Terahertz (THz) science and technologies have rapidly advanced in recent years, attracting attention owing to its wide array of applications in THz spectroscopy of materials, THz sensing, and non-destructive evaluation of industrial products. The Molecular Photoscience Research Center, Kobe University and Research Center for Development of Far-Infrared Region, University of Fukui, have both dedicated to the development of THz science and technology for more than ten years as Centers of Excellence in this field. In the Philippine setting, pioneering THz-related research activities have commenced in the University of the Philippines (Diliman and Los Banos), mainly in collaboration with these Japanese institutes. These local THz research works have steadily grown and has expanded to active research work at the De La Salle University.

As such, it is high time to formally announce and showcase this active collaborative link between the two countries by holding the 1st Philippines-Japan THz Workshop (PJTW 2017) Structure of the workshop. This workshop aims to promote THz science and technology as a viable research area and to encourage young researchers and students to participate and present their works. The organizers hope that this small workshop will further strengthen the ties between the THz research communities of Japan and the Philippines.
