Japan Society of Sonochemistry (JSS) has been established in 1992 as a non-profit organisation. The society and its members are interested in the application of ultrasound in chemistry and related fields (e.g. materials science, medicine, biotechnology). About 120 persons join the society. Members are drawn from varying backgrounds and have varying interests.
Each year, usually in autumn, the Society holds a two-day meeting, the venue in different cities in Japan. The meetings cover a wide range of topics in sonochemistry and its application. In addition to regular sessions, several special sessions are organized, with invited lectures and contributed papers. In total, roughly 50 papers are presented and 100 people participate in each meeting.
