochemistry is dedicated to promoting academic and technological developments of electrochemical science in both theory and application. KECS also provides training, education, and many opportunities for researchers and engineers to make significant advancements in the field of electrochemistry-based science and technology.


The Electrochemical Society (ECS)

The Electrochemical Society’s mission is to advance theory and practice at the forefront of electrochemical and solid state science and technology, and allied subjects by encouraging research, discussion, critical assessment, and dissemination of knowledge in these fields through meetings, publications, educational opportunities, and more. Our members are making key discoveries that address global sustainability challenges such as renewable energy, food safety, water sanitation, and medical diagnosis and care.


Japan Society of Applied Physics (JSAP)

The Society of Polymer Science, Japan (SPSJ), a Public Interest Incorporated Association, is mainly composed of polymer scientists, engineers and managers in academia, industries and governmental institutions.  Its primary role is to contribute to the development of polymer science and technology in Japan and the world as well.

Established in 1951 and having around 10,000 members from Japan and worldwide, SPSJ is now one of the oldest and largest organizations dedicated to polymers(macromolecules) and will have its 70th anniversary in 2021. SPSJ organizes eight regional chapters and a special chapter for management people in polymer industries in Japan.

SPSJ sponsors three major meetings a year, and eight lecture meetings every year discussing current topics on polymer science and technology or relevant general issues. SPSJ has also organized the International Polymer Conference (IPC) every two or three years since 1984, with the aim of contributing to international scientific exchange among the countries worldwide.

SPSJ has 21 research groups covering various fields of polymer science and technology, such as polymer gels, polymer surface & interface, plastic films, biomedical polymers, adhesion and coatings, super molecule, etc. Each research group is very active with study and lecture meetings for the purpose of information exchange in each research area.

SPSJ monthly publishes its organ “Kobunshi: High Polymers, Japan” which is delivered to every member and “Polymer Journal (in English)” which is the international peer-reviewed journal.


Chinese Society of Electrochemistry (CSE)

The Chinese Society of Electrochemistry (CSE), was founded in the first Nation Electrochemical Conference, in 25th -26th June, 1988. The committee adopted the rotation Chairman system, which reappoints Chairmen every four years. The first Chairmen consisted of Zhao-Wu Tian, Chuan-Sin Cha, and Hao-Qing Wu. The current batch of Chairmen is Li-Jun Wan and Shi-Gang Sun. CSE organizes biennial regular academic conferences of China electrochemistry, i.e. National Conference on Electrochemistry (NCE). The first NCE was held in 1988, where only 16 delegates attended the meeting. In 2019, more than 5,000 delegates coming from 600 institution attended the 20th NCE.

Currently, CSE has 9 branches of: (1) Analysis Electrochemistry, (2) Bioelectrochemistry, (3) Chemical Power Sources, (4) Fuel Celsl, (5) Nanoelectrochemistry, (6) Material-electrochemistry, (7) Industrial and Organic Electrochemistry, (8) Physical Electrochemistry, (9) Photoelectrochemistry.

The CSE also established a series of Awards aiming at commending outstanding contributors in the electrochemical field, consisting of Electrochemical Achievement Award of China, Electrochemical Contribution Award of China, and Electrochemical Youth Award of China. The CSE has also set up cooperation and exchanges with international electrochemical communities, for example, International Society of Electrochemistry (ISE), and Electrochemical Society (ECS).


Semiconductor Division, Korean Physical Society (KPS)

It has been more than sixty years since the Korean Physical Society (KPS) was founded in 1952 during the Korean War. Since then, the KPS has dedicated itself to developing research in physics and to promoting the applications and the extension of such research and further contributed to the development of science. As a result, the KPS has progressed steadily to become one of the most influential academic societies in Korea which has now 12 divisions, 8 regional branches, and more than 15,000 active members. Semiconductor Physics Division of the KPS was founded in 1993 in order to promote and extend the scientific understanding and technological development on semiconductors. Now, the Semiconductor Physics Division of the KPS has about 650 members and holds an international biennial symposium, International Symposium on the Physics of Semiconductors and Applications (ISPSA) since 1982. This symposium covers all of semiconductor fields ranging from fundamental physics to the newest technologies and devices, such as graphenes, topological insulators, nano-bio devices, green energy technologies, and more.
