The Regional Annual Fundamental Science Symposium 2012 (RAFSS 2012) has been successfully held in Persada Johor International Convention Centre, Johor Bahru, and is also due to the support of Profs. Yasuhiro Shiraishi, Tadao Nagatsuma and Massaki Ashida from Graduate School of Engineering Science, Osaka University, and Prof. Hisao Yoshida from Nagoya University. These professors also gave scientific talks at Universiti Teknologi Malaysia. Also, I would like to congratulate Mr. Shamsuddin Chik Zi (my MSc student) on winning the best poster (content) in RAFSS 2012. Prof. Shiraishi very interested in the simple method to make mesoporous materials proposed in Shamsuddin’s poster. So, he gave high marks to Shamsuddin’s poster.
