About EAS

Dear Delegates,

We are welcome all of you to the Eleventh East Asia Symposium on Functional Dyes and Advanced Materials (EAS11), held at the Department of Chemistry, National Taiwan University, Taipei, during October 18-20, 2023.

EAS started 20 years ago between the Kinka Chemical Society, Japan and the Taiwan Dyestuffs and Pigments Industrial Association, Taiwan. The first symposium was kicked off at Osaka, dated back to 2003. Prof. Hiroyuki Nakazumi from Osaka Prefecture University played an important role to connect the Kinka Chemical Society and the Taiwan Dyestuffs and Pigments Industrial Association and had found this symposium. The purpose is to bridge the industry and academic, promoting collaboration, and exchanging ideas in the related fields. Through colloquiums in the symposium, domestic and international scholars and experts in the area of functional dyes and advanced materials can discuss the scientific aspects.

Sustainability is one of the most important and urgent topics for the 21st century technologies to cope with. Besides our usual aims to continuously explore the light driven processes in photophysical, photochemical, and photobiological sciences and technology, the agenda of EAS-11 will wider the scopes to cover areas including carbon dioxide capturing and utilization, green technology, and advanced functional materials. Functional dyes, liquid crystal materials, dyes or luminescent molecules with optical applications, special polymers, biomedical optical materials, conjugated organic electronic materials, functional polymers, and other self-assembled materials such as metal organic frameworks, and covalent organic frameworks are fast-growing fields that are essential for the next key and core sciences and technology development.

The symposium provides an international forum, gathering scientists and researchers in academic and government from various disciplinaries, and enterprisers from industries to exchange the latest information on the best available technologies. In addition, the symposium will also arrange site visits with enterprises and industry, and invite art and cultural groups to perform, so that international participants can have an indelible impression of Taiwanese culture.

  • EAS11 follows previous EAS biennial series:
  • 1st Symposium: 2003 in Osaka, Japan
  • 2nd Symposium: 2005 in Taipei, Taiwan
  • 3rd Symposium: 2007 in Ulsan, Korea
  • 4th Symposium: 2009 in Osaka, Japan
  • 5th Symposium: 2011 in Hangzhou, China
  • 6th Symposium: 2013 in Hsinchu, Taiwan
  • 7th Symposium: 2015 in Osaka, Japan
  • 8th Symposium: 2017 in Thiruvananthapuram, Kerala, India
  • 9th Symposium: 2019 in Taipei, Taiwan
  • 10th Symposium: 2021 (online), Japan

After three years of the COVID-19 pandemic, the gate has finally reopened. EAS11 will therefore be held in Taipei, Taiwan again during October 18-20, 2023.

Chairman, Taiwan Dyestuffs and Pigments Industrial Association
