 ISAWST-2 will be held in Nagoya focusing on advanced water science and technologies. Recently, human has encountered serious problems related to water such as water shortage crisis, polluted water contaminated by heavy metal, organic matter, biological material and radiation. On the other hands, the progress in advanced technology related to water is outstanding, e.g., cleaning process for semiconductor, healthcare and medical, the control of water behavior of fuel cell and so on. Thus the field of advanced water science and technology has two aspects for human, i.e., a solution for global crisis and a solution for quality of life. The symposium will have invited talks and contributed oral/poster presentations, and provide an opportunity for scientists and engineers to exchange information and ideas on new scientific understandings, novel technique and new industrial applications of water-related technology.
