Welcome Message

Welcome to the 9th EPM conference

Electromagnetic Processing of Materials (EPM) has been widely applied for improving properties of materials and it is also expected to be extended to various materials processes due to unique advantages of electromagnetic interactions. The research field of EPM covers liquid metal processing, casting and solidification of metallic alloys, induction heating, fabrication of inorganic / organic crystals, plasma processing, recycling and separation. This conference is traditionally open for any kind of materials processing involving electric and / or magnetic fields. It brings together leading academics, researchers and engineers from industry, and commercial software developers. Any suggestions on the topics and the session are appreciated for fruitful meeting.

The series of EPM conferences was initiated in 1994 by Prof. S. Asai (Japan) and Prof. M. Garnier (France). It takes place every three years alternating between Europa and Asia (Nagoya 1994, Paris 1997, Nagoya 2000, Lyon 2003, Sendai 2006, Dresden 2009, Beijing 2012, Cannes 2015).

The venue of the 9th EPM conference is Awaji Yumebutai international conference center (Awaji Island, Hyogo, Japan). Awaji Island is the largest island in the Seto Inland Sea, being connected to Kobe by the longest suspension bridge in the world (Akashi Kaikyo Bridge) and is also connected to Tokushima by another long bridge (Naruto Bridge). The conference venue is surrounded by a rich natural environment and has easy access from Kansai international airport, Shin-Kobe station (super-express trains), downtown of Kobe (20km), Osaka (40km) and Kyoto (70km).

We are looking forward to welcome you in Awaji Island, Hyogo, Japan.
