CfP: Conference on Soft Matter and Functional Materials at NIT Calicut [Mar 2-4]: Submit by Jan 26

By: Jasmeet | 12 Jan 2020 4:10 PM

NIT Calicut is organizing a three day National on Soft Matter and Functional Materials from March 2 to 4, 2020.

The program will give an overview of both the fundamental and applied aspect of functional materials and soft matter and its current status to the participants. The conference will be an ideal platform for young researchers and doctoral students to interact with leading experts in this multidisciplinary, high impact and industrially relevant research area.

  • To provide a unique and global view on soft and functional materials across disciplines (physics, chemistry, biology, materials science and engineering).
  • To provide an in-depth understanding of the progress in various active soft matter systems, experimental techniques, an actuation mechanism, and their applications.
  • To explore the research on functional materials towards energy/ electronics applications.

Original works on the following indicative topics, but not limited to, are welcome to be submitted for the conference.

  • Surfaces, interfaces and actuation strategies
  • Liquid crystals, colloids, liquids, polymers
  • Foams, gels, and granular materials
  • Theoretical and experimental soft matter physics
  • Functional materials; synthesis and characterization
  • Organic and molecular electronics
  • Materials for energy and environmental application
