Plenary Speaker

Haruyuki Inui

Haruyuki Inui is a Professor at Department of Materials Science and Engineering, Kyoto University, Japan He has earned his Bachelor, Master and Doctor of Engineering degrees from Department of Materials Science and Engineering, Osaka University, Japan respectively in 1983, 1985 and 1988. He spent a year as a postdoctoral fellow in Department of Materials Science and Engineering, University of Pennsylvania, U.S.A., before joining Kyoto University as an Assistant Professor in 1989. He has been active in the high-temperature structural and intermetallic materials field as one of the world leaders in the relevant field. He has made experimental research on lattice defects and mechanical properties of intermetallic compounds such as Ti-aluminides, Co-aluminides and transition-metal silicides for many years. He has elucidated many important scientific aspects of many different intermetallics in establishing the structure-property relationships on atomistic scales based on his analysis of dislocations and related defects by transmission electron microscopy. He has made plenary and keynote talks and acted as an organizer in many international conferences in the relevant field. He has also acted as one of the editors for some international scientific journals such as Intermetallics (Elsevier) and Science and Technology of Advanced Materials (Taylor and Francis). He has been a member of boards of directors of Japan Institute of Metals and Materials and Japanese Society of Microscopy. He is currently a Vice President of Japan Institute of Metals and Materials and a member of Science Council of Japan.
