The bistability of  spin transition materials has long inspired potential applications related to information storage and colorimetric sensing, while more recent advances in materials discovery, fabrication methods and understanding of solid-state behavior are leading to demonstrations of wider ranging technologies in nanoelectronics, molecular spintronics, photonics, as mechanical actuators, and in cooperative adsorption.

The focus of the international conference on Phase Transition and Dynamical Properties of Spin Transition Materials (PDSTM) is basic research on spin-transitions and related phase transition materials. The conference gathers experts in all aspects of spin-transition research including physicists interested in phase behavior and new phenomena based on spin-state switching, chemists with expertise in the design and synthesis of new switchable materials with new properties, materials researchers applying modern fabrication methods and device technologies, and theoreticians tackling the complex problem of coupling electronic spin-states to the elastic properties of materials from the macro- to nanoscale. 

PDSTM-2023 is the eighth meeting of this international community. Following the inaugural PDSTM in Tokyo in 2006, the meeting was held in Bordeaux in 2008, Tsukuba in 2010, Versailles in 2012, Tokyo in 2014, Gandia in 2016, and Gainesville in 2019. It is a great pleasure to host PDSTM 2023 in Tokyo and welcome this international community to Japan.
