ShanghaiTech Advances in Research (STAR) Symposium
June 24-26, 2015, Pudong, shanghai , China
The ShanghaiTech University and its School of Physical Sciences and Technology (SPST) are pleased to announce the launch of the STAR symposium series (Shanghai Tech Advances in Research) to promote and support scientific exchange and relationships between Shanghai Tech, China, and the greater international community. The format will be a single stream of elite-level, international plenary lectures in an area of broad scientific interest as quality, not quantity, is the mission of this new school and university.

The topic of the inaugural STAR symposium will focus on "Materials Biology", an emerging frontier of research and education at the intersection of the physical and life sciences. Plenary presentations from leading international names across this novel interdisciplinary field will provide a broad perspective on current research and educational developments as well as point to future challenges and opportunities for innovation. A poster session is planned in the first day of program.
