He is active members, board members, editorial members of ASM International, National Association for Surface Fishing, the USA (NASF), the Institute of Metal Finishing, UK(IMF) as well as the Minerals, Metals & Materials Society, USA(TMS), American Chemical Society (ACS), Electrochemical Society (ECS), the Japan Institute of Metals (JIM) and the Iron & Steel Institute of Japan (ISIJ) etc.  After 30 something long research activities, his current interest and concern are "Industrial Biofilm Detection Ways and their Application” and the related research topics.

1. Biography

Dr. Hideyuki Kanematsu, Ph.D. FIMF (a Fellow of IMF) is a Full Professor in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering, at the National Institute of Technology (NIT) (KOSEN), Suzuka College in Japan. After holding many administrative positions in the college (Dean of the Department of MS and E, 2010–2014, Deputy President, 2014–2018, etc.), he is still a researcher in Materials Surface Science and Engineering and the research advisor for the college. Dr. Kanematsu is particularly interested in biofilms and the interfacial phenomena between metallic surfaces and organisms from an environmental science point of view. He holds a B.Eng. (1981), a M.Eng. (1983) and a Ph.D. in Materials Science and Engineering (1989) all from Nagoya University. He is a member of the National Association for Surface Finishing (NASF, the USA), as well as the Institute of Metal Finishing (IMF, the UK), the Minerals, Metals and Materials Society (TMS, the USA), ASM International (the USA), Electrochemical Society (ECS, the USA), American Chemical Society (ACS, the USA), the Japan Institute of Metals (JIM) and the Iron and Steel Institute of Japan (ISIJ), Surface Finishing Society of Japan (SFSJ, Japan), the Electrochemical Society of Japan (ECSJ), the Japan Society for Heat Treatment (JSHT), Japan Thermal Spray Society (JTSS), etc. For all of these organizations, he is still very active as a member and also as a board member. He also has many honors and publications to his name. He was awarded a Marquis Who’s Who Lifetime Achievement award for his Outstanding Career and is an NASF Scientific Achievement Award Winner.
