NEPTIS-24 was held.

NEPTIS (Nisshin Engineering Particle Technology International Seminar) has been held annually since 1992 for the development of the Japanese particle technology and has been focusing on the unofficial discussion by researchers from both in and outside of Japan and on deepening the friendship among them.

NEPTIS was held with 50 lecturers and participants at Komaba Research Campus of Tokyo University on Friday October 30, 2015 this fiscal year, changing its attraction to as a public seminar to help business people since 2013 fiscal year.

The theme this time was “advanced powder simulation technologies for industrial applications” targeting from fine particles to coarse particles, such as from nanoparticles to colloids. Lectures and subsequent question-and-answer sessions were actively taken place with reference to a variety of latest numerical simulation technologies from the discrete element method of powder simulation technology that becomes a current mainstream, the finite element method that is a standard in structure analysis, to the fusion of them FEMDEM.

The followings are the lecturers and their subject of the lecture and the advisers.
