OBJECTIVES OF THE CONFERENCE

Solid State Chemistry conference is a traditional forum for presentation and discussion of the most recent advancements in all the fields of Chemistry: theory, numerical modelling, experiments and applications. The event is open to experts and scientists with different backgrounds (chemists, physicists, mathematicians, material scientists, biologists, engineers, etc.) to present, discuss, exchange ideas, methods and results.

The main topics of conference are: Preparation and synthesis; Phase and properties characterization; Nanomaterials, nanocomposites and catalysis; Magnetic, metal and alloy materials; Optical and photovoltaic materials; Theoretical approaches to solid-state chemistry.

The 5-day event will include invited and contributed talks and posters, organized in different thematic sessions, each coordinated by appointed chairs. We contacted several attractive international experts, who will provide a broader view of this complex field and of the main topics.

We would like to cordially invite you to attend the SSC conference, meet your friends and colleagues, actively participate in technical sessions, and thus contribute to the success of the event.
