The EMN Meetings grew out of a small workshop series that began in 2008 at a traditional villa in Orlando, Florida. Over the next three years, six additional successful workshops were organized on various focus topics in materials science, and grouped under the title of “Villa Conference” in honor of the original 2008 Orlando meeting. The Villa Conference series has grown rapidly beyond the traditional villa setting, continuing to attract highly-quality contributions from members of the international scientific and engineering communities.  In 2012 the first Conference with a broader theme of Energy, Materials and Nanotechnology was held. The EMN meetings now become annual gatherings around the globe, taking place at USA (Orlando and Las Vegas), Mexico (Cancun), China (Beijing, Chengdu, and Hongkong), Thailand (Phuket), Turkey (Istanbul), and Spain.

The EMN  Meeting on 3D Research 2016 will take place on November 28- December 2, 2016 in Osaka, Japan.  To continue its last successful event in Bangkok 2015, the conference will bring together the international research communities from various 3D research disciplines. 3D research, the sciences and technologies for the generation, processing, and display of information in three dimensions, is where disciplines merge and where they diverge into a remarkable range of applications from entertainment to health care that touch, or will soon touch, the lives of millions.

The EMN 3D 2016 will not only be a time to enjoy the company of fellow researchers in the field, but also a time to have fun with friends and family! Situated at the mouth of the Yodo River on Osaka Bay, Osaka is the second largest metropolitan area in Japan. The confident, stylish city is a shopping hub, with fabulous restaurants and nightlife. And also, it’s an ideal base for exploring the Kansai region with many attractions for travelers, including the Universal Studios, Osaka Aquarium, Minami and Osaka Castle, etc. We encourage you to give yourself some time for recreational pursuits!

We look forward to having the pleasure welcoming you to the EMN Meeting on 3D Research 2016.
