JOCS has the following three distinctive features: 1) we cover a broad spectrum of scientific and technological areas, 2) we have more company-affiliated researchers and engineers than other academic societies, and 3) we target science, technology, and products closely connected with everyday life. Based on these features, our vision is to become “the intersection of science and engineering that breaks new ground in oleo science to support comfortable living”. In other words, JOCS has an open environment where various researchers and engineers can interact with each other and lay the foundation for novel science, technology, and products that support healthy and comfortable lives.
In 2022, we will host the 2nd World Congress on Oleo Science (WCOS 2022). I hope it serves as the abovementioned “intersection,” where we can discuss the potential of oleo science for resuming “comfortable living,” which the pandemic destroyed. We encourage you to attend WCOS 2022 and take full advantage of the emerging oleo science.
