Call for Abstracts: 12th International Conference on Materials Chemistry (MC12)
20 - 23 July 2015 University of York, United Kingdom
Oral abstract deadline: 19 January 2015
Poster abstract deadline: 11 May 2015
The meeting is organised into six themes run in four parallel sessions, with two poster sessions to allow maximum participation of all delegates. Six Plenary Lecturers will talks across the scope of the conference, while 24 Keynote Speakers will set the scene for different aspects of the six topics, supported by more than 100 contributed talks. Around 300 posters will be displayed over the two sessions.
The themes represent the major scientific headings for the meeting and reflect the key position of these topics in contemporary materials chemistry. However, in assembling the programme we are also keen to see subjects such as theory and modelling, ionic liquids, multifunctional materials, novel synthesis, innovative characterisation techniques and liquid crystals represented across the different subjects.
Encompassing biomaterials for tissue engineering, biomaterials for healthcare, green biomaterials and advanced synthesis methods of biomaterials
Electronic and Magnetic Materials
This will encompass the relationship between the chemistry and the electronic and/or magnetic properties of inorganic, molecular, hybrid and nano materials using both experimental and computational/theoretical approaches.
Encompassing all aspects of Materials Chemistry related to energy conversion, storage and fuel generation.
Encompassing synthesis, characterisation and application of materials whose functionality depends on their nanoscale dimensions.
This will encompass the chemistry and properties of porous materials for sorption, storage and separation.
Soft Matter Materials Chemistry
Including wide and varied aspects of soft matter materials showing the power of the interplay between a priori design and physical function.
