Welcome to the International Conference on New Diamond and Nano Carbons (NDNC) 2020. On behalf of the conference executive committee, I would like to convey my appreciation for all of you participating and contributing. I am a new executive committee chair of NDNC which was launched in Osaka, Japan, in 2007 by merging the former International Conference on New Diamond Science and Technology (ICNDST) and Applied Diamond Conference (ADC), and the 13 conferences has been being held in the Pacific Rim countries. The NDNC constituted a unique opportunity for academics and industry professionals to discuss the latest issues and progresses in the field of diamond, carbon, and related materials and devices. In addition, I would like to express sincere thanks to previous executive committee chairs, Dr. N. Fujimori, Prof. Y. Tzeng, and Prof. R. Nemanich, for organizing the NDNC conference with great efforts. I will do my best to manage the conference, and I am looking forward to meeting with you.
