Target Group

The focus of this conference is to bring together an international and diverse research community with leading academic scientists and researchers of different backgrounds to share their recent research and affiliation on smart materials. Students and industry are also encouraged to submit their contributions or join as regular participants.

Authors must submit an abstract to apply for oral and poster presentations. The applications will be selected through a review process and if accepted, authors will have the possibility to submit a full paper.  Presented papers and abstracts will be published in the conference proceedings on the conference website and on a USB flash drive that will be handed out to all attendees of the conference.

Conference Structure

The conference will be hosted for two days and is structured as shown in the image bellow. On the first day, we will have two keynote blocks, one from researchers in related scientific fields and another from relevant industry representatives. The keynotes will be followed by two parallel tracks and a poster exhibition. The poster exhibition will end up in a poster session where researches will get to discuss with the author of the presented research. The second day also starts with a keynote block of renowned resarchers and is followed by two parallel sessions. A more detailed program will be developed within the upcoming months and will be shared in Program.
