Organizer: Coalition of Science Council of Japan Committee on Physics and Chemistry-IYPT2019 Events Planning Subcommittee

Co-Organizer: The Physical Society of Japan, The Chemical Society of Japan, RIKEN Institute of Physical and Chemical Research

Sponsor: Science Council of Japan-IUPAC Subcommittee

Date: 10:00-17:30, Feb 23 (Sat), 2019

Place: Auditorium Science Council of Japan in Nogizaka, Tokyo
Breakout session: IYPT2019 Events Planning Subcommittee, 12:00-13:15

The purpose of this symposium: UN proclaimed 2019 to be the International Year of the Periodic Table of the Chemical Elements (IYPT2019). This symposium is to be held in order to celebrate the IYPT2019 and to overlook various impacts that have been given to our society in relation to the advancement in our knowledge on the Periodic Table of Elements. The topics to be discussed involve the history of discovering the periodicity of elements together with the elements themselves, the impacts to chemical education, contributions of the Japanese society in these events, the process of naming new chemical elements, the advancements in technologies from the use of chemical elements, and so on.
