Asian society for solid state Ionics (ASSSI) started holding Asian Conference on Solid State Ionics (ACSSI) as biennial event since 1988 beginning at Singapore. Since then, this chain of conference has been held in different Asian countries. Though it is an Asian conference, scientist and intellectuals from all over the world take active participation in this event making it truly international in technical content and quality of interaction. Present ACSSI is the 15th in the chain of ACSSI conferences.
This is the fourth time; this conference is scheduled to be held in India and for the first time in the eastern part of India at Patna under the banner of Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Patna.
Prior to the present event (ACSSI-2016 at Patna), India has already hosted three Asian Conference on Solid State Ionics (ACSSI) in 1992 (Varanasi), 1998 (Surajkund, near New Delhi) and 2008 (Coimbatore).
Asian Society for Solid State Ionics (ASSSIS) is a scientific forum founded in 1986 by the late Prof. Takaheiko Takahashi of Japan. In late 1970s, ion motion in solids was regarded as one of the renowned topics under solid state physics, chemistry and materials science and engineering.
This topic was emerged as a topic of scientific interests amongst all interdisciplinary branches of science and technology in early 1980s which became a field called fast ion conductivity or super ionic conductivity on par with super conductivity (fast electron motion in solids). In mid-1980, late Prof. Takaheiko Takahashi named this emerging research topic as SOLID STATE IONICS (SSI) who was considered the founding father of SSI.Read More»
