||With the financial support from Research School I have participated in the 2nd International Symposium on Anodizing Science and Technology in Japan. It offered me a unique opportunity to learn and understand the latest progress in the community. Presenting my work in front of the expert of the community was a good opportunity to look back the research in the past and to look forward the work in the future. Moreover, the lecture, oral and poster presentation given by participants enhanced mutual understanding between scientists, promoted the exchange of experience and knowledge. In this case collaboration can be foreseen, and new idea can be motivated.
