13th International Conference on Solid State Chemistry

It is with pleasure that we can introduce to you the 13th International Conference on Solid State Chemistry (SSC) that follows those held in Karlovy Vary (1986), Pardubice (1989), Bratislava (1996), Prague (2000), Bratislava (2002), Prague (2004), Pardubice (2006), Bratislava (2008), Prague (2010), Pardubice (2012), Trenčianske Teplice (2014) and Prague (2016).

The conference series was founded by Prof. Frumar as a symposium for scientists working in the field of solid state chemistry, chemistry and physics of novel inorganic materials. New concepts, approaches, fundamental understanding, as well as the application aspects of inorganic materials have been discussed. The conference has become a truly international event with a worldwide geographical distribution of the participants.

The SSC2018 will be a forum for the presentation of new research results in the area of solid state chemistry and also bridge the gap between scientific understanding and technical requirements and application, so that the enormous future potential of solid state chemistry, materials and technologies, is realized effectively.

The SSC2018 also encompasses different fields of solid state chemistry and physics, which is reflected in the conference aim of being a forum for discussion of all types of inorganic solids.

We look forward to seeing all of you in Pardubice in September 2018.

Chair of the SSC 2018 conference
