Dear Colleague,

Welcome to website of the Solid State Chemistry Conference (SSC 2016) to be held from September 18 to September 23, 2016 in Prague, Czech Republic.

The conference is organized in honour of Prof. Miloslav Frumar (University of Pardubice, Czech Republic) on the occasion of his 80th birthday, to celebrate his life-long scientific contribution, particularly to the field of solid state chemistry and inorganic chemistry.

Prof. Ing. Miloslav Frumar, DrSc., has dedicated his lifetime work to research, university education of qualified specialists, cultivation of his own expertise, as well as to the establishment of a school focused on new inorganic materials, in particular on crystalline and amorphous semiconductors, and on the development of new education courses for MSc. and PhD. level, thus contributing to the advancement of Czech tertiary education as such, beginning at the Institute of Chemical Technology in Pardubice and later continuing with the same commitment at the Faculty of Chemical Technology of the University of Pardubice. As a manager he helped create the academic environment and develop specialized departments, including the Department of General and Inorganic Chemistry and the Joint Laboratory of Solid State Chemistry, established with the Czech Academy of Sciences. With a unique drive and persistence, he has passed his experience on to students, striving to arouse their interest and identify and encourage talents in chemistry; supervising their doctoral study, he has educated a number of outstanding alumni, many of whom became authorities in their field of expertise and work at universities or research and development centres both in the Czech Republic and abroad. He has initiated and led a number of projects and conferences, including international ones (he is the founder of the Solid State Chemistry international conference), whose significance has expanded beyond the borders of the Czech Republic. His school has a worldwide reputation, especially the study of crystalline and amorphous semi-conductors. His work and publications are rightfully respected and appreciated across the international community. 

We welcome your active participation and discussion in the SSC 2016. Invited speakers will present significant recent developments and new applications in the synthesis, characterisation and fundamental properties of solid compounds; and outline future perspectives. Their contributions will be complemented by oral/poster presentations from conference participants.

Looking forward to meeting you at the SSC 2016,

Adriana Lančok
