This topic is meant to display recent developments in functional materials, in particular those involving a nanoscience or nanotechnological approach. It covers recent innovative aspects of materials research on the design, synthesis, characterization and applications. In particular, we will focus on the most recent advances in the study of composites, hybrid and hetero structured materials, synthesis techniques and studies of their outstanding properties, as well as micro and nano-characterization techniques. Experimental and theoretical research are welcome for presentations.
The symposium will involve invited, contributed, and poster presentations looking to propitiate and enhance interaction and collaboration between national and international researchers and also with potential and established manufacturers
