The series of ACCMS-VO meetings are expected to establish the Center for Asian Computational Materials Science (and Technology) somewhere in Asian region utilizing internet and distributed computer hardware and software resources. Before establishement of the physical center, collaborative works should be accumulated, especially using TOMBO and other original softwares to win the game with other research groups. We will discuss deeply on this matter in the occasion of the 10th Anniversary ACCMS-VO meeting in Sendai, Japan, where the ACCMS community started 15 years ago with only 30 researchers (from 10 countries/regions) on the subject of computational materials science (and technology), which was not popular at that time, and actually we have been working to establish such a concept from that time. Membership of ACCMS is now issued to whom interested in our activity. Please send necessary information to Prof. Kawazoe to join us.
