This International Cellulose Conference is held every 5 years in Japan, starting from the year of 2002 in Kyoto, Tokyo in 2007, Sapporo in 2012 and this time in Fukuoka is the 4th. During the past 15 years, our research field has been drastically changed and expanded. Fifteen years ago, the Cellulose Society of Japan had just started to aim at establishing a sustainable society by partly/or total replacement of some fossil based-materials and nuclear power energy. However, our society had not yet been sufficiently prepared for accepting the idea. Please look at the current situation focusing on biomass energies, cellulose nanofiber (nanocellulose) for industries, and the related basic researches including chemical aspects, physical and structural aspects, bio-related aspects and material aspects. They are all topics that this ICC2017 in Fukuoka deals with.
