The Fifth International Conference on Multifunctional, Hybrid and Nanomaterials will take place 6-10 March 2017 in Lisbon, Portugal.

Energy, the environment and human health have emerged as strategic priorities not only in research but in all aspects of our lives. Hybrid materials have already demonstrated good promise in addressing and offering solutions in each of these priority areas.

The main objective of this large interdisciplinary conference is to bring together, at a truly international level, people with shared interests in hybrid materials, including:

  • Polymer chemists, physicists and engineers
  • Biomaterials chemists, physicists and engineers
  • Organic chemists
  • Inorganic chemists
  • Solid state chemists
  • Sol-gel chemists
  • Composites scientists
  • Colloid chemists and physicists
  • Zeolite, meso- and microporous materials scientists
  • Broad nano- and materials scientists

Plenary speakers include:

Kazuyuki Kuroda, Waseda University, Japan

Maurizio PratoUniversità di Trieste, Italy

John A. RogersUniversity of Illinois, Urbana, IL, USA

Rodney S. RuoffUlsan National Institute of Science and Technology, Korea

Molly M. Stevens, Imperial College London,  UK

Abstract submission is now open. Abstracts for oral and/or poster presentations on the following topics should be submitted online by 16 September 2016:We expect more than 1200 participants from over 60 countries coming from the entire spectrum of chemistry / materials science to attend this unique high-quality international event.
